A couple of thoughts. First, don't you have to pay a Hazmat charge for powder and/or primers if they have to be shipped. If so, buying more powder reduces the surcharge per pound. If you buy just 2...

I have a Valkyrie Commander and an ECO, both in 9mm. If you're going to be carrying inside the waist band, why not look at a commander or officer sized 1911? Both of my pistols are very accurate. I...

You should look at a Kimber Micro 9. Unbelievable little pistol. It's like someone took a 7 round mag (9mm) and built a mini 1911 around it. I have really been impressed with mine and picked it up...
