Do you carry with a round chambered?

Do you Carry the micro 9 with a round chambered hammer back and safety on? How do you carry?

Also will the micro 9 handle +P loads?

Thanks

I do and according to Kimbers website....Yes

+P ammo manufactured to SAAMI specs is fine to use as a defensive round or for occasional range use only. Our pistols are rated to handle +P ammo. However, we do not recommend a steady diet of them, as they are rough on the pistol and will accelerate the wear on the gun and may shorten the life of the recoil spring.

There guns not clubs. Of course I carry locked and loaded.

I have a Sig 938 which is basically the same gun and a round is chambered, cocked and locked.

Like JC I have the Sig P938 which is the kissing cousin of the M9 and I carry it condition 1 with +P ammo.

Condition 1. It has few enough rounds to begin with, I don't want to sacrifice one.

I don't own a Micro 9 yet, but I carry my .380's cocked and lock in my pocket.

9mm +P will be a handful in the Micro 9. IMO, standard pressure HST's or GDHP's will serve you well. 124gr or 147gr.

Standard pressure HST's is what I carry too in 124 grain. No need for the +p

I agree. My definition of +P for 9mm is my 45 ACP Super Carry Ultra.
