    Besides Glock, does anyone else make a pistol chambered for the GAP round? Springfield Armory had an XD chambered in .45 GAP for a while but I don't think they make them anymore. Are there any other ones?

    Isn't there an XD, and a few 1911's?

    Yes, the XD was chambered in it for a time, as well as the Springfield Armory EMP. Those and the Glocks 37/38/39 are the only ones I'm aware of that were ever chambered in .45 GAP.

    It seems as though it's pretty much going to be up to the Glock users to keep the cartridge alive.

    Yep

    They should just let it die in peace, as far as I'm concerned.

    At 3 times the price of 40cal (discount), I think it just a matter of time now.

    Agreed.

    If you want the power of a .45 in a small frame, may I suggest the .40S&W. Or just suck it up and shoot an ACP.

    The New York, Florida, and Georgia State Police/Highway Patrol all use the G37 as their duty weapon and they all switched over within the last 5 or 6 years so those weapons will still be in service for quite a while. As a result Speer, if no one else, will need to keep making their Lawman and Gold Dot ammunition in this chambering for the next several years.

    Yes, thy probably should have went with the 21SF, 22, or even 31 but they didn't.

    Yeah, I know they use it.

    It's a good round, but I don't really understand the need for it.

    I realize a few police depts. use it, and it has a few fans in the civilian world, but I always thought it was an excellent solution searching for a problem.

    Pretty much.

    After all, 45ACP is probably America's favorite pistol round.

    I wasn't aware of that, but I wouldn't put it beyond the realm of possibility. After the initial intro, I really didn't care for the round, so I stopped really paying attention to it.
