Howdy from central Texas! guy to Kimber; but have had my CHL/LTC since we moved to Texas in '08. Have been a SIG guy for much of that time; but have also carried Glocks, Kahr, Ruger, Taurus(and most recently added a Smith and Wesson Victory 22lr to the mix). My "plan" was to go minimalist with my handgun collection, having recently sold quite a few SIGs and a collectible Browning Nomad.

All was going according to plan...UNTIL I spotted a stainless Micro 9 at the local range. As I explained in the "Micro" minimalist approach has been temporarily sidetracked with the addition of Mic9 !!!

I look forward to chatting with you folks as I begin my Kimber journey!!!
Adios, Rick

I love my Micro 9 (two tone)...Waiting anxiously for Hogue or Pearce or someone to make the nice wraparound grips like Sig has on their P938.

And the Sig extended 7 round mag for the P938 can be very easily "modified" to fit the Kimber Micro 9...I did three of them based on the very easy and minimalist modification needed from several posts in this forum...

Happy Kimber time...
