TLE Pro (TFS) Perfect

One good thing today first time with the TLE Pro, I fired 100 rounds of FM 230gr FMJ, functioned perfectly and pretty sweet accurate.
Got to tighten thread cap after every magazine or two.
It has a really smooth trigger. It will make a fine silenced weapon some day.

Nice shooting Arland, how do you remember which Kimbers you've shot and which ones you haven't shot?

If suppressors come off the NFA list, I wonder if the TFS models will jump in price.

I love my TLE Pro. It is now my EDC. Wonder if I can get a threaded barrel for it.

Yep, officially jealous. I have a TLE Pro RL and with the Wilson Flat wire kit, that this is rock solid. I can only hope someday (soon) we will see the Suppressor reg's dropped. To your last question, I suspect we would see $'s over MSRP until available capacity meet new demand, so buying one now may actually be a good this. I suspect available units will be VERY Scarce if/when the reg's are dropped.

Ones that have been fired are in a separate rack in the safe. The fired rack is now full and I have quite a bit of cleaning to do.
I am thinking about rearranging the pistol racks but probably still have a fired or dirty section.

IDK but that sounds like a logical thing to happen to the TFS models, the price going up.
I had been wanting a Warrior SOC (TFS), I even had one in my hand two different times with money in my pocket but walked out. First the ones I found in person I thought were priced a little to high and searches online did not find them much cheaper. Also I could never really get over and like even tolerate the ugly "Green" frame. So while looking around I found the Pro and it was cheap compared to the Warrior, I got a good deal on it.

With your collection you need a "clean safe" a "dirty safe" and a "haven't shot it yet" safe.

I like that idea Chuck, I've been working on the boss lady about a second safe but so far she's not to keen to the idea.

Did some rearranging today pics are for you Chuck!
Kimber's on the Top Shelf just like fine whisky.

Hard to see but wire rack in front is dirty or to be shot again then cleaned.

Sorry they are sideways, don't know why, they are correct on the computer.

Hang in there Arland, your new safe is a "Coach Bag" away.
