heres a very popular guide on leaguecraft for gangplank

http://leaguecraft.com/strategies/guide/7935-how-to-not-suck-with-gangplank.xhtml

it has pretty good strategy and builds.

normally executioners calling shouldnt really be bought unless you're having a really tough time against healers. there are a bunch of good crit items to try. i like the ghostblade a lot on him with his naturally strong movespeed

Look for ricklessabandon's guide. I don't know where it is. I use a different build than his (I really like rushing trinity force), but his guide is great though.

Just a few tips though:
-Don't rush IE unless you have crit runes, otherwise its not cost effective. Make sure you have 20 or 30% crit before buying IE.
-Youmuu's is a great item for GP and should be in most builds.
-If you want extra movement speed, don't get phantom dancer, get trinity force instead.
-Ionian boots are your friend
-building a bunch of crit chance won't make you effective without armor penetration and damage

Good build: towerhug
Never chase

You'll do fine with any troll-build as long as you do that.

I play gangplank for a long time now, never wrote a build for him thought.
The build i pick for gangplank:

Runes:
Red - Armor pen
Quint - Armor pen
yellow - crit chance (just to make it a bit more common to accidently hit with a crit)
Blue - Mana regen / 5 / level

mastery's about 21/0/9

First item is mana crystal with 2 health pots.
after 900 gold, return and buy sheen (+ health pot if needed).
then rushing trinity force,
- ghostblade (you'll do abnormal damage on squishy's atm)
- infinity edge or anything else

i pick teleport and flash for most of the time, just because i dont want to walk back to the lane when i can get sheen . flash i perfect for "a run away low" or get out of jail free card.
