Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois Ohiocalvinist and congratulations on the new Raptor. If the weather is bad take advantage of it, study the owners manual and give the gun a good cleaning and lube it up.

Welcome Calvin from southern Cal. Since you cannot shoot it until spring I have a plan you should seriously consider. I live in sunny CA. so if you ship me the gun I will take it to the range and properly break it in with 500 rds of 230 grain fmj. You can trust me I own a Raptor myself. I will then ship it back to you during the first thaw. This way you will not have to go through the drudgery of breaking in a brand new Kimber! Come spring you will be good to go and no worries.
