    Kimber Micro 9 or some other smallish 9mm?

    I'm a Glock guy. I own my Gen 4 G17 and others and I consider them my go-to handguns for HD.

    I'm also an ex-Kimber owner. I had a 1911 that worked fine for competition but had a really rough feed ramp. I'd also heard of Kimber's ups and downs as far as quality and I eventually got rid of it.

    My recent experiences with a Glock 42 and age-old experiences with an unreliable Colt Mustang, Walther PPK, and others make me virtually shun .380.

    The other day I was at Sportsman's Warehouse lusting after a Kimber Micro 9.

    I've read good reviews online about it, but I thought I'd put it to the opinion of the troops (here).

    Would you get one, or would you suggest some other smallish 9mm instead?

    Have you tried a shield?
    No experience with the micro9, but i would try to shoot a few different guns if possible.
    The micro 9 is smaller, and the shield is just too big to pocket carry imo, so it may not be an option.

    What are you wanting it for? I normally carry a g19 but in the last year a few M&P shield 9s have some how ended up living at my house (who can turn away ophans!). I've got a stock one, one with an apex trigger and one with a silencerco threaded barrel + TBRCi M&P comp. I've been highly impressed with the extended barrel one. It can be a bit of a transformer. Put a 7 rd mag in and it hides as well as any small 9mm. But put a mag in with a mag extension and you have a slim 10rd 9mm that is accurate to 25yds and still hides pretty well. I've really been enjoying it lately. Good capacity, good accuracy and slightly easier to conceal than a double stack. My next move is to combine the apex trigger and comp+threaded barrel shield.

    I'm sure you could do the same with a G43, overwatch precision trigger, threaded barrel and mag extensions.

    I'd look at the Shield and the G43, in that order.
