Hello from NC

23 year LEO. Current duty is a G19. Prior was a Sig P229 9mm. Was a decent weapon but we went to another model that had loads of issues so we changed camps to the big G.

I have been wanting a great little concealable 9mm since I get as much 9mm as I can want or stand....LOL! So I ran across the Kimber Micro 9 platform and loved the looks and while some of the reviews were less than favorable I saw one by a YT'er called GY6 and his torture test somewhat of a KM9. I was rather impressed and the fact it is American made also makes one smile.

So that lead to the GB purchase of a KM9 Eclipse. So far I have only shot two quick mags through the pistol. The very first shot that cycled jammed and after clearing and resetting it......no jams. But that is only with 15 rounds. I really have not had the time to cycle a few boxes through the pistol to see how it will do overall.

So with that said......glad to be hear to get some feedback from others who own this little pistol.
