She wants her permit! Is the Baby Kimber too heavy for purse carry.
Is the recoil too sharp. Thought about a SIG 232 but they aren't Sigs best as far as reliability.
What do you guys think? The Kimber is like jewelry...Yum

It's definately heavier than the alloy framed versions. I suggest letting her handle the two and make her own decision.

Isn't the eclipse all steel? It'll be heavy...I went w/a Kahr PM9 you can also get a PM40 if you want.

The Eclipse is the only pistol that size Kimber makes with a steel frame. All the other Ultras have alloy frames.

Does your wife shoot .45 ACP well?

I got my fiance a Kimber Compact CDP, which she shoots rather well. I had her shoot 9mm, .40 SW, and .45 ACP in a variety of pistols (large and small, heavy and light) and she did equally well with all 3 calibers. If the .45 had been too much to handle I wouldn't have gotten it for her. "Carryability" is important, but it's secondary to "shootability".

She luvs the the 45 cal and is as good or better than me. I'm the rifle guy of the family
We will have to check out the weights at the gun show this weekend.
Also considering Springfields 3 inch barrel compact 1911 in Black Stainless. That one's purty too.
I trained her well because she prefers only all black firearms
