Smile Just saying Hi!

Hi Everyone!!
I am new to the forum. Hubby and I are both retired and living the dream in Kentucky. I purchased the Micro 380 about a month ago after having the SW Bodyguard. I like this one a lot more! The sight is great and easy to hit the mark. Having a little problem with jamming with FMJ, but it might need to be oiled more. Going to try that and go from there. It's not from limp wrist. My husband was a police officer and firearm trainer so he doesn't let me get away with holding it wrong (lol).
Anyway, I've already gotten some good info on this site, so happy I know where I can go for any future help, if needed.

Welcome to the forum from Northeast, Pa. I would try cleaning,lube and racking the slide a bunch of times (100). If that doesn’t work send it back to Kimber.

Welcome! Hubby and I are retired in Texas, retirement is nice, huh? I have a Micro .380 and have had no issues with it. Only about 200 rounds so far tho. Lately, hubby and I have been running Blackhills HoneyBadger 60 gr thru it, we like that ammo. I also have a Shield EZ .380 and with WWB, have had lots of stovepipes of last live round. No problems when I started using the Blackhills HoneyBadger in it. Just a suggestion before calling Kimber

Howdy, sometimes other issues are the feed ramp or recoil spring.
