Kimber Solo Carry

In an age where pocket pistols are becoming predominantly polymer, Kimber wanted to give shooters an all-metal option that brought power and a little style to the concealed carry gun. They did just that with the Kimber Solo series.

The Kimber Solo Carry is small, lightweight and easy to carry—but it's also chambered in 9mm, giving its handler more stopping power than most guns in its weight class.

To put the icing on the cake, Kimber adapted a handful of features from the beloved 1911 pistol to suit the Solo. Both the ambidextrous thumb safety and magazine are carried over. It also comes equipped with a single action striker-fired trigger.

With a lot of the perks of a larger gun worked into a very concealable, all-metal frame, there's little to dislike about the Solo—and that's why it's the AmericanRifleman.org Gun of the Week.
