Hello From Florida's Space Coast

Hi, All,

I stumbled on this forum researching problems with a new Kimber Micro 9. I like finding groups like this when I'm involved with a particular product because you just can't beat the knowledge spread around user groups or their generosity in sharing it.

Born in 1954, married to the same woman since 1980 (though if she finds out how much I've spent on guns that may change), two grown kids and three grand kids.

First career was Mechanized Infantry Officer. Great job until I got married and wife couldn't stand the healthcare system. Bounced around and wound up as a university professor. Stayed in the USAR and my swan song was invading Iraq in 2003, with the Marines no less.

Avid shooter. My first Kimber and my favorite CCW is a Pro Carry .45. The Army paid us something like $3.25/day for a year for "incidentals" while I was in Iraq and I used part of it to buy a 5" Eclipse .45. Bought a stainless Micro 9 about six months ago and then got suckered in when an all Matte Black Micro 9 winked at me from across the room and bought it also. Really, isn't the fastest reload just having two pistols?

Have already been posting on some feed issues with the M9s and had some good feedback. Looking forward to more.

Larry
