Micro Raptor found it's family.

I found one, well I didn't find it but I bought it. I've a good team of researchers, my wife. I just picked up my often carried Ultra Raptor and sometimes carried Raptor Pro from the Smith last week for some barrel work and refinishing and she surprised me with the Micro.

The MSH on the Micro Raptor needs to be manufactured for the rest of Raptor line.

Here's my favorite. I normally wouldn't deface a Raptor but My Grandfather passed and he was fond of these grips that were on one of my Stainless II's. I bought this gun in his remembrance back in 2012.

No need. I'll probably just ride over to Sportsman Warehouse, they probably have one waiting for me. LOL.
Do I need another Sapphire? Nope. Do I need a .380 pistol? Nope. Will it be cool as chit when I get one? Hell Yeah.

Arland, just between you and me don't drink the .380 koolaid. 95% of the opinions on the performance of the .380 are based on yesterdays numbers. The new powders and bullet design today have brought the .380 or short 9mm if you will to a new level well above what it was in the past. Today's .380 is what yesterdays 9mm was when everyone was jumping on the 9mm bandwagon.
