I'm disappointed to hear about the delay in the 900/1000, but it's undoubtedly better to wait until it's in a state that you're happy with than to release something you know is broken. That's a pretty significant and surprising delay though. There's a bunch of routes I'd like to fly that are only serviced by the CRJ9 but I'm sure it will be worth the wait.
Great news about the 500/700 though -- I'm very much looking forward to having that back in a usable state (and hopefully with fixes for some of the issues I've reported over the past few months). I've had to go back to X-Plane since SU5 was released and it just isn't the same.
Learned how to reload and do it correctly. So as long as my primer stock holds out I am good. I stocked up on "factory" ammo which would be the ammo I use if I ever "have" to use it and the ammo I use for zeroing. I train with and plink with my reloads.
