Kimber Solo 9mm Subcompact Accuracy

The accuracy of my new Kimber Solo 9mm Subcompact has been in doubt for me. I paid $700.00 for it, and the gun is so nice looking that I have become obsessed with learning how to shoot it. My previous trip to the range was a disappointment because I had holes all over the target. I had to go to a large target just to find out where my shots were hitting.

Well, I am now smiling. I think I am starting to learn how to shoot this little pistol.  I am starting to get 6″ to 8″ groups at 15 yards. Considering that data indicates that most self defense scenarios take place within about 7 yards or less, my group size should be about 3″ to 4″ at 7 yards. I feel that is adquate, but I’m looking forward to more progress in tightening up my groups.

Why this range trip is important to me is that now I can see the potential accuracy of the Kimber Solo. The pistol has the quality and accuracy built in. All I need to do is learn the basics and practice, practice, and practice.

These targets were shot using Golden Saber +P 124 grain JHP and Sellier & Bellot 124 Grain FMJ ammunition. I also shot 50 rounds of Federal HyShok 115 grain Ammo. with no problems at all.
