I have a Kimber Micro that a local smith was able to fix even though Kimber wasn't (after 3 visits to Yonkers!). But sad to say, I've lost faith in the pretty little gun and don't see re-bonding until its seen some more flawless range visits. But I really prefer a pocket pistol on some occasions when my edc is just too much to conceal or I'm just stepping over to the grocery store to grab some bread. I've read quite a few glowing reviews for the LPC (and 2) and thought I'd give it a shot At less that $300, seemed like not too much of a gamble. I took it to the pit for the first time today. It went through the first 2 magazines flawlessly and was pretty accurate for such a short barrel. Not too surprising as the Micro was a little tack driver too. ...then I got an FTE - no biggie, but after clearing the gun and reloading, no click or bang. I checked that the slide was fully forward and it was. I ejected the round and chambered another, same thing - no click, no bang. Hmmm. I field stripped it and best I could tell, all looked fine. I found that pointing the gun straight ahead and dry firing, the trigger goes all the way back without releasing the hammer, but if I point the gun straight up it will release the hammer. Something must have broke or came loose. Another thing, and I'm pretty sure I'm not imagining it - dry firing many times prior to taking it for a spin and though the first few mags, I didn't make any special "focus" or anything, just point and shoot normally...after it broke though, the trigger safety seems rather demanding on finger placement. I really have to concentrate on squaring my finger to the trigger face to get it to release - pretty sure it was more forgiving prior to the issue. My new gun is sitting on a shelf at the gun smith but I'm not too put off by it. The guy will make it flawless at an ok cost.
