Cool New Stainless Ultra Raptor II

Here I go again!! I got tired of looking at my son's Custom Raptor sitting in my safe. He's in Germany and I have all his guns. I just kept hearing voices in my head that said I needed a Raptor, also!!

Well, a trip to Franklin's Gun Shop in Athens, Georgia, a bit of haggling for price and a bit of required paperwork and I was the proud owner of a nice new Stainless Ultra Raptor II!!

It fits perfectly into my Blackhawk Model 28 Askins Compact Concealment holster. No holster shopping for this one!!!

Of course, I haven't had it to the range. Thus no range report yet. It's coming. I haven't even cleaned it yet!! I have sat with it while I watched television. I thoroughly enjoyed the crisp clean trigger as I took dry fire pot shots at bad guys on the tube!! (Take that ya filthy animals!!)

Of course, I do have the obligatory pictures. I couldn't leave ya'll hangin'!!

Nicely done Keith, she's a beauty. Don't forget to post pics of your range trip (someone here has taught us that!)

Someday I will get another Ultra. A Ultra Raptor would be really good.

Marshall....I don't post personal gun pictures on KT or any site, for any reason. Never have/never will. Taking IP risk is for those that choose to do so, I don't. If you have a problem with that, choose a orifice. End of subject.

Congratulations Keith, we all knew it was just a matter of time until you gave in and got one of your own.
