Joined a month or so ago but haven't posted until today. I'm a retired engineering consultant living about 5 miles from the Gulf Coast. I was born in Galesburg, Il but grew up in Oklahoma City.

Just bought a Kimber Stainless Raptor Pro II in 9mm two weeks ago and so far I love the gun. I reload my own ammo and with minimum loaded 115 gr bullets the recoil is about like shooting a .22 LR. I love that. It makes follow up shots faster and much more accurate.

I got that one because it is the only 1911 style 9mm I could find that is all steel. The others I looked at had aluminum receivers or frames and I wanted all stainless steel.
