I just joined the Raptor club!

My car deposit served me well today at the gun show. I bought a Stainless Raptor II. Sorry Tinman, the price wasn't as low as you're looking for, but it was good enough to come home with me.

I also found an awesome buy at the book table. I got the 2009 printing of Bayonets of the World for only $150! That's a lot for a book, but the price on Amazon is over $330! The book is in almost new condition. It just has marks on the cover from being handled. The pages are perfect. The bayonet table wasn't here today, but this book will do just fine.

As you can see from the pic this pistol had been handled a lot. Gotta get it home and clean it for it's trip to the range tomorrow.

Very Very nice, I think you have to have a Raptor to be a member here.

Very nice. We just saw a Raptor Micro at a LGS, and there was an awful lot of hand-wringing. A bit of polishing and that stainless should really shine for you. Let us know how it runs tomorrow.

I believe the Micro Raptor is the best looking compact or 380 pistol made.

It is. I have a Micro CDP, and I love it, but if I had known the Raptor was coming, I would have waited.

The Raptor is striped and sprayed down. After I eat, finish cleaning it and put it back together. Then I just have to wait until tomorrow. I miss the days when my back yard was my range.

The Micro is so easy to break down... haven't shot mine yet
