.38 Super - can't have just one

A couple of months ago I finally decided John Browning must have done something right when he designed the 1911, and I made up my mind to get me one. The problem was I couldn't decide what I wanted it chambered for. I like the .45ACP, but I wanted something different. And the 10mm was out because I couldn't find a dealer within 300 miles who had a 1911 chambered for the 10mm in stock. So, after lurking here in this forum for a few weeks, I thought - why not a .38 Super? You folks seem to like it.

Well, I found a Kimber Stainless Target II in .38 Super in Idaho Falls on Saturday. What a fantastic pistol! We only had time to put about 60 rounds through it Saturday afternoon, but it never faltered once. And rolling pop cans offhand at 25 yards was almost too easy.

However, I do have a complaint - now my wife wants one too! She's had a Sig .9mm for several years. But after shooting my new .38 Super, her .9mm isn't good enough. Oh well. She's worth it and I guess that's what money is for.

I have the same wife problem :-? That's why I have two 38 Supers. An Auto Ordinance and a Colt.
