Hello from Central Iowa

I just wanted to drop in and say hi from Central Iowa. I picked up my first gun and it was a Two Tone Micro 9 based on a recommendation from my brother who has a Micro CDP .380. I shot that and a Glock 43 and his wife's Sig P238 and decided I liked the feel of the Kimbers better than the Glock. I was also keen to have the external manual safety.

I took it out a few days later with my brother to make sure everything worked like it should and was very pleased. I would say the recoil was very similar to his Glock 27 (.40 cal). Very manageable even with my crappy (at the time) grip.

Then as luck would have it, I was able to take advantage of the cyber Monday deal thru Kimber and picked up 2-7 round extended mags.

Needless to say I was able to represent the Kimber community reasonably well at my CCW class. I was shooting Hornady Critical Defense 115gr to make sure the gun liked that load. And apparently since if there aren't any pics it didn't happen then here is the proof.
