My Micro is going to replace my Glock 27 for my primary carry gun. I was initially happy about the thought of a smaller firearm, but am somewhat having 2nd thoughts about a smaller caliber and lower magazine capacity. Guess I will get used to it or I won't.
I hope you can post some pictures of the Micro Carry when you get it.

Corbin - Ifeel your pain. I am a dedicated 1911 kinda guy but I do have a rock solid Glock 19 in my arsenal. But an EDC must feel comfortable, especially when you are dressing light. If I start to hear good things about the Micro on this board I will look into it.

Wink Hey Ya'll!

Welcome to the forum from beautiful downtown Monroe, Georgia!!!

That sucks that your Micro Carry got sold out from under you!! Lots of folks are looking for this particular model and can't find it. I'm not a big fan of the .380 ACP cartridge. For a small, light carry pistol, I have a Smith and Wesson M&P40 Shield.

I feel much better carrying a .40 S&W than a .380. That's just me!! YMMV

.40 makes a big *BANG*

.380 not so much.

I handled a Kimber Micro Carry this afternoon. Came with a nice cardboard box, one magazine, Kimber pouch and price tag of $535+tax.

(Second Amendment Sports, Pima rd, Tucson.)

Hunting, Fishing, Camping, Archery and Guns in Bakersfield, California and Tucson, Arizona

The Kimber Micro is a bit larger than the Ruger LCP 2gen, .380acp. Shop clerk and I compared.

No, I didn't buy it.

Cool

Hello everyone,

I'm new to the forum... I picked up the Kimber Micro Carry in black last Sunday, had it out to the range twice. Aside from two failure's to load, it ran great, about 250 rounds of blazer through it so far. Bought Pow'rBall for defensive carry.

It is a real pleasure to shoot, nice sights, next to no recoil.

Bought the gun or $599 at local shop, they said they got two, sold one the day before I got mine, I nabbed their last one.

I normally carry a Ruger LC9 in the summer, the Micro is gonna be my new goto, although the Ruger is 9mm, the trigger on the Micro with SA is so much better, plus the Kimber is all class.

I went with a knock-off sticky holster from Amazon for it, so far it is working well.

Here are some pics...

Compared to my Kimber Crimson Custom:

Here it is amongst some other handguns (1st row up & down, Ruger LC9, Walther PPK, Kimber Micro Carry... 2nd Row Colt .45, Kimber Crimson Custom .45... 3rd Row Plastic Austrian Junk ):

Hi guys,

Tried posting this the other day but I don't think it took...

I picked up a Kimber Micro in black last week at a local dealer for $599. I have been carrying a Ruger LC9 on hot days or when my dress doesn't allow me to carry something bigger. I was attracted to the Micro because of it's close operation to a 1911.

Had it out to the range twice, shot about 150 rounds of blazer and some other old crap that my buddy had left over from a few years back. It had two failures to feed, both in the hands of my buddies at the time, other than that it ran smooth, shot real nice, next to no recoil, and the sights are good. The trigger is a thousand times better than the LC9 as you would expect.

Not sure if it is because this is my newest toy or not, but gotta say I really like it so far... I'm hoping to track down one of the extended mags from Kimber for it.

Here are some pics along side some other guns for comparison.

Kimber Micro and Kimber Crimson Custom:

1st Row (up and down): Ruger LC9, Walther PPK, Kimber Micro
2nd Row: Ruger 22/45, Colt .45, Kimber Crimson Custom
3rd Row: Cheap Austrian Plastic Junk 9mm & .45
