Christmas in November

It’s been a while since I purchased a new gun. I was interested in a 9mm with a 4” barrel and a 45 with a 3” barrel. I don’t owe either one. Kimber didn’t have a 9mm that interest me in my price range.
I was very interested in the Springfield Range Officer Elite Champion 9. This gun had everything I was looking for and it was reasonably priced at around $825-$850 on GB. I was ready to buy one and then Kimber came out with their 2018 models. I’m not sure if if I really want one of the 2018 models but before I buy one I’d like to see them first.
Now I see the sales EKG listed the other day from Osage County Guns and the SS Ultra TLE 45 was selling for $699+30 shipping. I’ve been looking at this gun prior to this sale because it has great features for the money. I saw it listed for $799 and I thought that was a good price so when I saw it for $699 I knew I would kick myself in the ass if I let it go.
At this point I reached out to Marshall because I needed someone to enable me.
After a whole bunch of enabling from Marshall...
“LMAO. You have come to the wrong place my friend.That's a great price, I would buy it”.
He really twisted my arm and I bought this SS Ultra TLE II 45. It’s not the newest version it’s the one with black grips not green. Other then that I can’t see any difference. After I get the gun and break it in it will become of my carry guns. I can’t wait.

Congrats. I have the Pro Stainless TLE with the black rubberized grips. Love it. Great gun. My EDC. Thought I was gonna swap out the grips, but after shooting it for a while I've grown quite fond of the black rubberized grips. Enjoy.

Congrats JC and did you really expect me to talk you off of the ledge when you texted me ???.......

BTW, the offer still stands for me to go pick it up for ya in Belle, Missouri and start the break-in procedure. Now how many friends would do that for you ??.....

I knew I went to the right place when I needed an enabler. With the 3000 rounds you just bought Iím sure it would get a good break in.

Been there done that. I bought the single clip IWB for $23 yesterday.

Iíve always wanted a Wright Leather Pancake holster but didnít know which gun to buy one for. Not a cheap holster so I donít want to buy one to leave sitting around. Iím not buying one right now but eventually I will get one for this gun. Chuck always highly recommends this holster and heís never steered me wrong with his suggestions.
