On a positive note, I have no interest in .45 GAP.

Went to PD range on an invite, haven’t shot on that range in a long time. Shot my Glock X19, going to put Tru Glo sights on it for thes old eyes.
Ordered a Bat Masterson holster for my SAA 6 shooter. Yes I will really practice and carry it (somewhat) concealed.

I picked up my 30sf last week and picked up 2 9 round magazines this morning and took it to the range for the first time. All 4 of the mags were extremely difficult to load, and if I could even get the last round in there, there was no chance of putting the magazine in the gun with the slide forward. With the slide back, 1 maybe 2 times, when I put the mag in the gun, it ejected the top round straight out the top of the magazine, and through the ejection port. lol. So they are basically 8 and 9 round magazines even though they are marketed as 9 and 10. Are they normally this bad? And should I expect them to loosen up? I have 3 other glocks, and have never seen magazines this difficult to load.

I was bored today and emailed HK and SA.

HK does not recommend .45 Super in any of their guns.

SA said the XDM is rated for +P but not .45 Super.

I was looking to shoot it out of a USC. Figured with 16" barrel might make a good woods PCC.

This has been an issue since they made the pistol. Ohhh lookey 10 rd mags? Not so much. Surprisingly, I have the same issue when I put a +2 on a G 38 Mag and really only get +1. Being that the 45 GAP rd is so superior to all others and all.

My experience w/the .45 Super cartridge, is limited to use in a "modified" G30 & "modified" G21.


Commenting on using it in a stock HK USC, would be pure speculation, on my part.

Good shooting

No, I have not.

I researched it, when I was looking for increasing the velocity/down range effect of my .45 ACPs.

I went w/the .45 Super; as, for reloading purposes, allowed me to stay w/a large pistol primer.

Good shooting.
