-enjoy "the hunt" when it comes to tracking down ammo
-prefer to pay more for a round that by its own claim, mimics ACP performance
-wish to minimize the resale potential of your firearm
-aren't deterred by the threat of impending obsolescence
The GAP will perform fine. It's just a heavy price to pay simply to "be different". Go 45ACP every time.
Well everyone I thank you for all the information!!! It sounds pretty clear that the ACP would be the road I need to travel down. It will also be a carry gun (forgot to mention that) So since I am on the subject what would be a good "practice" round in 45acp and a good "defense" round?? I would like HP for my defense rounds!!
I carry a gun because a cop will never be there, when I need them!!!
Sticks and stones may break my bones, but hollow points expand on impact.
Practice with FMJ's, and use HP's or frangibles for defense.
I usually keep my .45's loaded with Extreme Shock EPR frangible, or Federal Hydra Shok HP's.
There are a lot of good choices out there for defense ammo, you'll just have to try some out and see what you (and your gun) like the best.

Practice with the same weight FMJ as the HP you're going to carry. Be SURE to run your selected HPs thrrough your gun to ensure they'll feed (at least a box or 2). I like Gold Dots or Hornady's Critical Defense but almost any modern HP will perform great.
Sometimes you earthlings REALLY amaze me!
