Kimber Micro Carry

Good Morning!

I just ordered a Kimber Micro Carry and should get it by the end of the week. Excited as IL has recently approved CC and I should be getting my license by month end. I am hoping it's as good as I think it will be as it will be a great gun for my wife to use as well.

Thoughts on a good carry holster?

This guy is a forum member and his prices are pretty sweet from what I have seen looking around.

Your new Kimber is worth the babying, I wouldn't skimp on the holster for sure! Check some of his work!

Thaifighter06, can I ask which dealer is ordering the Micro Carry for you? I also live in the Chicago suburbs and have been chasing this elusive gun for 2 years. Every dealer I've ever asked about it has done everything but laugh in my face. What kind of a holster are you looking for, if it's a pocket holster check out my thread "Broke down and bought a Sig" check out the similarities of the Micro Cary and the P238, the guns are almost identical. Pictures of the gun can be found on in post 1 and 80, pictures and a link to the holster I bought for it are in post 106.

I would be curious about a side by side comparison between the Kimber and a Sig p238 even a verbal from the gun counter over which one seems better, more solid, etc.
The Mrs. has a 238 and well I like Kimbers so you all can figure it out....

And welcome if in I haven't done that already.

Micro Carry

I bought my first Kimber via gunbroker from Shooters Supply and Law Enforcement Equipment out of Louisville, KY. The gentlemen I worked with, Kevin, was great to talk to and easy to work with. After the Pro Carry transaction I said I was interested in the Micro and asked him to let me know when he got some in. He emailed this past weekend and we closed up the deal today.

Irony

Well, I just received word from him that the gun sold without him knowing. So I may not get it for a while. He also asked that I didn't share his contact information so he wouldn't get too bombarded. It seems we should all open up gun stores.

My mistake thaifighter06, I was under the impression you had ordered the Micro Carry through a dealer. It sounds like Kevin is just taking orders and filling them with purchases from gunbroker.

Hey guys. Funny you're talking about a micro. I just picked one up here in Louisville Ky from Shooters Sup....aw crap. Sorry.

Just kidding. I am from The Ville though. I shoot a Stainless Pro Carry II and love it. Welcome to the forum thaifighter.

I ordered a micro today on gunbroker, was $610 with free shipping. Hope to get it by the end of the week, will post a range report. Also recently got a new Eclipse Custom II which is amazing. Hope the Micro is as nice.

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.
