.45 gap vs .45 acp
 
I am looking at get a gun in this cal. but what is the difference between "gap" and "acp"??? Sorry it might be a dumb question!!!:confused:

its a little shorter
due to a design flaw with glock chambers sometimes the unsurported section of cases go pop so the case head area is thicker just ahead of the rim.
glock uses it as a marketing tool.
ballistically identical to 45acp
its waaaaay more pricey

thats about it.

personal opinion:
i see no point to it. there are better guns than glocks for putting 45acp downrange.

Biggest difference is cost and availability. If you do not reload, stay away from GAP. Since you are asking, I bet you better stay with ACP, a gun w/o ammo is just a paper weight. (sorry can't resist). :D

Not a dumb question at all-
But i agree with the above-
Around my little piece of Earth the 45gap is hard to find-
Stick with the 45acp- -
ITS EVERYWHERE YOU WANT TO BE :cool:

45ACP costs enough, skip the oddball.

I have a Springfield XD45 in 45ACP; it serves my tupperware .45 caliber cravings just fine; please consider it an option. :)

.45 ACP because it was designed by John Moses Browning.

The other one was designed by a hardware salesman.

The GAP was designed so that it would provide ACP performance in a "standard 9mm/.40 length frame. It's "dying on the vine" and will die out all together in another 5-10 years. I'd REALLY recommend the ACP over the GAP.

Take a poll on it, and I guarantee 45ACP will win. SUBSTANTIALLY!

IF you want a 45 auto, stick with ACP.

Glock Automatic Pistol sounds cooler, cause it is Glock.:rolleyes:
