Hello,

Recently purchased my first Kimber. Very impressed with the detail of the gun. It's my first .45 caliber and I'm excited to find out what all the hoop-bla is about with this brand. I have a pretty wide collection of fire arms but have not found a real preference for a maker.

hobbies include whitetail hunting and pleasing my wife. When she finds out about my new purchase she might become my former wife.

Anyway, I got a pretty good deal on a used Ultra Raptor II SS. Can't tell if I'm going to keep it yet. I'm a little tough on my firearms and this one seems brand new in the box with all the goodies. I'll probably shoot it a couple times this week and make a decision!

Does anyone have this gun as a daily carry? Does it hold up?

Welcome to the site from Tennessee.

I have the same Raptor, I don't carry it every day but I think it will make a fine carry pistol. I know several members here do use it for EDC.

I'm really impressed with how an officer size 1911 fits my hand compared to my Sig P239
