Keep your .45 stuff, someday the need for another single stack will be too strong to resist. As a rule .40 SS guns are more difficult to get and keep running.

I understand and you do make sense, maybe I'll just sell the reloading supplies. It's so much cheaper to load 9mm it a joke. Bullets and brass for .45's are just too expensive

I want  to get a .45 one of these days but it's just so convenient to have almost all of my pistols able to shoot the same 9mm load for which I still have a 5 gallon bucket of brass and all of the other necessary components on hand.

I'm putting a nice one up for sale beginning do Sept.

I would likely get one of these. Essentially an ACCU in .45. Might as well stick with a common platform.

That is an awesome package at the bottom of the page. David is doing a trigger/pro package on a P-09 right now for my "non-competition gun" :)

I totally agree on staying with the same platform.

Looks like a bushing barrel. Single stack or double?

Double. 10+1. CGW mills in a tighter bushing similar to the ACCUs.

That thing is badass

Interesting sounding trigger too, "Tri-Trigger"

Shit—now there's a reason for L10 other than hiding out.

I should restate that as Double/Single. It's really easy to run the CZs cocked and locked if shooting in L10 or CDP (I think it's CDP legal).

L-10 FTW :)

I'm laughing because I've sworn in the past I'd NEVER shoot L-10

I bet if you slapped a magwell on that it would be a great L-10 platform

Have you ever held one of those things? It's freaking huge and heavy.

Nope, never have

I have a TS. Is it much larger than that?

40 ounces unloaded.  I would not like that for a carry gun.

Isn't the Unicorn in the 45 range?

I wouldn't want one of those for a carry gun either.  I'm a Glock fanboy anyways.  If the bullet doesn't get them maybe the shrapnel from the kaboom will.

Ok, back on topic

After watching Ben's video several times and reading all of his books I need to ask a question.

He talks about doing reloads lower, told Hopkins to lower his reload in the DVD so what's the deal?

I dry fired for several years looking into the magwell with the gun held high, I dry fired for a week (albeit with a fucking plastic platform) and just had problems nailing clean reloads. My question is, are you guys reloading lower as Ben says? If so wad it a smooth transition from the higher reload?

I'm not afraid of reps, but it really seems like it should be easier to hit a smooth reload when you can see inside the magwell.

I definitely disagree with the mentality that the gun should not leave your line of sight, shouldn't drop, etc. 
Some of the idea positioning for a reload are much easier to pull of if you have a big fat magwell instead if a Production Gun set up. 
To do a fast and reliable reload in Production you need to bring the gun in a bit closer into your "work space." 
 
If you can do it reliably and quickly out and high then by all means keep doing it but you may find that your ability to accurately get the mag into the gun will improve by bringing it in.  
When discussing this on another forum someone brought up "the perfect reload" which is a Travis Tomasie video showing him reloading on an open gun very quickly out and high. 
I reminded them that only does Travis have the big fat magwell but also he doesn't always do that reload. 
When running a field course he brings the gun into his workspace and under his line of sight to reload. 
Especially for a Production shooter I think trying to always reload with the gun all the way up and out is very counter productive.
