The Toad's pictures of the Solo beside the R9 made me go out and look at one today.  They really are a lot smaller in person than they look like in pictures for some reason.  A retired corrections officer saw me looking at it and he said the same thing.  It had a very nice feel to it.
 The one we looked at was a dealer's show model only.  They were askinf $730 with a 3 month wait or for $900 Kimber will pull one off the line and ship tomorrow.  What a way to treat customers.

I am seeing quite a few used Solo's coming across on GB also.

With  the issues we read about on some of the gun's reliablity, I would be a little afraid of these.

Sounded very reasonable to me, if I were to get one I want the all silver model and it doesn't appear there are any out there yet.
  This place with the two tone said they have not had any all silver but have them on order.
