arent we supposed to love all our children equally? grin

kinda depends on what i'm doing & how i'm hunting...the 452 is more trim & light & stock dimensions fit me better. trigger is good after some mods, and accuracy is excellent. if i'm walking much i like it.

The kimber is heavier & holds steadier, also has a great trigger, and is obscenely accurate, as in 100 yard head shots if i'm not wobbling around, if i plan on taking a stand in open areas & doing the sitting game i pack it.
