I find myself in a similar place. I partially want to buy an AR-15 just to stick it to Beto, but I find myself drawn to the Mossberg MVP Patrol rifles. I like the idea of a low profile rifle, but...

My favorite Kimber is still my Compact Custom, which has been my preferred EDC since 2012. Not many parts are stock, but only because of preference, optimizing, and personal fun/learning.
