New Guy from SW Arkansas

Hi Everyone:
I have been lurking here for a while in order to learn and understand the Kimber Micro 9 and Micro .380 plaforms. I currently have 1 Micro 9 and 2 Micro .380's.. One is none and 2 is one, right? Anyway, I am very impressed with the quality and dependability of the Kimber line of firearms.

I am not new to guns having started deer hunting in 1969 at the age of 12, also two tours of active duty in the US Navy Seabees including a year in Vietnam, and 6 years in the Minnesota Army National Guard. I moved from Minnesota to Arkansas nearly 6 years ago and never looked back. Nice people, good winters and a strong belief in 2A! Americas only diamond mine just across the road doesn't hurt either, $10 a day and keep what you find. Some nice stones come out every once in a while.

Anyway- I hope to learn more about Kimbers and welcome all advice and if I can help someone just holler. If we can't help back and forth then what good are we?

Wink Hey Ya'll!!!

Welcome to Kimber Talk from Monroe, Georgia!!!

Hey congrats on the three Kimber Micros!! Now you have one for each hand, right?? Math and anatomy were never good subjects for me!! DUH!!

Could you post some pictures of your Micros? Would like to see range reports on them, too. We like that kind of stuff. It takes so little to humor us. And we are all about the humor!! Speaking of which, Georgia spent years apologizing for Jimmy Carter. Illinois has now taken the title of "Worst President Ever" from Jimmy. Way to go, Barack-O!! However, Arkansas still gets a dishonorable mention for providing us with the likes of Bill and Hillary Clinton (the REAL odd couple!). Ain't that a rogues gallery??

The diamond mine sounds cool. That would be fun to check out sometime!! Haven't been to Arkansas in a long time. Might be time for a road trip!!

BTW, thanks for you service to the country. And as I am compelled to with all Vietnam vets; I must say "WELCOME HOME!"

Please feel free to jump right in at any time. We'll all have a good time!! Shoot straight and be safe!!

Obama called me a CLINGER! Terrorists call me an INFIDEL!
Hillary calls me DEPLORABLE! Trump calls me an AMERICAN!!
