    Beautiful little thing - i dont understand why this gun isnt more popular? Pretty much the same size as the G27 - 1/2 inch shorter barrel and 1/2 inch shorter grip (and only a little thicker) than the G36 - makes all the difference when trying to hide it on my body. Look, I love my g36 but this gives you everything the G36 gives you but in a smaller package. How can you beat that? The ammo "problem" is a non-issue for me.

    Came with high noon IWB holster and +1 Pearce mag extenders on the two mags. Can't wait to shoot it. 1000 rounds of Georgia arms 185 gr GAP ammo arrives on Tuesday. Also, got some sellier and bellot 230 grain locally from Glockmeister. I'm happy.

    Congratulations. Good gun, easy to shoot and a powerful cartridge all rolled up onto one. I prefer to carry it over the 36 & 26 I own.

    Glock Talk member Butch wrote a helpful and humorous Blog post to help answer your question. He calls it GAPophobia.

    Congratulations on the G39 45GAP. You made a terrific choice for a CCW pistol.

    P.S. Always carry a spare mag with your CCW pistol.

    Congrats! Thank you for the heads-up on the Bud's deal, too. I almost had one a few weeks back from a Slickguns deal I saw, but that company called me to say that it was blue label in-state sale only, and that there was an error in posting that sale. Needless to say, I probably won't be buying anything from those guys ever.

    I was so happy to receive my "shipped" notification and tracking info last night, showing that it was on its way to the LE dealer here in town. Their FFL transfer fee is either $10 or 15, and the shipping was free from Kentucky.

    Glad to see that you've got some ammo to break in your new GAP! I still have a mountain of Hornady 185 XTP rounds to load up, all of which were free from all the promotions I took part in last year.

    So happy for you, man. I can't wait to be in the same place next week! Happy shooting :)

    Congrats on a great gun. It's a great shooter. Only reason I'm not carrying mine is because of the difficult time I have finding JHP. But a have enough target ammo to make it a blast.


    Sent an iPhone 4s sitting next to a Glock 17 loaded with 19 round of +P+ ammo.

    Thanks to all who replied! Hadn't thought of where to get the JHP ammo yet. We'll have to see how hard it is to find. Still can't damper my enthusiasm for this pistol!

    The G39 is a great gun.
    If you don't have a problem the GAP (I don't know why people get so upset with it) it's a great choice.

    Congrats, I'm thinking that I might have to have one of those. I think Underwood Ammo lists Gap loads.

    Why, it's from you, Jon, when I was looking to buy the gun. :embarassed:

    Didn't have access to the camera and had to share my good fortune. Thanks again for selling it to me!
