New Micro Carry

Yesterday I purchased the black version of the micro. I have a new Solo DC and this is the smaller twin of the Solo. The Solo works perfectly, at least with HST ammo, and I was hoping that the micro would also do better than many of the micros that I have heard about on this forum.

I took the micro to the range today after thoroughly cleaning and lubing it. I shot 100 rounds including hydra shoks, golden sabers, Barnes TAC-XPD, and buffalo bore hardcast +p. Everything worked perfectly. No failures of any kind. The other good news was the accuracy. I was able to shoot 1 inch groups at 15 yards. Double taps also fed perfectly.

I'm expecting a shipment from Midway tomorrow with 100 rounds of HST (which doesn't seem to be as impressive in .380 as it is in 9mm) and 100 rounds of standard pressure buffalo bore hardcast. I'll be shooting all of that soon and hope to have a carry ammo option soon after.

Sounds like a pretty good day,congrats!Have you tried buying ammo from Freedom Munitions?Many of the members here use it.You can buy in bulk or by the box at significant savings.Either brand new or remanufactured ammo,and it all works well.If you're going to the range to practice and plan on burning up a lot of ammo they're well worth a look.

Check out the Hornady Custom XTP defence rounds. Probably one of the best deepest penetrating rounds for defence in the 380. Congrats on the Micro, I have the same plain black model with over 500 rounds through it. Runs fine.
