Goodbye to my UCII 45 ACP

Sorry to report that I have sold my Kimber Ultra Carry II 45ACP. Not because it's a bad or unwanted pistol, but because my arthritis just makes shooting a compact of that caliber a bit painful.

I do, however, still have my UCII 9mm.

I'm probably going to do the same thing with my UC II 45 for that exact same reason also.....

At 69, I can have issues with hard pounding hand guns too. But I'm not giving up my Ultra II. I use 185 grain rounds for both practice and carry. I actually prefer this combo over my Browning HPs with 124 grain rounds.
Tejun, give it a try before you sell.

Goodbye to my UCII 45 ACP

I feel the pain partner. My Ultra is fine as long as I'm not shooting it for hundreds of rounds at a pop. You can do like I do. Wear an ace bandage type wrap that is reusable. Like athletes were or a leather wrist band. Both work great for me.

Its my Raptor Pro that is rough on me. I'm considering selling it because it is so tight, its a biotch to rack.

Yeah, I'm thinking of selling my UC2 in .45 ACP and replacing it with one in 9X19mm. There seems to be a disagreement between my doctors on how much jolting my eye can take.

When the Gander Mountain shooting range re-opens (if it ever does), I'm going to put the .22LR conversion kit on it for practice.

I have two more exams due, which might be interrupted by cataract surgery. I still carry the UC2 as a .45, because I'm hoping in a defensive action I'll only fire a few rounds.

Then again, I'm more dangerous with a knife...

That can't be the only range near you that you can shoot at. I've got 4 of them near me and I live in the Chicago suburbs.

Oh, we had plenty of ranges--20 years ago.

Now the private clubs are a long distance away, and due to the road building projects in my area, the gravel pits are closed to shooters.

Gander Mountain was two miles from my house, and empty as a tomb during the day.

And this should make you laugh. While I am right handed I am "left eye dominant."

Guess which side the cataract is on?
