Range Rentals

Hello All! I had the opportunity to get out to the local indoor range this past weekend and they have several rentals available in various brands and calibers. The only Kimber that I have shot before this was the Solo and I ending up trading it for an AR, a pair of Oakley shooting glasses, a green laser sight and a streamlight. Anyway,
i had the pleasure of shooting a Custom II, a TLE II and a Covert II. WOW! i was impressed! They all just felt right... I have an XDM 45
and a Glock 43 (my EDC) , both of which i love, but man these were impressively accurate. I shot them all about the same, even though they were all 3 of the different sizes offered. The Covert and TLE both had the Crimson Trace grips and I can see a use for them in the right situation. My question is, what are the main differences in these other than the look? I have a feeling that I will be replacing my EDC....
lol.... I value your opinions and am glad to be back on the forum!

Nothing- That's the marketing strategy - get you to buy one of each!
