Default .45 GAP People in fall 2015?

Who carries.45 GAP?

After my Glock 36 sells, I'm probably going to go Glock 39 in .45 GAP.

I'm seeing ammo online@$24 a box, and that seems reasonable, even\with
shipping added for 5 boxes or more.

A few local store have .45 GAP at some times, but I'm not going to be shooting it
as much as I do my 9mms.

The Glock 39 .45 GAP will be my choice to get .45 caliber stopping power in
a grip that's suitable to myself and wife.

I'd like to see my wife go to .45 GAP instead of .380 and 9mm, but
that might take some time

The fact that .45 GAP pistols can often be found much cheaper than
other Glocks, is also an attraction to the caliber.

One can hope that 2016 brings Gen 4 Glock 38 and G39s.

Are there any new coverts to the GAP?

I've seen reference to that caliber but know nothing about it. Why would you prefer it over the most common calibers like 9mm, S&W 40, 357 Sig, 45 ACP? Just curious....I for SURE do not need to add another pistol to my collection right now!

Here's what a Glock 39 offers me.

Lower cost than a Glock .45 ACP or 10mm in the large sized Glocks.

A person can often find the 39 and other GAP pistols at much lower pricing than
other Glocks, even including some 9mm, 40 and .357 SIG Glocks as well.

The Mid-Sized Glock 19, 23. 32, or more specifically, Glock 26.27 , and 33 frame
.45 GAP People in fall 2015? - Glock Forum
with a Glock 45 ACP slide, but not that of the G36 or G30S pistols.

Most cite lower recoil with their Glock 39 s or other .45 GAPs, due to the
fact that there is that heavy slide and also the fact that while the 185, 200
and 230 grain .45 GAP loads are as powerful as .45 ACP loads.

The .45 GAP
uses a small pistol primer.

I also don't like how my middle finger gets rapped by the larger framed .45 ACP
like my G36. The underside of the trigger guard feels too wide.

The G36 also has a bit too much recoil for me, even with 230 grain
FMJ.The Glock 39 is heavier and has a wider, heavier slide, or I'm told.

While the .45 GAP, and Glock 39...
.45 GAP People in fall 2015? - Glock Forum
offers me these advantages.

The fact that I'll probably have to ask the local shops to order me ammo..
or by it online at much cheaper pricing.

I have seen more local .45 GAP ammo in the past 3 years than I've seen
.357 SIG or 10m,, of which I shot .357 SIG for 2 years and TEN for 8 years.


I've owned BABY GLOCKs in G26,

.45 GAP People in fall 2015? - Glock Forum
and G33,

but never one in .45 GAP

My Glock 36 will be replaced by a G39, and that will hopefully allow me a G26 sized Glock..
only with a bigger slide, to have .45 caliber stopping power.

Not that I don't feel under armed with my Glock 43

I totally disagree with that based on real world encounters that have happened with 45GAP.

Really? Got any good links to this real world data on .45 GAP?

Here is some research I found that says stopping power is BS (in pistols):
