153 rounds through each so far. All brass. Sig Sauer 147gr fmj, Winchester 147gr hp, Midwest 147gr fmj, and Midwest 124gr fmj. I know its seems slow, but have to do it through 2 guns - since my wife can't (oh darn ).

Hmm..something fishy going on here. Iím wondering if itís really for your wife or wanted to have them both? Just kidding bro..Actually I wanted to buy one for my wife as well but she couldnít rock the slide. So Iím saving for a K6 for her.

Hey man its legit, my wife's pregnant and the OB said no! Somebody's got to break in her Micro 9, and I suppose it's my "burden to bare". Know what you mean regarding the slide racking. My mom and my wife both had trouble racking semi-autos. In their cases it came mostly down to technic. IF your wife wants a 380 the Remington RM380 has the easiest racking slide I've ever tried. The new Shield EZ 380 and the Sig 365 are supposed to be a really easy to rack as well. What is the K6? Forgive me if it's a Kimber - I'm new to Kimber (first 2 are the Micro 9s).

The K6 is Kimbers new revolver. All this talk without pictures I wonder about the wife thing as well.

Iíve seen the new Shield EZ and sure thing itís easy. I really want the Sig 365 for its size and capacity but I will not buy it for the reason that I might like it as much as my micro 9. The K6 is a Kimber Revolver with 6 rounds capacity of .357 magnum. For my wife probably I will just load it with a .38 Special standard velocity.

Yep, that's what the doctor said. A couple of rounds might not be a big deal, but we'd be pushing it with regular range session. Better safe than sorry. Especially in our case, as we've lost four babies.

Although expensive, I've read they re really nice. I dry fired a few times at my lgs, really smooth.
