I may in fact have to change my handle. I have two Series I Kimbers that are totally reliable and I love both of them, but since Kimber went to that Schwartz FP safety, they have lost me and I just can't warm up to them any more. It's a shame because they used to build really fine weapons. Maybe they still do, I just don't trust them. I live 30 miles from STI and I have a personal friend that works there, any warranty issues that might pop up are taken care of in a couple of days. I/We own three of them now, and I'm alread lusting after the next one. The fact that I can buy STI cheaper than Colt, Springer, or Kimber also has a strong influemce on my decisions of what to buy.
