Got my Micro 380 back from Kimber

I've been a little busy with Christmas and all, so I haven't told you that I received my M380 Advocate from it's second trip back to the Wizard. This time they replaced the barrel, ejector, extractor, and recoil spring. I got it back before Christmas, so took about 4 weeks on the return plus UPS mis-handled it and took a few extra days instead of 2 day deliver.

So, I've had it out twice on the range and so far so good, no problems with any type of failures, no ejections hitting me in the face and head anymore either! Well, guess you could say there were a couple of failures; maybe 3-4 times the 7th round did not chamber properly, it was nose up at the breech. Could be me though, no problems if I slow it down a bit. I usually shoot 2 to the body and 1 to the head rapidly, so could be my movements? Other than that it fired about 200 rounds without a hiccup. I really like this pistol, it is fun to shoot and deadly accurate. I am considering the CT laser grips on it except the original grips are purple and black...they are pretty!

Got a couple of other cool Christmas gifts that I will need to post a range report and photos for...got a Colt AR-15 9mm with a C-More sight and a Sig Ultra Compact two tone 45 ACP. I'm all set...can one ever have enough guns though? We'll see! (photos from the web not mine)

Why you wasting ammo? Save a couple rounds and pop the pineapple and call it a day.

Nice additions to your firearm collection. I really like the look of that Sig compact!
