New Kimber Owner..almost

Hi Gang, I am new to the Kimber, full disclosure I love S&W. I recently put a Advocate in my hand and fell in love. I am sure the quality is good but most friends say why would you spend that kind of money on a .380? It fits my hand!! I think you have to like the feel or you wont shoot it. ie my Bodyguard. Be a few weeks before it comes in. Looking forward to gaining knowledge here. Thanks

Welcome from Big Sky. Some advice about your Micro; don't buy any truncated cone target rounds unless you polish the feed ramp first. The wife's Belair had an FTF rate of about 30% with WWB target. Another member had similar results. Use round nose instead. Congrats on your new pistol is a beaut.
PS - like my Smiths also. M&P 9mm Pro Series, M&P 9C FDE

Welcome, Robin, you made a wise choice. Actually you had no choice; once one handles a Kimber Micro, they own you! That happened to me. I have the Bel Air model. I love the little guy. It was my first 380acp. So a very new experience for me.

Share some photos and report your first range experience.
