Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois DaveJTR. Nice first post, I enjoyed watching your review of the Sig P238 and Kimber Micro Carry.

Welcome from Southeast Michigan. I am sure you are going to enjoy your Micro Carry. Love mine. It is a great gun. I have a 938 and I agree, the only thing that would make the Micro perfect would be night sights.

Interesting video comparison of two very similar guns produced by two of the best manufacturers in the business. I am a recent owner of a Micro. I really prefer the overall look of the Kimber model, but that is just personal taste and opinion.

Dave, welcome to the site from Tennessee! Good video. I don't own either pistol. But would probably lean toward buying the Micro because I like the way it looks. The Sig is a fine .380 and a lot of guys here own one.

Exclamation Wow!!

Welcome to Kimber Talk!

You really should have shown checking and clearing those weapons on the video before starting into your comparison. There was a loaded magazine in the Sig P238! If you had both hands available, a small error could have easily made this your LAST table top video.

I highly suggest that you find a way to have a device hold your smart-phone (Perhaps tuck the phone into a headband and the camera will pick up whatever you are looking at.) and leave your hands free to be used in handling and demonstrating the features of the firearms. In addition, I believe that you should re-make your video and include showing that the firearms are clear and safe prior to any manipulation of the firearms. When the re-do is complete, swap it out with the original. People NEED to be shown correct procedures with regard to gun safety!!!

Don't mean to be hard on you, Dave. But when it comes to firearm safety, there can be no room for error!!! Please re-make your video and swap it out. The printed disclaimer was not sufficient enough! Pictures stick in the brain far longer than a printed statement, which might even be ignored all together. Thanks!!

Other than that, it was a good comparison video. A pretty good first effort!!
