    I've been binge watching "Homicide Hunter: Joe Kenda" in one of the earlier episode he claims he carried. as a police detective. a stainless steel .45 caliber 1911 from Kimber. And that it was the most accurate handgun he ever fired. As far as I can tell that gun is only shown in that scene. In every dramatic reenactment in which a gun is drawn, the actor playing younger Joe Kenda, carries a black pistol. probabbly a Glock. So, did he lie, and this one scene was just a commercial for Kimber? Or are the TV series producers just too cheap to buy the actor who plays him in the reinactsments a Kimber?

    BTW the young "Joe Kenda" is always in a suit (unless off duty) and has hair cut short and combed. One time they showed an actual news recording of the real Lt Joe Kenda as he was back in the 80s, his hair was curly and he wasn't wearing a suit and tie. The actor playing him in the reenactments looks nothing like him.
    I saw the episode, too; I'm guessing he probably used it in the latter part of his career. As for TV reenactments, seems like they don't even bother having firearm experts or consultants anymore. Half the time they use the same racking a pump shotgun sound for handguns, both revolvers and semi-autos... they don't even seem embarrassed about it, and they should.

    Joes gun and other ridiculous comments

    OMG

    You guys DO realize that the TV series is... a TV SHOW right?

    Its not like JK had a camera crew following him around..
    the ACTOR is .. an ACTOR

    who cares what MACH UP gun he is carrying, it is for the effect of the show.
    for gods sake, the actor is right handed, JK is a lefty, the price of newspapers in the machine is current day prices.. its all wrong, but again, it is a REinactment, its FAKE, its for show...
    holy crap!
    and to think I even wasted time pointing this out..

    Now on the subject, He caried a Kimber 1911
    lots of cops carry 1911's - the old school cops.. the new era cops are all movie and TV struck and carry SIGs and Glocks, which are great, it doesnt matter what the firearm is, If he says he carried a Kimber, why would he lie? he carried a Kimber..

    I would think Kimber gave him some money for that IF there were Kimber advertisements on the Hulu series, maybe even his presence on the site..
    I doubt Kimber needs a small town Co Springs detective to push their line..
    they would make better use of advertising dollars if they threw a few Kimber Arms in thug movies..
    Just my two cents..


    one last thing I have to laugh hard at.. one guy said, " it looks like a glock, i guess they were too cheap to buy the actor a kimber" or something like that..
    that is SCARY that someone thinks guns in movies are real..
    I would be afraid to be around that person if they actually owned a firearm.. not too much intellect there..

    OH MY GOD


    LOL

    Why would he lie? What could he possibly gain from lying?

    I think we caught you on the day you switched back to regular coffee.....
    “Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote" - Benjamin Franklin

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."
