Greetings from South Carolina

Joined the forum back in January and have done a lot of reading. Guess it's time I introduced myself.

I own a couple Kimbers, a Custom II in .45 and a Micro 9. Really like them both. Have a variety of firearms but never considered Kimber until talking with my son-in-law who's a real Kimber lover. Both my Kimbers run perfectly and are way more accurate than me. The Micro 9 is my new "carry gun". Carried a Ruger SR9C for years but I got where is was difficult to rack the slide with my arthritic hands (I'm old). The Micro 9 is perfect for me and I can shoot it pretty good.

Nice talkin' to ya.

Welcome from another Middle Tennessean, I live almost in the Middle. As we get older our choice of pistols change somewhat. I have a Colt 45 which was easy to rack as a young man when I bought it. It takes a little now when I want to shoot it. Congrats on your new pistol!!
