...owner that is. I put it on layaway yesterday and will be going to get it on Friday. New Kimber Pro Raptor. Can't wait!!! Will be posting pics as soon as I get it. Already have 2 boxes of S&B to run through it on Friday, but just may have to buy more. Ya'll have some great information on the site, but I am sure I will have alot of questions as time goes on.

I picked a Raptor Pro with the IE a month ago, been away visiting relatives for the last 2 weeks so I've been missing her. I've got 300 rounds through here and have had 1 FTF and 1 FTE but it's a great gun, very accurate. Get a few rounds through it and you'll love it more. I'm looking for a holster for mine now as I'll hopefully have my CCW when I get home.

Mine has an internal extractor. I can't wait to pick it up tomorrow, going straight to the range. Any pointers as for what I should do first, i.e cleaning check out anything?? Its brand new so... Thanks for the welcome.

I usually field strip one before going out the door to make sure that it's as good on the inside as the out. There have been a few people find rust on or in the barrel on new pistols or a ding in the slide rails. If you take the slide off and do a quick check, there won't be any doubts later about if they were already there. Give it a good cleaning and lube before you shoot it the first time. Congrats on the addition.
