Hello BOGs, One thing I really like about this forum is the amount of intelligent opinions/answers/suggestions that I get out of the BOG crew that really helps me make informed decisions. With that, I want to ask you guys that if you were limited to either the .45 acp or .45 gap, which would you choose and why? Because I am a big guy and I can handle it, my current carry gun is a Para Ordnance 45. I have never found any reason to doubt the .45 ACP cartridge, especially after researching it and having been able to shoot my pistol before adopting it. Keep in mind, though, I have never tried to shoot a .45 gap and am trying to keep an open mind. Personally, though, I am still trying to figure out how the .45 gap could be considered an improvement over the .45 acp in terms of accuracy, reliability, performance, etc. I can see how it would help introduce the .45 caliber bullet to a larger spectrum due to the fact that you could fit the bullet in a smaller-sized gun, but other than that, I would rather stick with the original. For the knowledgeable BOGs with more experience than me, have any of you ever tried shooting the .45 gap? How does it compare in terms of accuracy, smoothness of cycling, etc., with the .45 acp? Will you trade up to the .45 gap if there is more than a significant increase in terms of performance over the .45 acp? Thank you all for your comments, answers, opinions, etc. I would like to state that I do not wish to muddle the issue or start any sort of flame wars, I just wanted to get a general idea of what the BOG community thinks about this new round. In the end, I'm still sticking by the .45 acp for reasons more that are too many to mention here. Take care to all BOGs, and have a happy vacation!
