    I was trying to find a firearm using the Gun Genie (former Gun Locator) of the GalleryOfGuns site but I found something that I would like to share with you.... if you select Category: Handgun, Gun-Type; Semi-Automatic pistol, then you have to select caliber... they are not using the COLT acronyms... 25AP, 32AP, 45AP (not ACP)... the .380 caliber even have an acronyms. I was wondering why?
    ...It's like Glock that refuse to put other names on their guns; They say .380AUTO intead .380ACP, .45AUTO instead .45ACP, .40AUTO instead .40S&W, .357AUTO instead .357SIG... but they put .45GAP isn't?

    I had to look up the "45GAP" thing the other day: .45 GAP - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    They say that cartridge was designed at the request of the Glock guys. It is shorter. I'm glad i didn't buy any.

    .45gap

    They celebrate that fix something that wasn't broken... solve a problem that don't exist... .45GAP :eek: This Glock people think with a hand in the pocket (think only in money) ... all that marketing for a caliber that will not succeed... All that just was the EGO of Gaston Glock by put the Glock name in a caliber, even if is a sh1tty caliber as .45GAP... if he is so proud of his caliber why refuse put the name of the others in their pistols... I bet that he won't like that S&W, Colt or Sig put MINI.45 for firearms chambered in .45GAP;) (of course... if the low their standards to make a gun chambered in .45GAP:rolleyes:)

    Glock went with the GAP to have 45 ACP power in high cap autoloader.

    And to create a market when none existed, which has proven to be an Epic Fail since GAP ammo is so damned expensive.

    My understanding is that the .45 GAP was meant to be a double stacked autoloader cartridge that would fit in smaller hands, and thus, make a market for the plastic UBER pistol that is Cane's favorite.... :cool:

    I never really bought into the round. The theory is sound, there is "space" left inside the case of a properly loaded .45 ACP round - but it's been working for about 105 years, why change it now?? :eek:

    The recognition of one's character defects is a sign of strength.
