    Stopped at the gun store today!

    I went shooting with my grandson this morning. I have been looking for a new .45 (had pretty well decided what I wanted), so stopped at the LGS on our way home.

    What a madhouse! There were more people in that store today than I have seen in all my previous visits combined. It must be because SC is having a sales tax free weekend for guns.

    Anyway, I walked out with an LNIB Ruger P345. It is slightly longer than my current EDC, an FNP-9, but the grip is much slimmer. It should make a great carry weapon. One side benfit; it fits the same holsters as the FNP-9 perfectly. I stopped later at Walmart and bought a couple boxes of FMJ ammo and will be back at the range Monday morning.

    I had an opportunity to shoot my oldest son's P345 a few months back. While not a big fqn of Ruger semi's, it seemed to be well made and handled nicely. If I were in the market for a poly .45 I'd definitely give it a second look.

    Congrats on the new gun. You will be happy to know that the same holster will fit both FNP9 and Ruger 345........at least mine do.

    I did some checking of my various holsters after I originally posted. My TT Gunleather OWB and my Galco M7X OWB both work for both guns. My AKJ/Concealco IWB and my two RocketMan (rmholsters) IWB and Paddle do not work for the P345. The location of the takedown lever is the reason; it protrudes more on the P345.

    Sounds like an excellent day! Shooting with the grandson tops the list. I'm sure you'll find good times with your Ruger P series pistol.
