    Should.. I go .45 GAP??

    If I go .45 GAP, it will be the Glock 39.

    My choice would be the SHTF GEAR hybrid for IWB carry:


    (As seen with my XDs.45) but I have no idea
    what kydex and OWB holster fit the G39?

    I don't shoot it but I have friends that do... They LOVE IT!! Grip size similar to 9mm but power of .45 ACP... What's not to love? Ammo cost... But, if you are a reloader with smallish hands, .45 GAP is a terrific option.

    I have very very large mitts, I'm 6'8" and standard G21 and G20s feel huge in my hand... .45 power with a 9mm grip frame is a nice option for those that need it.

    Depends on if you want to pay more for a cartridge that is not as readily available compared to standard calibers. If you're gonna reload it then it's a good option, if not I'd stick to something common.

    GAP is Good for all of the above as previously mentioned comments! I am the author of the "Once You go GAP Group" and am a bit partial to the caliber and firearms but admittedly carry other calibers with no rhyme or reason in rotation. I always feel most comfortable with anything 45 albeit GAP or ACP
    Happy New Year...

    If you've got friends into .45 GAP, I've got one listed for sale in the classifieds (unashamed plug). I love how the .45 GAP fits my hand better than ACP but I don't reload I bought to many pistols last month so one (or two) have to help fund some of the purchases. Not reloading really hurts with my rifle shooting (.308, 5.56) and I shoot 5.7x28. Most my pistol work is 9mm so the .45 GAP ends up not getting enough attention.

    With my luck the military will pick .45 GAP as their new round and it'll go nuts but for now, I think it really needs someone who can reload for it.

    To answer the question that was asked earlier, the Gap will fit in a Glock 21 holster.

    As far as reloading, you can use the same dies for the GAP as the ACP. Even better, the powder loads are almost identical if you use WW231 or Titegroup.

    I have the G38 and LOVE the GAP round! The first time I shot the GAP round I was absolutely shocked at the lack of recoil and how smoothly the round fired. As I have stated many times before here, if you are cruising your local Walmart store shelves for GAP rounds, you probably won't find any but if you buy ammo online, you will generally have no problems finding it at all. My G38 also fits in my G19 holsters as long as they are all leather, or hybrid (half leather/half kydex). It will not fit in a G19 all kydex holster. For those, as Fyrtwuck mentioned, you need to use a G21 holster.

    I've gotten some really good deals on GAP ammo from people who thought they were buying ACP. I was on Glock Talk dot com looking through the classifieds and ran across a deal on GAP brass. $200.00 for 5000 rounds of brass.

    It's out there if you just look around a bit.
