    Default Black Friday Deal at Bass Pro Shop

    Found this little beauty at Bass Pro for $499.00 and just couldn't pass it up. Kimber micro 9 - 9mm in stainless steel.

    Looks like it will be a great little pocket piece.
    Congratulations and enjoy!

    Yep. My plan is to either buy an ankle holster and use it for last chance or IWB as a backup. If you are in a fire fight and your primary fails, you have to have a back up. The quality and the price just made it right!

    Wow, a sub-$500 Kimber seems like a great deal! What's the magazine capacity? 9mm ammo has gotten so much better since I sold my Taurus 92.

    6 in the mag and 1 in the tube with mag that comes with it. However, since the mag that comes with it really isn't that great, I am buying the SIG SAUER 938 9mm 7-Round Magazine to use. It will fit this weapon and is a quality mag.

    Perfect timing. My wife's birthday and she wanted a .380. Picked up the sister to the 9mm that you bought. The guy said they sold their entire lot of 100 9mm pistols in the first hour!

    Headed to the range tomorrow with a couple hundred rounds of different types to break it in and see what it likes.

    She couldn't reliably pull back the slide on the Ruger LCP and thought the Sig P238 was too heavy. She really likes the feel and operation of the Kimber.

    That is outstanding! They only had 30 9mm and 50 .380's - I was #14 in line so I got the 9mm. I do hope your wife enjoy's her handgun. You're a good man!

    I'll take mine out this next week and run some rounds through it. I actually shot the .380

    Nice pick up! I ended up getting sick so that ended my hope to get a great deal yesterday on a new gun

    All that I can say about this pistol is WOW! Ran 200 WWB through it without a single hiccup and at 11yds it was dead-nuts on. I'm a lousy handgun shooter and this little pistol made me look like an expert. 10 times better than my LCP and more accurate than my P238 Sig. The wife was able to keep it mostly in the black and loved it. It's a keeper!
