Happiness Prevails

Okay, went to our local range today only to find it packed. It's like that when it rains here, and it has rained for a couple of days. Anyway, we drove over to another indoor range across the border in Washington knowing they would be packed too, as it's in a much bigger city. That was OK, since they are the largest stocking Kimber dealer in our area. We fondled several, an Eclipse, an Aegis, a Super Carry and a Master Carry (both Pro's) and a CDP Pro. The CDP is tied with the Tactical Pro for the first slot on my short list! With all this handling going on, we still didn't touch them all! It was awesome!!!

But the best part is...
We have been looking since mid-January for a Factory Extended Magazine or two for my wife's new Micro Carry CDP. I have called every stocking dealer in the northwest that I could find a number on, and searched the internet with no luck. So as we're feeling up all these sweet gats, I ask the sales guy if they have any of these ever elusive magazines. He thought they had got some in but they go fast. And there it was, shining like diamond, the sole survivor of the mad rush for the Extended Magazine. It was in my hands in the blink of an eye! The sales guy said the compute showed two, and I let him know I'd take them both! He looked in the back and in a few moments we were on the drive home with these sweet little jewels!!!

That's so funny. My LGS has extended mags for the Micro, but no Micros. Go figure.

Great news, it seems the factory is catching up with demand.

I must admit the name of your thread is sadly misleading. For a shining moment there I thought Obama resigned...

I was at SureShot range here in Havelock, I think half of the Marines from Cherry Point decided it was a great day for shooting! Still, had a blast.

I still wonder if they were holding some back in case they release the Micro Advocate...what I read on that said it would come with the Extended Mag. They had all four existing variants of the Micro represented, and three variants of the Solo. If they'd had a Micro Raptor, this post would read a little different!!!

Jeff, Yes, ammo extra...dang it!!!

Tourist, sorry, I didn't mean to present false hopes. Your reply has the makings for some sweet dreams this night!!!

I think this is something manufactures are starting to do now. I recently bought a Sig P938 and it came with an extended magazine from the factory. I later read that this is going to be standard practice.
