New from CA

Seeing as how I just paid more for a new pistol than I ever have before (Raptor 2, government size, black) I figured I should join this club and talk about it some. I'll be picking it up next week after the ridiculous CA mandated 10-day wait. Sure hope I got a good one and not one of the occasional lemons Kimber allows past Quality Control and onto the truck for delivery.

Thats all, folks!

Thanks for the warm welcome. I've read very few bad reports on this model. I've been wanting one of these cool looking pistols for a long time (1911 pistol #3 for me) and when a pretty good deal on one dropped into my lap I decided to go for it.
One interesting thing I've noticed online is several posts from people who buy one version of the Raptor and like it so much they start collecting the whole line-up (Gov, officer, compact). I can't say that I've seen this with any other 1911 type pistol except maybe Colt.
See you around the forums. Hopefully I'll have something useful to contribute.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois 1trickpony, the Raptor is one of the exceptionally good looking guns in the Kimber line.

Welcome to the forum. I don't own a Raptor, yet, but it's one of my favorites.

Enjoy the gun and make yourself at home.
