Range report with new Raptor ll

Just returned from the range with my new Raptor ll.
50 rounds each of Magtech, Fiocchi and Sellier & Bellot. All 230 gr.
This is a nice pistol. Had a last round hang up with a Wilson mag. No issues with the Kimber mag.
I expected a beating with the 3” barrel, but I could have put another 150 rounds down range with no problem.
Picture of target is at 12 yards with a few Mags. Tried to keep groups.
My feelings about Kimber have done a 360 since owning the Solo.
A Micro 380, now the Raptor- what’s next

By the look of the target your new shooter did quite well right out of the case. Congrats and I'm glad that you gave Kimber another chance after having an issue with your first. Many people would have bad mouthed the brand and never would have bought another.

BTW.....some good shooting there...

That gun can't shoot worth a darn. If I were you I'd get rid of it. Tell you what, I'll give you $500 so you'll have some Christmas money. I know, I know, .. you don't have to thank me.

Enjoy your Raptor.
