First range trip with new Ultra

Today was my first firing of the Ultra Raptor 9mm....I like this gun!! Only shot about 50 rounds of Blazer Brass without any issue. Was not the case for my wife, for some reason she could never hold it well enough to preclude the stove pipes and failures to feed. My guess is the grip is too large for her as she had no trouble with the M9.

A different story with FM 115 and 135 HP. About 30-40% would fail to chamber, same story with the M9 Raptor. These rounds have worked flawlessly in two Sigs, a G43 and a CZ P-01 so apparently the Kimbers have a tighter chamber.

The OEM sights were dead on at 33' and grouped extremely well for my limited talents. It was very bright sunlight so conditions were not optimum for the CT laser grips. Will wait for a darker day to try them.
God made man, Sam Colt made them equal.
