New Kimber owner from Alabama!

Hello to everyone! I have for some time wanted to purchase a Micro 9 or Micro 380 to pocket carry and finally decided to start the new year off right

Welcome from eastern North Carolina! Have that exact same Micro 9. Clean it very well and oil it up before heading to the range. Use 124gr round nose for its break-in and you should be great! Mine has become my EDC. By the way, as self defense rounds, they don't like Hornady Critical Defense.

I actually have the 380 and did give it a good cleaning and lubed up with SLIP2000. Went to the range yesterday and used 100 rounds of Blazer brass ammo with "0" problems. I was very impressed with its accuracy, took a little time to figure out the best grip and figure position. This was the last magazine from 7 yards

This is my first time dabbling into micro .380 pistols. I have read that they can be picky with ammo, ant suggestions on what to try would be helpful

Welcome to the site from Tennessee. Congrats on the new Micro 380.

Ammo can be kind of trial and error, what works for some may not work for you. Others will offer suggestions.
