    So whats the latest on this new Big Dawg ? I'd like to see some of the ballistic data on it as well. Anybody got the scoop on it?
    I heard it has similar dimension to the 17/22.

    I think the general consensus was that the 37 wasn't a Big Dog.

    Besides that I don't think Glock has started shipping them yet. Only a few prototypes out there. I couldn't find any listed on Auction Arms for sale.

    It is exctly the same size as a G17/G22/G31, with 10+1 capacity. Ammo specs available on the Speer web site. Might be www.speer-bullets.com

    Final testing is being completed in Smyrna this coming week. There was a staff meeting in Smyrna Friday morning regarding the release of the G37 for distribution and sale.

    By forum definition, Big Dawgs is for G30's, but since G21's and G36's are welcome here, I expect the G37 to be welcomed too.

    The G37 will most certainly be welcome. Why would it not be?

    I thought there was a thread on this already and most felt that since the G37 was a .45 GAP not a .45 ACP that it wasn't really a big dog. There were a whole bunch of other names for it.

    Maybe I didn't read all the posts right or maybe I read to much into the funny names.

    The 2004 Guns & Ammo Handgun Annual has balistics listed for the .45 GAP. They didn't stick in my mind just yet. I'll post them when I've got the info with me. They listed for 185 & 200 grain projectiles.

    This according to the G&A Handguns 2004 Annual:45GAP Ballistics P.148
    185 @ 1040 FPS w/ 444 Ft. Lbs. of muzzle energy
    200 @ 984 FPS w/ 431 Ft. Lbs. of muzzle energy
    They're listing these as CCI-Speer rounds, with the info shown to be the same for the Gold Dot and the TMJ rounds.
    Looks mighty similar to standard pressure 45ACP rounds with similar weight projectiles.
