2011 was the year of the introduction of the Kimber Solo, and almost immediately, our seduction began. Sure there is always those who say, “anything but a .45 ACP, and you’re wasting your time.” Here is the real truth, if you’re a pathetic shot and can handle the recoil………..you better carry a .45 ACP. If you are a decent shot, and you are familiar with the weapon that you’re carrying, you can drop someone right in their tracks with a .22LR. The Kimber Solo is a 9mm that, with a little…...and I do mean a very little practice, you can turn the lights out…….and Elvis will not be leaving the building, ever.
Let me give you a rundown on the little Solo. Kimber has put together a beautiful little concealed carry weapon that is a most formidable opponent to any perpetrator. The Solo is an aluminum frame, stainless slide, striker fired, DAO semi-automatic, that only weighs 17 ounces (empty). The little handgun has an overall length of 5.5 inches, is 3.9 inches in height, 1.2 inches in width, and sports a 3 inch barrel. The magazine holds 6+1 up the tube, making it faster and deadlier than mad cottonmouth. I never “carry” without specialty ammunition. There is an entire plethora of viable options out there that are labeled as “personal defense” ammunition; this article isn’t long enough to pursue that angle.
What is likeable about this gun? …….everything! Although you can only get a couple of fingers on it, the angle of the handle is exactly like a 1911. Other things that will remind you of “the king”, are the location of the ambidextrous safety and magazine release. I would carry one of these without apology or fear. If you are ever someplace and things start to go wrong, if you have a Solo, they won’t be wrong for long. Your first order of business, in any unsolicited altercation, is to come home alive………...and the Solo will certainly make sure that you’re not flying solo again.
