You are by no means a candy ass. I've long thought that about most Kimbers that I've owned. I understood it on the Solo, but it made the gun unusable for my wife, who was both in the Army and a very avid shooter. I noticed that it caused me to slightly miss the chambering on several occasions. The firearm must be usable under all conditions to be effective, and this characteristic of Kimbers takes it out of that category for a whole lot of people.
