    Talking I have a new Ruger P345 coming

    Last night I ordered a KP345(no rail).My dealer ordered it through Davidson's so I get a lifetime replacement warranty.
    The pistol cost me $480.00 tax included.Since I live in NY state I will submit my ammendment to the Judge on Tuesday and about a week and a half later I'll pick up my pistol.
    Now all I have to do is get a good IWB holster.

    Being that you can't dryfire without a mag, how do you an "unload and show clear" at an IDPA match? The matches I've been at we have to dry fire on en empty gun without a magazine (after inspection of course).

    Those P series guns aren't beauty queens but they're built like tanks. I'd be really surprised if you ever experienced a problem that fresh springs or mags wouldn't cure.

    rugers

    I have more than a few rugers, no auto pistols.
    I don't think you can go wrong with one,
    I can't speak of the pistols though.

    Decock lever would be the only way with the KP345 in order to not take the chance of messing it up. I can't believe they require you to dry fire your gun to show it's empty. Seems kinda strange to me. I'm not doubting you it just doesn't make sense to me. To me it would seem well enough to rack the slide three times, then (keep your thumb pressed up underneath the slide stop) check chamber with pinky finger to ensure that there is no round in the chamber. I'm not saying they are wrong. I just personally disagree.

    I don't dry fire anything. It just ain't natural. When you fire, you fire.

    The IDPA events I've been at. At the end of stage. Drop mag. Rack slide multiple times (ejecting round), lock action open, inspect for clear, let RSO (whatever the title is) inspect for clear. Then I have to release slide, point at safe direction (usually into ground downrange) and squeeze the trigger. Re-holster and then pick up my live round (EDIT: and magazine) from the ground.

    That's cool but I just don't get why you can't just use a decocker if the gun is so equipped. Especially after you've already done all the other stuff.

    Don't get me wrong I'm a firm believer in dry fire practice. I believe it to be an indespensable of the trigger control learning process.

    i got around the dry fire thing with snap caps. one in the chamber and one or more in the mag for slide racking practice.
