Anybody ever shot one? Anyone ever see the need for one? I heard a conversation where an enthusiast was extolling the superiority of the Glock in .45 GAP over the Glock in .45 ACP. Now Glock hating aside, I think a Glock in .45 GAP is one of the dumbest ideas in the last 10 years of handgun development.

- It lets you stuff a 45-caliber bullet into a 9mm-size gun.
- It has the advantage of holding fewer rounds than the same gun in its original 9mm chambering.
- It has the advantage of being a rare occupant of shelf space at the sporting-goods counter.
Wait, maybe not all of those are actual 'advantages'...
For that matter, the .45GAP seems to share a lot of the same 'advantages' as the .40S&W imo...
Seriously, it's one of those things that are in themselves totally fine, yet have zero interest to me personally. The .45GAP, the .40S&W, and the 16 gauge shotgun are probably the most prominent residents of that category.

Only thing it did was sell some guns an ammo to all the "kids" that have to have the latest and greatest thing out. 40 is also in that class to me. Will never own either.
