Post I'm just...so damn proud. *sniff*
So after only 8 years of the form sitting on the table, the good Q finally submitted her application to get her LTCF.

But more than that, we both went to the Eagle Arms show in Bloom.. She tried on just about every subcompact pistol for size.. (She's got long but narrow fingers, so things like a LC9 just don't work well.)

I gotta say, the woman has taste. She started off with a Bersa Thunder 380. Fit her hand well, blah blah, but she was just "meh". Guy hands her a Sig 938, she REALLY likes that one. Figures. Then she spots the "one".. A Kimber Micro9 in stainless, with rosewood Crimson Trace grips and a fiber optic front sight. Everything about it, she likes. The safety was easy for her to actuate, the trigger pull was nice, fit her hand well, you name it.

Looks like Kimber made a run of them all equipped like this, and EuroOptic has a few in stock for a nice price, so as soon as I can get the time, I'm gonna run up there and snag it. Awww, his & hers Kimbers! :jerkoff: We'll be breaking it in out behind the house, and my coworker is also a NRA certified instructor, so she'll be HIS headache... But honestly, she's a good shot, and does pay attention, so I'm sure she'll do well. I'm just glad to see (or worried?) that she's moving up from :fencing: to :fred:

Good choice! Had I not already bought my P938 I’d buy the Kimber Micro 9 for sure. I also looked at one at EuroOptic, I forget exactly which finish it was. It is very similar to my Sig. I also thought their price was pretty good.

My Mrs just renewed her license for the first time recently.

Just over $600, I'm pretty impressed.
