A few years ago when I started shooting again I was going to stay in 9mm, then I got a 22 to save money it was a Ruger SR22 on range trip a guy was teaching his girl to shoot his gun; I could tell was a officer size 45 she was obviously having a problem with it, to much gun. I offered him and her the SR22 and a couple of mag's, so she would not feel shooting was out of her area. She liked the SR22. He came over and offered me the 45 with two mag's. It was a Kimber Ultra Raptor Stainless, man was it pretty. Having not shot a 45 for about 20 years and then a Government 5 inch I did not know what to expect, it was great. 45 fever got me I got a cheap one then a SW E Sc then a 3" S&W Pro. great guns I kept looking at the Raptor but the price kept putting me off. Well this weekend I pulled the trigger so to say and ordered the Ultra Raptor in Nitron it should be in my hands by the end of the week I can hardly wait. My 9mm diet did not last long; I now have .32, .38sp, 357' and .45 and of course 9mm and 22LR, so much for keeping my ammo simple.
