The Kim­ber Mi­cro 9 Crim­son Carry not only looks good, it also backs it up in per­for­mance.

un mak­ers are turn­ing up the power level on pocket-sized pis­tols. And Kim­ber’s new Mi­cro 9, cham­bered in 9mm, looks to be one of the bet­ter guns of this new breed.

As long as there have been hand­guns, the pub­lic has craved mod­els that are eas­ily car­ried and con­cealed. In the midto late-1800s, de­fen­sive-minded cit­i­zens might have got­ten some de­gree of re­as­sur­ance from pur­chas­ing a Rem­ing­ton dou­ble der­ringer in .41 Rim­fire Short or a Smith & Wes­son No. 1 re­volver in .22 Short. In the early 1900s, the Colt Vest Pocket Pis­tol in .25 ACP might have been the choice for dis­creet carry. None of them was con­sid­ered a pow­er­house.

The Kim­ber Mi­cro 9 Crim­son Carry is an at­trac­tive com­pact pis­tol with a two-tone fin­ish.
