I haven't done very many "1000 Round Reviews" in my life. I honestly can't remember any other attempt to do one that went so flawlessly. That is really saying something. I am very impressed Kimber EVO. The example I have is a great gun. I'd carry it for defensive use. I wouldn't be afraid to trust it to protect myself or anyone I care about it in a defensive situation. That's something I never thought I'd be able to say about a stock Kimber.
