I took my new Kimber 380 to the range yesterday. With the help of one of my friends who brought along another box of 380, we were able to put about 115 rounds through the pistol. As we all know, it's tough finding 380. It is a very soft shooting pistol. Unlike the S&W Bodyguard 380 that I had for three years (and which it replaced), this pistol is actually very pleasant to shoot. It's almost hard to believe, but this mouse-gun is actually fun to shoot. This is a 380 that I think even my wife would enjoy shooting. The accuracy is excellent, particularly compared to the Bodyguard. The SAO trigger is right around 7 pounds, and is very crisp. The 3 dot sights are impressive. I see no need to replace them with night sights at this time. I was consistently shooting 4" groups at about 20 to 30 feet. That's not too bad for a pocket pistol and me. And it's far better than anything I ever shot with the S&W. My friend Dale was tightening up his group to around 3". The grips are of a softer synthetic feeling material and well checkered. This combined with the aggressive checkering on the back and front strap give you a lot to hang on to even though there is no pinky extension on the grip or magazine. I had one FTF on the first magazine. I figure that's not unusual straight out of the box. Then there were two failures to go back into battery using the cheap stuff. Considering the inconsistencies of where the empties were being thrown, those may have been light loads. Some of the loads were light enough that if felt like I could time the cycling of the slide. While the slide is not heavy, it is definitely more substantial than most pocket 380's. When I loaded up a box of Hornady Critical Defense, it ran flawlessly. The gun really soaks up the extra pop of the hot loads. I'm curious now to get a box or two of Buffalo Bore or similar +P ammo to see how this pistol handles it. Considering how it performed yesterday, I expect it will handle it quite well.
