This gun is SEX. I was looking at Kimbers last night and although they are my dream, I can't justify the price.. The mil-spec is affordable and oh so nice. I am looking for something with less than a 5" barrel though, and I see on SA's website that they sell a Mil-spec compact with a 3.5" barrel, is that too short? I was looking at 4"ers last night and that is perfect, don't know if maybe 3.5" is too short. I'm not looking for a gun to carry, I'm just looking for one to keep in the house, and to take to the range. Also the Milspec only holds like a 7 round clip, isn't that weak? Or have I played too much resident evil? BTW I've never owned a gun, just became interested a few weeks ago so I'm pretty dense.
