The idea for the .45GAP looked great on paper. It does everything then .45ACP does in a smaller, more compact package so it'll fit in more handguns (including the glock). It has exactly the same bullet and same performance as the .45ACP. The guys who love .45ACP will love this!So if it had been called 45 Sig, that would have been OK?
Funny thing is, it did everything the .45 ACP does, it’s a GREAT design in that sense. But the ONLY extra thing it did was let you use smaller guns as .45 launchers. It still limited capacity vs everything else, and cost more, which was why people dumped it so fast once they started trying to pay for training.
Except that they didn't realize that the die-hard .45ACP fans don't love it because of empirical performance metrics, regardless of what they claim. And because the .45GAP wasn't a .45ACP the "a 45 won't shrink" folks didn't want to have anything to do with it.
