Is the .45 GAP Accurate?
For many uses that the GLOCK pistol is put to this does not matter. Most people use their GLOCK pistols as personal defense weapons or shoot them in training programs that are keyed to personal defense. The targets there tend to be large, close, and come in packs so the lack of a fine trigger pull is not a major issue.

GLOCK Introduces the G38 and G39, Compact and Sub-compacts In .45 GAP
The GLOCK 38 is the same size as the GLOCK 23, GLOCK 19 and GLOCK 32, but a slightly wider slide. The pistol doesn't feel any wider, most likely due to the expert rounding of the slide at the top and at the bottom where the slide meets the receiver. The slide is also rounded at the front to ease in re-holstering.
The .45 GAP allows slightly better stopping power than the ACP cartridge and in a package with the comfort of the GLOCK 17 and GLOCK 22.
