    ACP= Automatic Colt Pistol Sometimes can find in surplus ammo can be found some times cheap when not in time of war.
    GAP=GLOCK Automatic Pistol

    ACP is Longer case Can use either Small or large pistol primers IIRC.
    GAP is Shorter case length I believe uses a small pistol primer

    Bullet weights the same velocity the same or close enough for government work
    GAP VERY EXPENSIVE
    GAP GRIP slightly bigger then a 9mm

    GAP=The answer to a question that was never asked
    Reason=Gaston wanted his name on a cartridge like SIG and SW

    Don't get mad guys at the last two comments its kind of a running joke!

    45 GAP is a calibre that glock invented "Glock Automatic Pistol"one problem with 45gap ammo is it's availability not everybody carries it in stock and even tho I've never bought any or priced it I would assume it's pretty high

    The .45 GAP would make more sense in a gun the size of a Kahr. As it stands, it is only made for larger pistols that are essentially the same size as their ACP counterparts. I can see no reason to buy any of the currently available GAP pistols.
