Range Report

Hi All, just picked up a Kimber Ultra Raptor from a buddy of mine who is lightening his collection. Got a pretty sweet deal and couldn't wait to get to the range.. the rest as they say is history. Did have a bit of trouble with slide sticking while shooting. maybe its the new ammo I introduced, FM 230 gr. FMJ new. Or the magazine that came with the gun seemed to be very hard to load as tolerance was very tight. either way. it only happened twice with 150 rnds running thru it. Either way. I'll work it out. Seems like my Kimber Pro carry gave birth to a bouncing baby Ultra Raptor You guys are no good for my wallet... HEHEHE Shoot, for got to rotate pics, anyway, you get the idea. first target is 15 ft. second, (on right is 25)
