    Anyone ever consider petitioning IDPA to allow the .45 GAP in CDP division? Seems kind of silly not allowing it? I think it would increase the popularity of the cartidge. Imagine a G35 sized .45 GAP - count me in (if it was allowed)!

    I know for me, I stick with calibers that meet a competitive need, since I do shoot a lot of competition, which is why I don't have .357 Sig, 10mm, or .45 GAP.

    Sounds like a good idea. I'd sign the petition.

    Most people I spoke to would, including those that have no intention of using the .45 GAP. No one I've spoken to sees it as a threat or unfair advantage, just a different option to launch .45 cal bullets.

    Last PA State, we had a guy shooting an XD in ESP. He was running 9+1 which was an advantage on a few stages. A couple SOs wanted to ding him, until they found out he was shooting a .45 GAP and 9 rounds was max capacity of the mag.

    If you're willing to translate all the acronyms into English, I might be willing to sign.

    XD: Who knows? :supergrin:


    And, yes, I'd be quite happy to download my magazines to eight rounds and campaign my G37 in CDP. Or load my G38 mags to capacity and use that wonderful pistol in CDP.

    I don't shoot IDPA, but a G34 sized GAP would be very nice.

    I'd sign it. But I'm not optimistic.

    Doesn't seem to be a whole lot of interest in it.
