How do I calculate rails (including posts & spindles)?

This is a rather large deck and I'm trying to calculate the additional stain I'll need for all the rails. I'm reading in some places that it's linear ft but that doesn't seem adequate. Any insight?

I'm placing these over a wood floor and will likely remove them down the road. Consequently, I don't want to use adhesive if at all possible. Is there another method I'm overlooking?

Where's the best deals on painters tape?

Where can I get the most for my money? I plan on doing a fair amount of painting moving forward so I don't just want to pick it up anywhere.
