Greatest Shooting Pistol Ever

Well first off, let me say hello. I'll go post in the new members section after this.
Secondly, the reason for the post. I just picked up my Micro STS from my FFL. I must say, I have been missing out on some serious fun shooting. I took it straight to range, unboxed it, loaded it, and put 50 rnds of cheap target ammo through it flawlessly. Some may say I should've cleaned it first, but I look at it like this. If its going to have issues I want to know before I've disassembled it. But lucky me, 50 of the most crisp trigger pulls and 50 smoothest cycles I have ever had behind any pistol, including .22lr, well that may be a stretch. However I may even go as far as saying that it has a recoil only slightly more than my wife's Ruger SR22.
Now with the Micro being so relatively new, no LGS has an IWB in store. However the LGS/Range I frequent had a nice Canon Flashbang IWB for a P238, which from my reading is practically the same as the Kimber Micro. So I pull out the holster from its packaging, slide the Kimber in and it fits like a glove.
Needless to say I'm on cloud nine with this pistol, especially for $550 otd.

You bad enabler people! You keep posting these great range reports and pics of these MICRO'S and I am going to have to buy one. I kind of agree with your theory, it is going to be good or bad probably won't make a lot of difference if you clean it or not. If I was going to do it that way I would probably add some lube first then test fire.

Welcome to the site from Tennessee!

I used to have a Mustang and a 380 Govt model. I like the Micro. Just wished they had made a 9mm near that size.

Congrats on your new Micro & also new holster. I haven't seen a Micro in person, but I own a Sig P238 that I truly love.

Congratulations! I saw a few Micros at the shop in Owensboro the last time I was there. They were beautiful!

Enjoy yours!

Sure making me wish the Micro was around when we purchased the P238. I'm not loving the trigger on the P238.

Welcome to the forum.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois flip4eva83 and congratulations on the new Micro Carry STS. I'm still waiting for one to show up in one of my LGS. The reason Kimber suggests cleaning and lubing their guns BEFORE shooting them is so that you DON'T have any problems on your first range visit.

Welcome to the forum.
Didn't like the trigger on my P238 much either. Had the gunsmith at the LGS do a some work on it after the first 500 rounds - MUCH better. Money well spent!
