Remarks: The average price in most retail dealers is around $399.00 or less, making this a true outstanding find among the world of the .45 ACP. This weapon is easy for the novice to operate and the durability, and reliability greatly exceeds the expectations of an inexpensive firearm.

That round combined with the tried and true Ruger design of this pistol equals a first rate defender for a reasonable cost.

Great write up. I always look forward to these.

Is this the same Ruger you own?

SGT-MILLER 05-03-2009 01:27 AM

Nope. I own a Ruger P95PR 9mm.

I would really like to own one of these models, though. I just need to find one for sale (they go quick once they hit the shelves...lol).

Now, where have I seen this before?...

Hey Mark how does the firearm handle in the .45 configuration? How is recoil? and would it fit in a smaller set of hands? My wife is looking for a new pistol to carry and she might like this one.

Here is what I can tell you. My wife shoots my P345 often. Because it's a single stack magazine, it fits well in most peoples hands. The P345 is reasonably light and easy to handle. The recoil is not rough even with +P loads. Most all 45ACP's have a "push" rather than a recoil and the Ruger P345 is no exception. Because the P345 uses a locking breach, it's easy cycle the slide. My wife handles this pistol like a pro, I bet yours would too.

I can highly recommend this pistol. It has never mal-functioned and it's fairly concealable.

The P345 will take some getting used to. Afterall is a 45ACP. But once you've mastered it, anything less is... is unacceptable.

How about the trigger? Long/average? Heavy/average?
