    My new Ruger KP345DPR

    Just got this gun. This model has a decocker which returns to the 'ready' position when released, not the decocker/safety usually found on these. It also has the Piccatinney rails, which I probably will never use.

    I already love it! Had it out to the range, in the wind and cold and spitting rain. The targets were bobbing around and up and down in the wind , but I fired several 4" groups at 25 yrds, right on for elevation, and a couple of inches to the right, It functioned flawlessly with WWB. I am anxious to try it again when the weather is not so nasty; I am sure I can shoot a smaller tighter than 3" groups in spite of my old eyes. Recoil is not noticeable, but I am used to .45's.

    I have owned and shot the 1911's since the early '70's, and loved and respected them. I've had Gold Cups and Commanders and even Aces, and had them stock through modified like the $2000 guns you can buy today. I prefer this Ruger for anything except target work. I find it to be that good.

    obxned, if you are happy, I am happy. I have never had a problem with my P85 MKII, P90, or P97. Sadly, I have never owned/fired a P345 and I wish I could say I had. Regards, Richard

    I've had my Ruger P345 almost a year now. Not one single bobble. I'm at about 2500 rounds through it now. Qualified for CHL with it. Probably the most accurate handgun that I own. Call me nuts but the recoil seems to be only slightly more than 9mm. Carry it sometimes but recently bought a Taurus Millennium Pro PT 111. Lots smaller. I'll probably switch back and forth.

    All of the posts I have read that stated where their first bullets went said they went to the right, mine did too. How many other P345 owners had their first shots go right?

    Congratulations on the new Ruger. I haven't tried the 345 but have owned several of their other models and every one of them were built like tanks. It should serve you well for many years to come.
