New to kimber

Hey guys, just got a new Micro 9 for Christmas. I haven't shot it yet but planning a trip to the range soon. I've been around guns my entire 47 year life but have never shot a Kimber. I plan on changing that soon. I really like the feel of this gun and I think it'll be a great addition to my CC collection. I am however having a small problem with the mag as I'll discuss in another thread. Anyway thanks for having me here.

Rusty, welcome to the site from Tennessee. Before your range visit be sure to clean, lube and use good heavy grained ammo.
Congrats on the Micro 9.

I always clean n lube everything as soon as I get it home but why heavy grain? Break in? Or do micro's just like heavy bullets? I reload so this is really good info to have. I don't load 9mm because they are so cheap to buy but this could possibly change things.
