Pulled the trigger

I went and did it this weekend. Ordered a SS Raptor Pro II. Now the wait. My receipt says "Up to three months" I hope not!

Great gun, but gunbroker.com is full of them, 9mm and .45.

As Gary said there are 41 of them listed on gunbroker right now. Your choice, SS or Matte Black, 9mm or .45, I hate waiting.

I agree with everyone else. Why would anyone wait three months, when you can have it as fast as 7 days or less. GunBroker has a butt load of them and several other "safe" online buying sites.

You may want to support your local gun shop, that's fine but they could find and buy it online and have shipped to them for less than you agreed to pay them and they make even more money.

Anyway congrats on a great pistol choice.

You will enjoy your Pro Raptor!

The Raptor is one of the best looking Kimbers. I love the Pro size.
