Raptor Family Picture

well after a 3 day jack around between me letting my drivers license expire, and hassling with the BMV and the LGS over my personal identity I was able to bring home a Ultra Raptor 9mm, the final addition to the Raptor family. This rounds out my Kimbers at lucky 13. While I was waiting for the guy behind the counter decide if my temporary licenses was sufficient enough I came across a Ruger .357 Match Champion that I could not leave without. So today has to be one of the best mondays I have ever had....except now my gun fund is officially drained

Well look at you go....Your very first revolver and a Match Champion at that !!! You are going to get spoiled shooting that MC my friend.

The Raptor family looks bad arse as well. Will you be buying the Micro Raptor 380 so you will have the "entire" Raptor family ?

I really don't see myself getting the Micro Raptors....right now. Maybe someday. I think my next adventure will be to play around with my Crimson Pro. Cerokote or something. Not sure just yet.

Is your Ultra Raptor II a 9mm or a 45? I have a 9 mm sapphire ultra & a 9 mm full size Raptor, but the Ultra is my favorite pistol. I'm getting the bug to buy a black Ultra Raptor II 45. I'd like to hear what you think of yours even though it's pretty obvious that you love the Raptors!

I do have a love for the Raptors lol
This new one is a 9 and it is also my first ultra that is a 9 so I am anxious to get some rounds through it. I have two other ultras that are .45, one being a Raptor, the other is an Ultra Carry, and I absolutely enjoy shooting them both. They are both very accurate for a short barrel and I have had zero issues with either of them. Out of all the Raptors, actually all my Kimbers, I have only had trouble with the full sized Raptor 9mm not wanting to extract when new. I may be biased but based on my personal experience I wouldn't hesitate to pick up a Ultra Raptor .45
