Greetings from Iowa

Just joined last night since I picked up my first Kimber a few days ago.

Blindly ordered a Micro 9 without ever holding one. Just found a style I don't have, a brand I don't own, I price I negotiated unexpectedly, and a thirst for discovery that just couldn't be cured with pictures.

This one came with Crimson Trace grips. I have CT grips on another gun so this wasn't that big of a deal to have but for the deal I feel I got, why not, right?

I have yet to fire it. Thinking about going to the range today but no definite plans.

As far as fit and finish-look and feel-and just the mechanical function is so awesome. I'm definitely becoming a Kimber fan. I have my eyes on two others (along with several other guns) but for now I'm content with my new micro 9.

Here's some pics fresh off the press....erm, I mean digital phone camera thingy.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois Bish and congratulations on the new Micro 9. As 2sharp2 advised, give it a good cleaning and lube before making that first range trip.
