    I've not shot the Kimber but must admit the Sig P238 is pretty good for a moouse gun and I find myself carrying it more and more.

    The 9mm does not seem that much bigger though. Maybe a bit. I guess it depends on someone's build.

    ...Sorry. It's just not gonna happen; me and the LCP don't get along regardless of the trigger. The thing is just TOO small for my hands.

    Measurement wise, you are correct....but put both in your pocket and suddenly the 9mm counterpart feels HUGE. I have two friends with a P938 and they just do not pocket nearly as well as my P238.

    This is one of the reasons I have pretty much decided to not get the Micro 9 and just stay with the Kimber Micro .380, for the pocket. The other reason I probably won't get a Micro 9 is...Glock 43. My G43 is just an awesome, very concealable pistol any way I carry it, besides the pocket. I see no advantage to the Micro 9 over the G43.

    Put another 100 rounds through the Kimber Micro. She sure is a nice shooting little pistol. I am still surprised at the accuracy of this small gun.

    I'm gonna have to track you down and give that thing a try -- if you don't mind. Any particular ammo it prefers? If you don't mind me shooting it, that is ... :teehee:

    Of course you can shoot it! It hasn't choked on any ammo yet, I just feed it whatever 95-100 gr FMJ Academy has on sale. Since I retired a few years back, my days are pretty much mine to do as I like. So, after you have recovered a bit more, gimme a shout and we'll trot ourselves on down to the range and bus' some caps.

    Kk!I'll do it! I have an appointment Thursday and expect to get PT orders then. If I do, he'll let me start shooting .22s. The only problem I've had is some kinda nasty swelling in my throat (inside, like damn I can't breathe kinda swelling) but that has been better today, so I'm hoping I'm over that hump.

    Been walking since the day after surgery (except for that one day I couldn't breathe and got to go visit the nice doctor in ER) and been doing fine. It's my understanding that "weight bearing" exercises like walking help stimulate bone growth. I can't help but think that the light percussion of a .22 would simulate the same response. Keep your fingers crossed for me! I'm so outta practice you might actually out shoot me this time! :hey3:
