Hello All,

I’m new to the forum and new to Kimber.
I have a Micro 9 and have a question about something. The other day I got my Micro 9 out and took the magazine out and tried to rack the slide but I forgot I had the safety on. As we all know, you cannot rack the slide with the safety on and the hammer down. My question is, could this have damaged some of the internals? Like the seer? Or the safety? Or the hammer?
Why did I have the safety on you ask? Just a force of habit.

That's how I carry :
Cocked & locked No round in chamber
Since I can rack and load with safety ON

Only when the pistol is already cocked. You cannot rack it with the safety on and the hammer down.
