Ultra Carry II Range report.

We to the range on 9/2:
Outdoor range. Weather started at 65f (0830) got up to 84f by noon. Sunny, with a slight breeze.
Paper targets ranging from 7-20 yards.
Ran a bunch of different ammo. Winchester 230 grain wad cutter, Winchester 230 grain FMJ round nose, and Remington Golden Saber 230 grain hollow point (Carry ammo).
No issues with feed, cycling, or anything else. Everything ran as advertised.
This is my EDC and I am really enjoying shooting it. the only complaint I have is that it seems to shoot VERY accurately in my buddies hand compared to mine. I am sure that is an issues with the gun and NOT me, right??

Sounds like you had a good day. Those Ultra's are fun to shoot, and great for carry.

Thanks all. I really am enjoying this gun. My last EDC was a Glock 26. I shot it again this weekend for the first time in about 6 months. I don't particularly enjoy shooting the 26, but I always seem to shoot it well.

Jflytle, you are right, this Ultra makes for a nice EDC. I am looking at a nicer belly band now. The Galco I have is about worn out.
