Black Friday purchase range report

I got out to the range this morning. 96 rounds through the Micro .380. Started out with WWB that had a truncated squared off nose. First round wouldn't feed but could turn the chamber so it would start to fall out and it fed and went into battery. The rest of the mag ran perfectly. That happened in the first 3 mags. I bought some round nose FMJ Federal and no more problems. Finished the day with a box of Federal hydra shok 90gr and they ran perfectly.

Overall it's much easier to shoot and I'm way more accurate with the Micro .380 than with my Taurus TCP. I think this will be a regular carry soon. I've got 2 extended nags on the way. I really like this Kimber!

Nice shooting Shockfinder! Glad to hear that you had a positive experience with you M380 the first time out! My micro 380 did not like the WWB flat nose rounds either, does better with the ball ammo.
