Greetings everyone!

My name is Nick and I'm from the north side of Chicago. I just picked up my first Kimber, a Micro 9 Raptor from Cabellas today! I plan on using it as my conceal carry handgun once they get around to sending me my CCW license. I also own a Beretta 92A1 and a Ruger SR22 for plinking. Right now I just can't stop looking at this beauty!

Nick

Nick, welcome to the site from Tennessee. Congrats on the new Micro9. Do yourself a favor and be sure to clean and lube (lube extra) your new Micro before your first range visit.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois Nick and congratulations on the new Micro Raptor. If I remember correctly t took almost 100 days for my CCL to be processed, which range do you shoot at?

Hi Chuck. I usually just go to Gat Guns, but usually means only like once a month if that. I've been meaning to check out Maxon's, have you been there? I've been waiting about 70 days so far, so I'm shooting for the end of July for my Wally walk!

Hi Nick, I qualified for my CCL at Gat but that was a couple of years ago, nice range. I've shot at Maxon's a couple of times but usually go to Article II, it's not as nice as the other ranges but it's closer to home.
