New Shield outing

Went to the range today with my new 9mm Shield.
It did everything a new firearm should do. Go BANG when you pull the trigger.
Just perfect with about 200 rounds of various ammo.

I also fired my pretty new Kimber Micro9. Third time out, continuing to have issues. Back to Kimber it goes. Hopefully it'll work like a Shield when it gets back.

"KIMBER" Wayyyy over rated, wayyyyy over priced.
Trade it in for another M&P, you`ll be glad you did.

I`m guessing you already figured that out after seeing the M&P was flawless, huh.

A friends daughter just bought a Kimber Micro 380 in Amethyst color. Pretty little gun. She paid over $900 for it. She went with her dad and brother to the range and fortunately didn't have any issues.

$900 mouse guns SHOULDN`T be having any problems at all.
Sorry, just my own personal opinion.

Kimber's are known for needing expensive ammo to run right. If you can afford one, you can afford to give it a steady diet of hollow points only. Me, I'd rather have 2 firearms for the cost of one Kimber.
