No exact figures. I keep 2-3k loaded for each pistol caliber, 1k on hand for .223 and x39, and 300 rounds of .308. I keep enough components around to load another 5k in each caliber.

Not sure...

As did I. I've sent several messages over the last month with no response to any. I did verify my reoccurring payments are still active.

I lay the cases on their sides when I spray them so it minimizes the amount inside the case. Some always gets in but it minimizes the amount of powder sticking to the case and to the powder measure.

I generally prefer the balance of a 4" gun over a 5" so I generally do a little better with one in IDPA. My scores are a little better shooting steel at distance with a 5" gun though. It's probably...

I've had a x39 for years and I agree that 5.56 is less finicky. Mags are the key and I've been using the old C-Products mags, which are now available through AIM and other sites, since I bought it in...

Effective range of 1911

Pretty sure the "effectiveness" is related to the caliber more than the type of gun. Since 1911s are available in 9mm, 10mm, .45, .38 super, etc not to mention the various +P rounds, you will have...

Congrats. My wife will carry an EMP but feels like a knife is overkill for some reason. She does carry a small LM on her keychain though that she uses for a blade.

One of these four. CRK Inkosi or ZT450 for work or a BM G10 Grip or a Spyderco PM2 for home.

I've had a aluminum GS on my Kimber for at least 8 years so they are out there. No idea who made mine but I'm sure it's lighter than steel but the .25oz difference is probably negligible on a 34oz...

I only see HD models in .45 however Kimber does list the Raptor Pro in 9mm with a steel frame. It's a bit pricier that the 4" CDPs, TLEs, etc but it's an option.
