My name is Larry and I am a Kimber-a-holic..

Came home with a new Stainless Ultra Raptor ii today. It is truly amazing. I hope to take it to the range tomorrow.

I just bought a new Sapphire Ultra ii -- two weeks ago today.

So, I need some .45acp ammo. I only have about 300 rounds here. According to Kimber I need 1000 rounds to break in these two guns.

I don't know which is more beautiful.

I started out with a SOLO two years ago. These guns are so addictive. I have other makers guns, but they really don't compare to Kimber.

Giving the Raptor a clean & lube now. Range trip tomorrow. My wife will have her P238.....she loves that little gun....but I will give her a lane of her own while I have a great time with my new girls!
