Wife and I went to the range today. I had my new Kimber Micro Carry, she had her trusty Bersa Thunder Concealed Carry, both in .380.
I shot 100+ rounds of store bought ammo to break my pistol in. She shot a similar number of mild reloads. My shooting was a bit more accurate than hers, but the sights on the Kimber are a lot better. She fired the Kimber a few times, but didn't like it. The recoil was just too snappy for her. The Bersa has nice hand filling grips (which I made out of curly maple for her) and they are long enough for the magazine to hold 8 rounds vs. 6 in the Kimber.
The Kimber ran fine. The only glitch I ran into was that the slide failed to stay open after the last round three times. I even fired a magazine of the mild reloads through the Kimber w/o a problem. Not sure if it's the flat recoil spring, but it was as dependable as the wife's Bersa which has thousands of rounds though it.
Not sure what's with the slide not staying open, but it's a minor problem that I won't loose sleep over. I'll buy another magazine and see if that makes a difference.
Oh, one final thought: The trigger pull is terrible on the Kimber. Heavy with a lot of creep. I'm gonna have to do something about that.
