Almost Perfect Rage Run

Bought a "Micro Crimson Carry" for my wife and Just finished range day. After a good cleaning the night before, my wife shot a total of 150 rounds of assorted PMC, Aguila, Estate, Blazer, Winchester and finally Hornady SD ammo. Didn't have a single failure to chamber, FTF, FTE or stove pipe - only 2 failure to lock back at the last round in one mag. My wife loves it - she shoots it better than I do!

I noticed that this model, the Micro Crimson Carry is not on the Kimber web site or in their latest catalogue. I found it in a gun store in Austin. It has an aluminum frame with the laser grip and black sights. I too called Kimber about night sites and was told "maybe when production catches up with demand.

I had a SIG 238 and liked it, but didn't love it. I traded it for a 290, which I like better. For some reason, the Micro feels better in the hand - slightly rounded corners help. With some iffy reviews, I was hoping things would go well with my wife shooting it. Couldn't have been much better!

Congrats on the range success. There are several other Micro models stated to be released that do not appear on the website.

They are all pretty, but the Stainless Raptor Micro is still my fav.

I've got to agree with Gary, they're all great looking but the Stainless Raptor is the one I want.

I'm happy that the range session went well...
It's great when our better halves get into our passion of guns and shooting them...

P.S...
If I ever would by a .380 it would be the Micro Raptor or the Micro Carry..
Great looking Kimbers...IMO

Outstanding, and welcome to the forum.

I'm holding out for the Advocate (pic on the right above) and a black Raptor.

Yeah, I saw that on the website AFTER I bought the CDP. I don't want 2 Micros, and I don't sell or trade. I'll just have to get a full size Stainless Raptor.
