Hello from San Antonio

Hi All,

Just joined from the San Antonio area - purchased my first Kimber as a Mother's Day gift for my wife today. I'm interested in learning more about the brand and pleased with the quality of the weapon thus far (Micro 9).

Hope you all have a great weekend and Happy Mother's Day tomorrow.

-D

Welcome from western NY.
Spent time in San Antonio... Lackland AFB - '64.
Took my wife there a few years ago. She loved the River Walk.

I work on the Riverwalk, I like the area a lot. We've been here a little over a year.

Welcome to the site from Tennessee.
Before your range trip, clean and lube the new Micro, use extra lube, run it wet, rack the slide a couple hundred times, you'll be good to go. Use good FMJ ammo.

Thanks for the tips! It looks like from reading it will accept some of my sig magazines as well, so that's good news. Will be nice to have a few spares for the first trip, will help the Mrs to get some magazine swap practice.

Welcome from PA! I adore San Antonio, great city.

My wife got a Micro 9 for her birthday, after shooting my Pro Carry II. I bought one a month later for myself.
