New member saying hello

Hello, new member here, just ordered my first Kimber. I purchased the Cabelas Special Edition Micro 9 and am currently awaiting for it to arrive at the store so they can ship to me.

I am located in Long Island NY. Look forward to chatting with many of you regarding firearms.

Hello Joe, I have the Kimber Micro 9 CSE. I had some trouble out of the box. I had to bend the extractor a little. I have trouble shooting 115gr. bullets. But if I shoot 124gr. or higher it works like a charm. I do love this pistol. I have not hit the break in period of this gun which I think is 500 rounds. I am about 350 round through. The more I shoot this gun it seems to get better. I hope you have as much fun as I do with this gun.

Welcome to KT from St Lou.

You chose a good Kimber to start off with. The Micro 9 that I bought has over 1K rounds out of the barrel without a hiccup.

Good luck with your new shooter.
