Nice report, Bags. I've been curious about the P345. Is yours a DAO, or is it DA/SA? I'm under the impression that this gun is DA/SA. How is the trigger?

The trigger reminds me of the M16A2. It's not a "hair trigger", it takes some steady pressure. It "feels" consistant to me. I wish I could give you a better answer, I just want you to know where I am coming from.
class3- you are welcome.. feel free to send anything as payment
rocky- it was 50 ft... and yeah I know it's LONG way, but I would like to have some sort of single head shot at 50 ft to brag about..lol You know, that range story.

Pretty darned OK Bags - and thx for the feedback. I have a P95 and 97 - which are not hugely different and if you can get used to that long DA pull with practice then that is very useful.
Familiarity and further practice will see your groups shrinking but you will almost always get ''fliers'' even so. Now might soon be the time to extend your training to include draw practice, shooting from positions other than standing - maybe even work up to shots on the move.
Keep working at it and remember that the more ''muscle memory'' the better - once thing get tense, fine motor skills dispappear. Oh and also - pay some attention to shooting with both strong hand only and weak hand only. Practice reloads with both hands too and also clearance drills.

In that first picture of the pistol it looks like it "bit" you from the double mark on your hand.

P95- yeah I am a VERY BAD shot with my left hand. And now that I have a holester, I am working on my draw in the house. UNLOADED gun of course.

I don't know about your gun, but your monitor... you need an upgrade.
SONY TRINITRON is the only way to go. :D
