Pro Raptor Range Report

Yes, another 'Man I love my Raptor' post! Last night the Mrs. and I went to the range after work, she shot her new Micro Carry some more and I ran my Pro Raptor. This is a drill I do to prepare for a match, which is this Sunday. I place an IDPA target at 30 feet, load a magazine with 4 rounds and put it on my belt. Then I load a magazine with 6 rounds and charge the pistol with it. Then I deploy and fire fives rounds, first shot head, then body, head, body, head. Then a Tac Reload, and fire the remaining five rounds in the opposite order, first shot body, then head, body, head, body. Reload, reset and repeat. I do this five times, going as fast as I can and make good hits. This drill isn't about speed only, at least for me. It helps me maintain composure in a match and not slip into rattle-battle mode. I don't scream thru it, but I do roll along at a pretty good pace. As always, practice or match, my Pro Raptor performs! I will post a pic of it next!

Thanks Keith! She ain't much to look at, pretty worn finish. I am setting up my 5" Kimber for IDPA, and will have my Raptor cerakoted. But I love how it functions and feels.
