Hello from NE Louisiana!

Hello guys, my name is Jacob, and I'm 31 years old. I tend to have an addictive personality. I'm at least proficient in basketball, baseball, golf, tennis, bowling, ping pong, and now shooting! I am a member of a local range, I am a card carrying NRA member, as well as a CHP license holder.

Don't get to shoot nearly as much as I want to due to work (I'm an ISO at a local bank) and Grad school at night. I have 3 kimber's, a Micro Raptor, a Pro TLE/II, and an Ultra Raptor II that I'm waiting to take ownership of. Looking forward to gaining some knowledge from you fine ladies and gentlemen!

Thanks,

Jacob

Welcome Jacob from southern Ca.
Sounds like you have a nice Kimber collection started! We love Pics on this forum. I think some of the members would rather look at pictures instead of reading. Not sure if it is a reading disability or just lusting after beautiful Kimbers!

Welcome from Northeast, Pa Jacob. Like Tom said, nice Kimber collection. I got a 5" SS Raptor for Christmas and I love it. I'm sure you will be please when yours arrives. Kimber's alone are addictive and with your addictive personality it should be interesting to see how many you will purchase in the future.

I'll put it like this. When I got into golf, I stumbled upon a little site called cameroncollector.com dedicated to Scotty Cameron putters. I fell in love with it and before I knew it I had over 100k invested in putters! Got rid of them a year or two ago, and picked up shooting because it is something I can do with my aging grandfather. He is a lifelong shooter and has several major target competition wins. I felt this would bring me closer to him, and it really has! Tour putters and guns are the only two things I've seen that you can use frequently and not take a bath when you get ready to sell! I'll be around some more, that's for sure. Looking forward to getting to know some of you guys, and possibly even grabbing a gun or two off here!

Welcome from Texas. I have a few in-law relatives in south Louisiana and visit the casinos there quite often. As swca said we love pictures.... a picture is worth a thousand posts.

I will post some pictures soon, my brother has my micro raptor as I've been carrying my 238/938 for the past year. My TLE/RL II I actually sold to a friend this morning who had been lusting over it for the past few months. Got my money back out of it and got to keep the laser grips. If I don't sell them I'll likely just buy another pro to put them on lol. Will send lots of pics when I pick up my ultra raptor.

7 yards standing with TLE/RL II



15 yards standing with TLE/RL II



Picture of my TLE/RL II, 238/938, and an old Saturday night special my grandfather gave me long ago.
