I am going to purchase a new 3in 45ACP. I think it is between the Colt Defender or the S&W Pro series. Any input would be a great help. I am done with Kimbers.

Bought my Colt Defender. Took it to the range and shot about 200 rounds of mixed ammo. Shot great except for the range ammo I bought. Multiple problems with it. I had never heard of it before. Lesson learned. Ate the good stuff like it was starving. I am a happy guy because it shoots great and I no longer own a Kimber.

Wow, I have two Kimbers and wish I had three. :-)

Robalan I am glad you are happy with yours. Kimber would not or could not fix mine. Two very good gunsmiths here in Atlanta told me it had more problems then they were willing to fix. In all fairness I think I am the only one who has had problems with a Kimber. I just makes me mad when the Company provided me terrible customer service. There standard answer to me was shoot more rounds thru it. And " We can find nothing wrong with it."

Sorry to here about the service problems. You pay a lot of money for them. They should have done something for you. I think about that kind of thing every time I buy a gun or car.
