New Micro 9

I bought a Kimber Micro 9 for my daughter to celebrate her getting her Michigan CPL. She decided she wanted to get her license and took the steps to get it all on her own. This spring she went and took the class and a couple of months ago applied for her license, which she got a few weeks later.
She's 30(ish) and a couple of years ago, she went to a gun store and bought a 40 S&W caliber pistol. Now that she's shot the 40 for a while, we both kind of agreed that the 40 was a bit much for her. She wasn't going to have enough funding for a while so I told her I'd buy her a 9mm pistol. She chose the Kimber Micro 9 because of how it felt in her hand and how it looked. We took it on a couple range sessions to see how well she could shoot it. She shoots it quite well and absolutely loves it. We were having a couple issues with it and I hope to go to the forums to see if I can get some expert advice from the knowledgeable users that are on here.

Wink Hey Ya'll!!

Welcome to KT from Monroe, Georgia!!

Congrats on the Micro 9 for your daughter. You are a good dad!! I taught my daughter to shoot. She is very good (just like her brother), but she has never really gotten into it for recreational entertainment, hunting or self defense. Glad her husband is concerned with home defense.

Feel free to jump right in at any time. Please post pictures of your daughter's Micro 9 as well as a range report. We like that kind of stuff!!

Shoot straight and be safe!!
