Gun show in Raleigh tomorrow

Looking for a Raptor Custom, but don't expect to find one. Will likely need to special order that.

Pretty sure GunBroker has some for auction. Unless you insist on buying from LGS.

Great choice Dave, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed, my SS 5” Raptor is my favorite gun.
If you do consider GB like Arland suggested, there are a few auctions going on right now with no reserve, one is up to $805 and another is at $1000.

Whoa, $805 makes me want to throw a bid out there even tho I already have a SS 5" Raptor.

For NIB those are good prices.

I bit the bullet and ordered/made a deposit on a blued Raptor Custom model; the dealer expects it would be in the store in a week or two. Then it will be time to head to the beach to pick it up and treat Momma to a weekend there.

Here's a very funny thing; I saw a Hero Custom at 2 different vendors. The one guy, who I'm sure was temp. help, didn't know what he had. They had it listed at something over $800, I don't remember exactly. I expressed strong surprise that it was there since it's only been on the website for about a month, and asked if they were a Kimber Master dealer. He didn't know, but a more knowledgeable guy stated they order direct from Kimber, so I'm guessing that they probably are.

BTW, they look as good in person as they do on the website.

I wish I had been there, I would have grabbed that Hero custom so fast they wouldn't known what happened. I been waiting for my LGS to get the 1 ask them to order since the day after they announced its release. I'm about to but 1 off of gun broker. I just prefer to buy local.
