Good morning from Florida! I just purchased my first Kimber, a micro 9 Woodland night. I have several Colt 1911s and have had one since the late 1970s a I also have a Colt Mustang and Colt Government 380 but decided that I wanted to get into 9mm and still be able to pocket carry. When I saw the Kimber micro 9 it spoke to me, I just thought it was so much better looking than the Sig. I can't wait to get it to the range, I hope it shoots as good as it looks!
Anyway, thanks for letting me join in the forum.

Welcome to Kimber Talk!

We are always happy to get new members you are more than welcome. We like fresh opinions and information! As you can tell the requirements are not very restrictive. Chuck lets in most anybody heck I am proof of that. We like pictures of Guns and most anything related to them targets accessories the pictures are great for us members that don't read so good.

Welcome Ztug! I'm in Florida too and just purchased a Micro 9 (will pickup Thurs or Fri due to waiting period). Previously I owned a S&W Walther PPK, and a H&K P30. I LOVED my PPK but it just wasn't reliable. The Micro 9 just "spoke to me" as well. It reminds me of the PPK... but hoping for good reliability and looking forward to my carry permit. Feel free to Private Message me.
