I'm a big Glock fan, but I'm not all that hot on the .45GAP models. If you simply MUST have a .45 bullet, and CANNOT get your hand around a large-frame Glock in .45 ACP caliber, then I suppose you are the target market for the .45GAP. My experience indicates .45GAP ammo is much more expensive and harder to find, and that will limit how much you can/will shoot. Shooting less means a lower development of shooting skills (you are not as good a shooter as you might be, otherwise). Thus, I have a hard time recommending any of the .45GAP Glocks.
All current production Glocks (generations 3 and 4) have both a loaded chamber indicator (the extractor protrudes when the chamber is loaded) and a cocking indicator (the trigger - rearward is uncocked, forward is cocked).

Just my opinion, but a strongly-felt one, having seen the results first-hand, many times.
