    New Para .45 GAP

    I just saw an article for a new Para-Ordnance .45 3" barrel built for the GAP bullet. They say this should do away with the FTF & FTE problems with short barreled .45's. What do you think?

    Possibility Hank - but I would want to do a pretty exhaustive test before committing an opinion. It should help!

    Best thing is, someone send me a test gun and at least a case of ammo - then I will thru my extreme magnanimity find time to go check it out

    I don't see how it will help, unless the GAP uses higher pressure to propel the bullet, therefore the slide. Only advantage of the GAP I understand is the shorter grip. I don't find the .45 aCP grips to be too big, but I suppose some folks might.
