It's the new .45 cartridge from Glock (GAP = Glock Auto Pistol).

It's a short version of the .45 ACP... the GAP allows higher carrying capacities that ACP in smaller frame guns. I've seen some gun mags raving about it's ballistics, of course you can always find a gun mag that's raving about just about anything.

Here's a pic... GAP on left, ACP on the right:

While this round is supposed to be slightly shorter than a 9mm round, it still has the same diameter as 45ACP... so 10 rounds of 45GAP will stack inside a magazine just as tall as 10 rounds of 45ACP.
Yeah, you're right.... I read some article to that effect and regurgitated without really thinking about it. If I can find that note I read, I'll post it.

BTW, Jarvis has drop in barrels chambered in 9, 40 & 357 for $185.
