Thanks I think I will. Just bought my 3rd GAP today along with my 4th 10mm.

I asked the guy behind the counter if he happened to have any GAP, said yea I got 5 boxes of Speer .200gr, same price as the PMC .45ACP (Korea) that just came in..how many you want. This is the 4th gun store I've been in for the first time that had GAP ammo on the shelf.
I would trust the South Korean PMC ammo. They have been our close and trusted allies since WWII.

I've been using PMC ammo since the early 80's, mostly in .223 and have had nothing but the best performance. I will say that 99.999% of it was much HOTTER than American made, but it was also very clean burning. Back when it was cheap (like in the 80's) my shooting buddy and I could rip through 3 wooden crates on a Saturday and Sunday. I liked it so well I started using it exclusively for my .357mag,.38 special, and .44mag.

Yeah, lots of folks predicted the demise of the 10mm in the 80's-90's, yet in 2013 they just can't keep up with supply and demand. Just because there are those slow to adapt or switch doesn't mean there is something inherently wrong with the round. As more and more people try it, more will wake up to it's merits.

Same with the GAP. Some folks are just too slow to accept change.

You do know you can reload 45GAP with the 45acp dies you already have? You can use the same 185,200,230 grain bullets and at most your only extra expense will be for small pistol primers unless you are already using them for some of your 45acp or 9mm. I do it all the time on a lee set up for 45acp. Easy Peasy Lemon Squeazy.

Thanx! I didn't know that.

What advantage do you see? Identical ballistics but a less common chamber?

Speaking only for myself the selling point was Identical ballistics coupled with a smaller more comfortable grip. It was a win, win, win.

I see. I love single stack .45s grip size but I played with a double stack HK my hand's grip wouldn't even fit all the way around. I can see how this would greatly benefit a double stack or people with smaller hands now that I think about it.

It's grip size is almost identical to the G17 and G22. It's not a slim grip per se, but much slimmer than a G20 or a G21.

I see the D37 is out in Gen 4 with the removeable backstrap. Sounds like a nice set up.

One less reloading component (LPP) to look for and stock up on. Don't have to change primer systems out. More efficient round (about one grain of powder less per round for same velocity). Easier to reload, less chance of double charge due to smaller case. I get to keep all my 45 dies, molds and sizers,

Plus, on top of that, I shoot my GAPs better than my ACP guns, Now might be the time to unload them for good money, I don't shoot them any more.

Keep on shooting the GAP and buying ammunition components.

I just got into shooting the GAP about 6 months ago. Awesome round. I have 2 G37's and I just bought a factory rebuilt G38 in OD off gunbroker. Pick it up from my FFL next week. I can't wait.

I think you'll like it.

G38 is my favorite gap, followed by 39 & 37. It's really got a slide mass perfect, at least for 200gr gold dots.

I have a G37 and a lot of ammo for it.I like the G17 sized grip. I can buy Magtech FMJ and Speer HP all day long here for the same price(or nearly) as ACP.
I'm hoping Glock will make a Gen 4 G38. I don't know why but my 37 has the best trigger of any of my Glocks.

Got my date/time mixed up and missed out. Congrats on the purchase.

I'm covered, bought before the current shortage.

Could acquire some GAP if I had to:

Thanks. I don't see too many OD G38s so I had to grab it. Going to shoot it tomorrow for the first time. Looking forward to it.
