I was on the fence about one at a LGS, but I didn't want to take on a new caliber.... dies, brass, holsters; the deal died when the shop decided they wanted an extra $100 from the deal we talked about just two days earlier.

Seriously, I love all these cool calibers but I have been trying to cut back on the numbers for which I handload. I have 45 auto and 9mm; held off on the 40 S&W and 45 GAP. Passed on the 357 Sig cuz I've been into the 9x23 Winchester for some time now and a 125 @1500 fps is not hard for the caliber.

So, yeah, 45 GAP is a good caliber but I'm just not willing to take it on when I'm so well covered by what I have.
