I'll pass and stick with my LCP...
This is a discussion on Kimber Micro CDP: .380 within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I'll pass and stick with my LCP......
It looks just like my wife's SIG P238, or a Colt Mustang. I wonder what makes it worth twice the price?

Wow - $1,400 for a .380? Going to be interesting to see how many of these they can sell. I do have to say I'm rather pleased to see a Mustang "style" pistol come with an ambi safety. However, I can't see plunking down 1,400 bucks!!

Instead of too little too late, Kimber has gone too much too late.
Why would you pay that much for a .380? And as a person who carries a .380 daily, as long as I'm going with the less potent compromised round, I want it to easily fit in my pocket and not be single action in my pocket.
I don't carry a gun to look for or start a fight. I carry one to finish a fight I never wanted to be in.

Think they'll take a walther PPK/s in trade?
Not overpriced, ridiculously priced, under-powered, non-tested (give it a year)...you'd have to be crazy to buy that thing right now.
I'd wait a year...

If I were a blond, I'd be shrugging my shoulders, and I'm a Kimber master dealer. I'm sure someone here on DC will be the first to give us a range report.

someone will buy one as a bug to their Rohrbaugh 9mm which is another firearm story of "a fool and his money are soon parted".

You can get a full size 1911 for that price & better quality. My wife wouldn't carry it.

Looks like the Sig 238 to me. Just cost more. No thanks.
