Fella's;

Your opinions on the Glock Automatic Pistol cartridge? AKA
the .45GAP. Anybody got one? If so, WHY!?
Perhaps if they'd named it correctly? GlackAP? GorkAP?

The New York State troopers all carry them. Suppose to
be able to fit a 45 into a 9mm auto frame. Seem that
for patrol car use the 45 larger frame would be fine.
But NYS is a liberal know-nothing place!


I wondered if it was going to be made to better fit the
oddball Polygonal rifling in Clock pistols?

"But NYS is a liberal know-nothing place!"

I don't know what you're saying, Bear!? Liberals know everything: They know what's best for you; they know how large a bottle of pop you should be allowed to drink; they know that guns in the hand of common people is just wrong; they know what you should spend your money on, so it's just better if they take it away and spend it for you!       
The reason for the 2nd Amendment is so that we can keep all the others.

The .45GAP isn't talked around much anymore so maybe it's a sleeper or a dud.

flyer you are right (better than left)......any way on the liberals knowing stuff....they know everything but nothing Right!

IMHO, the 45GAP will wind up in the same place as the
9MM PitBull and 9MM Win Mag. My LGS will get ammo for
the one guy locally who admits to having one, but only
prepaid.

Americans love the 45 and they love the Glock/plastic
pistols. So lots of LEOs are female and can't grip a
double stack Glock 45.

Bingo 45 G.A.P.

Ammo is outrageously priced so only government people who
get taxpayer ammo can afford it.

if you are all talking about weird cartridges how about a 460 Rowland. I have one and it fills a very specific nitch... the power of a 44 mag in a compact semi auto. I converted a glock 30 compact 45 acp to a Rowland. I don't think a more powerful compact handgun exists.

My 30 Herrett T/C contender fills a niche also.

Same energy as a 44 mag muzzle energy but that value is at
100 yards.

MRM;

That statement implies that somebody in your area actually
has one & is using it! Check the asylums & find out who's
missing. You can tell 'em to just hang at your range, the
escapee will show up sooner or later.

Cb.    That's going to be hard. Over 500 members. We have a sign in
sheet. I check befor I head down to the range nobody admits to
shooting them.   All the put is 45
