New Micro Owner in Western NC

Just bought my first Kimber. It's a Micro Carry Advocate. Actually its my first 380 acp also. Lots of S&W 9's and revolvers in my past. Looking forward to shooting this little gun.

Any recommendations on ammo brands that seem to work better than the others?

Welcome from Northern Illinois, and another Micro owner. Strip, clean and oil your new pistol. Check the manual for recommended break in cycle counts and ammo. I ran just about any FMJ thru mine with no problems and then switched over to my carry ammo, actually a local reloader. We also have a lot of folks here that run FA (see ammo sub-forum) with no problems.

Welcome from Michigan, congrats on the Micro. I run Hornady Custom XTP's in mine. They function fine and the XTP is a great performer for self defense.

Cool Hey Here!!

Welcome to the forum from beautiful downtown Monroe, Georgia!!!

Congrats on the new Micro. Little .380 pocket pistols seem to be the hot item this year. Seems like everybody makes one. The Kimber Micros seem to have a good following and a good reputation for their performance and reliability. Enjoy yours!! Be safe!!
