Smallish range report for the micro carry

Took little guy to the range tonight. Love it. Recoil is light like advertised. Accurate. Was hitting three inch groups at 10 yards with minimal effort. This little guy is one fun shoot.
Only put 1175ish rounds through it. No fte, ftl, no failures of any kind. Used wwb. Another hundred rounds failure free and I will be putting an sr9c on the block. This is one nice little shooter. I think I found my deep conceal ccw weapon of choice.

Thanks for the report. It looks like a great little gun that I can see myself with by next year.

I really want a full size Kimber but I seem to have a thing for small guns.

Glad to hear the range report on your Micro Carry, I just wish they would make their way up to one of my LGS.

Sounds great. I have an LCP but I really like the Micro Carry. Does the slide lock open on the last round? That is the one thing I hate about the LCP. Would appreciate the info if it does lock open.

Bad news, (good news for you) at least for me, cause I was really wanting some reasons why I should not buy a Micro. But mostly all I am hearing is good so that makes me want one even more. The main issue I am having is I have not seen one in person. So far I have just missed seeing one at several local gun shops.
I think because this would be the only .380 caliber pistol that I own it would mostly be just a fun/range and or fishing gun. But that thought could change whenever I obtain one of the little hard to find buggers.

Slide locks open on the lastvround fired. Its a mini 1911. Comes apart for cleaning like regular sort of. You line up the notch likevregular but you push the take down pin whike holding the slide - takes a little but it isnt hard. Im really happy with it.

Great. Thanks for the info. I really have to check it out. I've gut the BUG. No pun intended.
