Took the TLE Ultra Stainless out for a spin.

Osage County Guns shipped the TLE to the range in Fulshear where I do a lot of my shooting. Super fast shipping by the way. Bought it Monday night. It arrived today. I drove over there after work and filled out the paperwork then headed to the pistol lane. Nice! I honestly believe that little pistol shoots as well as its big brother, my 5" TLE Custom Stainless. I noticed I was shooting a little high at first, but got it under control after a magazine or two. I was mostly shooting 230 gr FMJ, but ran a magazine of 185 gr. Barnes TAC-XPD +P (my current carry ammo) and a magazine of 185 gr Cor-Bon JHP +P (My old carry ammo). The Ultra fed and cycled everything without missing a beat! All told, I ran about 115 rounds through it today without a single issue whatsoever.

I'll post photos of it once I get my new grips. I ordered Gonzales flag grips with engraved screws like I have on my custom. It's not enough to shoot good. I gotta look good too!!

Congrat's on the new TLE. Those Ultra's are fun to shoot, and great carry weapons.
