New Family Member - Stainless Ultra Carry 2 45ACP

Other than the less than stellar experience with my Micro 380 today, I had a fantastic trip firing my brand new Ultra Carry 45. I shot 50 rounds through the gun with no issues at all using 230 gr Remington FMJ ammo. Attached is the target with results from my first magazine.

This gun feels good, looks fantastic and is very accurate. Still working on my Shoot With Both Eyes Open technique

This is my first 45 and it will take me some time to get used to it. When going from the UC to my Micro 380 its like picking up and firing a BB gun

Sounds like a good range session overall. That UC should serve you well, with the Micro as your BUG.

Very nice!

Funny, I noticed that I tend to shoot my Ultra a couple inches higher than my Custom unless I stop and think about it. At SD distances, it's not really an issue, but it is annoying. Have you noticed this at all with your Ultra?

BTW: Which range were you at?

This was my first outing with the Ultra. I tend to shoot my Micros about an inch low and left when I aim with my dominant eye. If I get my eyes dialed in for shooting with both open, I'm dead on. Not sure why that is, haven't studied it enough yet. With the UC, I was getting nice groups at 7 yds shooting both eyes open.

The range was Liberty Armory on Bellaire Blvd in Houston. Its about 5 min from my office. Nice place. I can make reservations but it usually not needed at the times I go.

I guess I am to old I can't get used to shooting with both eyes open.

Good shooting with the Ultra, my Ultra's all shoot a little different and some more accurate than others.

Nice family you can definitely see the family resemblance! I am picking up my
Ultra Carry II today at 1:18:54 pm. Mine is the black Kim Pro finish. Looking forward to shooting it. 2sharp2 really likes his Ultras in fact seems everyone on this forum has good things to say about the Ultra models!
Clean Lube and shoot!

I never knew there was a range in that part of Houston. I always figured Top Gun or Bailey's were the closest around there.
