New from Central Maine

Hey everyone, found myself here after purchasing my first Kimber (albeit, not my first firearm by any means). I was (and still have) carrying a S&W Shield 9mm somewhat regularly, but fell in love with the Micro .380 Desert Night.

After cleaning/oiling and putting 75 rounds of Blazer Brass through it to get the hang of it, I'm absolutely in love. The trigger is LEAGUES better than the striker fired pistols I own. Carrying it in a Galco Stow-N-Go IWB holster with Hornady Critical Defense. I love this little guy so much I'm now on the hunt for a Ultra Carry II in .45.

Hope to be a somewhat regular contributor around here as my passion for Kimbers grows (and my wallet does the opposite)!

Welcome to the forum happy to hear you like your new Kimber. I have an Ultra Carry II in .45 acp. I absolutely love the Ultra it feels great in the hand and is accurate as you are. I am sure you will like the Ultra. I found a new one on gun broker a year ago or so with n/sights (blued). If you have any doubts about the Ultra, stick around there will be several enablers chiming in about the merits of buying an Ultra Carry II..
