    Spend all that money to create confusion. Never seen a need for the .45 GAP.

    Glocks may be as reliable as the sun an moon but it does show ,by how the GAP round skyrocketed to the top of the firearms community, how much influence glock has in the shooting world..........

    As the late Colonel Cooper would say, the GAP is a solution desperately in search of a problem!!

    Ain't that the truth?

    I've wondered about this myself. The .45 GAP is touted as having .45 ACP performance out of a smaller cartridge. But it's not that much smaller, so a good hi-cap .45 acp holds almost the same amount of rounds per mag (gun-specific, of course). So where's the benefit?

    And it seems if you cram more powder into a smaller cartridge, you increase the pressure in that cartridge, which at the very least increases recoil and seems to give the gun a sharp upcrack. Probably wears the gun out faster, too. I'm not a .357 Sig fan at all for that reason. That's my opinion, anyway.

    The gun rags go ape for every new thing that comes on the market, whether its actually worth a flip or not. Like the .41 AE, for instance. Every gun mag slobbered all over themselves when the .45 GAP hit. Now you've got to look hard to find a good review about them.

    I won't buy one, I don't believe. Over hyped to the max.

    Is Earth larger tha the USA? If so, there are many countries where a private citizen cannot own a military 9mm/45acp or police caliber 9mm/45acp/38 special/357 Mag. Therefore, the 45 GAP does have a place in the world of handguns. Regards, Richard

    I don't see what are trying to say Richard? If they can't have any of those calibers how can they have a G.45? Are you saying they can't have the .45ACP but they can have a .45 Glock?

    It is true - there are countries where they can only have 38 super or 380 or 32, but I do not think 45 GAp will make tje list if 9mm and 45ACP is prohibited. I think the GAP is mostly an American round.

    I think(and by that I mean I know but I don't want to come off as a cocky #$%$), that he means its sold and used primarily in America by Americans. Everyone knows Glock is from Austria

    I understand why Glock decided to make this round but am not sure if the reduced size of it really makes that much difference for carrying. I’ve personally not held one so can not comment either way on the size factor.

    I think that the GAP is great for those with smaller hands that wish to have a .45ACP type gun. The ACP fits me perfectly and that is what I stick with. I love the accurace, size and price (compaired to GAP)

    Small Hands

    At first glance, I too did not see any reason for the existence of he .45GAP.
    Then I acquired a PPK/S-1 made by S&W and got a set of replacement
    grips for it.

    The little mouse gun with the modified grips fit my hand so well I realized
    just how foolish I have been over the years trying to get my hand around
    larger guns.

    I discovered since I have somewhat short fingers I have no business
    trying to shoot the large frame Smiths, such as the model 29.

    I really like the .45 caliber for defense, but I have not yet found a gun
    in that caliber with a small frame that I can really wrap my hand around.
    If someone would make a small fame auto based around the .45GAP, I
    would be very interested. Anyone other than Glock, that is.
    Polymer framed guns don't interest me.

    In other words, I'm interested in a small framed steel semi-auto in .45gap.
    Does anyone make one?
