Heading to the range today after not shooting a single round in nearly 4 weeks, I have the range bag loaded up with lots of ammo and the Ultra Raptor, Ultra CDP, Ultra Aegis and Sig P938

4 WEEKS!! That's some serious withdrawal there. I'd be bouncing off the walls if I can't shoot at least once a week.

OMG, and I though I was doing bad when I'd go 3 weeks without hitting the range. The only thing that saves me is my laserlyte trainer.......... and bourbon.

I've been so busy at work, which is good and had trips to Las Vegas, NYC, Tucson, San Diego and San Fran since January 1st.

Anyway, still breaking in the CDP II, about 500 rounds through it without any issues. I found these grips on eBay and really like them over the $3 OEM grips

This was at 25 feet, just single shots to warm up.

Then on to the Ultra Raptor, while I like this gun I never carry it. It's on my nightstand, the grips are too thick for me to feel 100% comfortable that it won't print and I like the grips to much to change them. I keep 147 grain HST in it. It's easy to shoot, I like the large safeties and follow up shots ares easy as it has minimal recoil. Target was at 30 ft, double taps

My baby, the Ultra Aegis, 5,600 rounds by my count and never a failure. It's my daily carry and I trust her with my life. 35 feet, triple taps. I think it's the prettiest gun also.

I have to say, the Sig P938 is dead ugly, but it goes bang everytime... I've shot all makes and brands of self defense ammo (currently carry 124 grain Federal Hydra_Shok) and it has never failed to fire, cycle or eject. I keep it in the glovebox of my car "just in case" I run out without the "Aegis".

I really only practice with this up to 20 ft, but lots of off hand, single hand and waist high firing. Today from 15 ft to end the day

Nice shooting azguy, I also like the new grips you have on the CDP.

Thanks, here's a couple more. You'd think Kimber would at least use these grips on the CDP's and not the no-name, no brand cheapo grips. If you recall, I had some DW grips on it earlier. Stock grips is also pictured
