Went to the range this morning, took my Micro 380 Advocate, Sapphire UC2 9mm, and rented a Sig P938. First up:
The Sig: had to use their ammo on a rental, Atlanta Ammo 115 gr. Shot 50 rounds, no failures, I thought the sights were a touch high, but adjusted and was more on target. It's got a bit more recoil than the Micro 380 and the Sig P238. But overall, it felt good in my hand, had a good weight to it, and was fairly accurate.
Micro 380: Blazer Brass 95 gr. ammo. Used one 7 round mag.
1st mag, failure to fire on #7, bullet was angled up, dropped mag to release bullet.
2nd mag: only loaded with 6 this time, failure to battery on #5
3rd mag: also 6 rounds, failure to fire on last round. At this point, I did not want to shoot the micro any longer, totally disappointed and packed it away. Not happy with the failures, but it's right on target when it's not misbehaving!
UC2: Blazer Brass 124 gr. What can I say....it's awesome. I love this pistol. 50 rounds, great accuracy, no failures. This is a gun that I know I can depend on.
At this point, I feel that I need to give up hoping the micro can be used as an EDC. The UC2 is a little bigger than I would like for EDC but it is dependable. Might consider buying the Sig P938 since it is reliable, but it's not so pretty to look at. Also, probably because of the size difference I feel that I can control the small recoil on the UC2 better than I could with the Sig. Totally not counting the Micro out though, just going to keep cleaning it, taking it to the range, and trying out different ammo. If it continues to perform the way it did today, it will be shame but it will might just end up being a paper weight!
Sorry, no target photos, I never remember to do that!
