New to forum

Hello
I have just joined the forum
I am going to purchase a Kimber handgun
I like the micro 9 and was wondering about the recoil it has being a smaller handgun
I also like the micro 380
Any comments would be greatly appreciated

I find the Micro 9 to be snappy but not difficult to control. I don't think much about it at all. The .380 is fairly easy in terms of recoil. I had both, but chose to keep the 9mm because size was fairly similar and the 9mm is a better defensive round.

I have a M&P 9mm shield and from what I have read about the Kimber their both pretty close to the same size and I have no recoil issues with the shield

Jack, welcome aboard from Oregun.

If I were you and were considering either the Micro in .380 or the Micro 9, it's a no-brainer....go for the Micro 9! About the same size, but the nine has much better ballistics for the reasons we carry in the first place.

I've got a Micro 9 and also a Sig P938, and honestly, the recoil in either/both is not an issue at all.

Get a Micro 9 and carry with confidence.

Welcome from So.Cal. You will like either Kimber you use. I like .45's mostly!
