A Little Range Time

I had a few hours and ran to the range with the Ultra Raptor and Ultra Aegis. The 9mm Raptor was finally ready for some self defense loads as I had 600 through it. It ran flawlessly, 6 mags each of Federal Hydra-Shok 124g and Remington Saber Gold 124g, it ran em like the FMJ

Here's a pic at 25 ft with the Hydra Shok

Then I ran 3 mags of Hydra Shok through the Ultra Aegis at the same 25 ft as it's my EDC and I really only run self defense loads through her now-a-days...

Funny how one groups low and the other high, these were done via rapid firing and adjusting on the fly as I could, basic self defense, life or death, shooting.

Looks like either would be effective.

...they look nice, but if you get one in your hand I predict we'll be seeing a Raptor range review with your name on it :-)
...if you feel those grips that will close the deal :-)

edit: didn't notice you have a raptor, guess you've already been bitten:-) Nice shooting
