This is a first!

I have never posted on any forum model specific anything since becoming a member. I apologize for my lack of forum etiquette!
That being said this is about my newly purchased Ultra Carry II.
I went to my FFL today and did the required paperwork for ownership of a firearm in Commiefornia of which I am now some what embarrassed to admit I am a native of. Cannot believe what this state has evolved into!
Sorry for that rant. Back to the subject of the Ultra Carry II. I was allowed to hold it for a moment before it was escorted back to solitary. I took the opportunity to dry fire it just once. I really think I am going to love this Ultra!! The trigger felt really crisp and clean and the gun fit nicely in my hand. I will still be putting on a one piece magwell and some magwell cut grips along with an ambi safety. I am not going to make any changes to the trigger until I have given this trigger a fair shake! I bought the Kimber premium trigger to install originally. I may put it in my TRP because the trigger in that is short for my finger reach. The extra length will help I think. I am looking so forward to taking this Ultra to the range!

P.S.
I will be picking up my Ultra no sooner than 11/04/2016 1:18:54 PM. I just love the that time stamp with the seconds. Lord knows what carnage I could cause if I were to pick it up 2 or 3 sconds before the exact time!

I can't imagine going through all of that. Hopefully the time flies by for you. Congratulations on your new Kimber!

Talking

It is not so bad. For me it is like knowing your getting that brand new bicycle for your birthday or Christmas that you were allowed to pick out but you do not get to ride it or play with it until your actual birthday or December 25. If that makes any sense. On the other hand trying to make sense of CA's. gun laws will land you in a room with rubber walls so I do not spend much time thinking about it. My glass is always half full not half empty. Besides in a few days I will have my 4th Kimber. I feel a family photo happening real soon.The holidays are right around the corner you know!

The computer would deny the transfer until AFTER the exact time. What's worse is if you go out and buy another gun, and then try to DROS it ten seconds before your thirty days is up. Not only will you be denied, but the attempt will reset your clock for another thirty days.

Good on ya for the purchase of your new toy.

Congratulations on your Ultra Carry II. It is kinda odd that you have to wait to the second before picking up your new gun.

A lot of CA FFL's will make people wait an extra day. Mainly because people show up early (hours, minutes) then throw a fit because they can't get their gun. If you think all the crazy laws are tough on CA gun owners, try being a FFL in this wacky state.

Most of the FFL's that I've dealt with in Illinois will ask you to wait until the clock on their wall agrees with the time on the paperwork. I've never had a problem with it, they have a livelihood and license to protect and I figure they get enough grief from the ATF.

It is so frustrating here in Indiana, if you have a concealed carry permit.
If you find a pistol you like at your local gunshop, you have to go to the trouble of reaching into you billfold, pulling out the money, along with your CCP and walk out the door with the pistol. I can fill out all the paperwork no problem but it's producing that CCP I carry in my pocket that is so taxing.

Sometimes Indiana ain't so bad!!!!!!
