Hi everyone. I've been shooting since the early 70's, have owned lots of firearms, quite a few of them Rugers, but have only been on forums for the last couple of years. I've been lurking here, reading up on the P345 I recently purchased so thought I should join. I have 2 Kimber 1911's at present, but wanted a cheaper ( $400-$500) .45 Acp. to leave in the truck,etc. A friend has a Springfield XD, nice shooter but I have a preference for pistols w/ hammers. Had a Glock 21 for a while but grip was fat for my average hands and the triggers on them aren't my favorite. Carried a Glock 10mm for almost a decade though, so I must have liked it somewhat. I saw a used P345 at a gunshow a couple weeks ago, so went home and read up on it. Comments were mostly favorable, so I went back the next day and got it. Like the feel of it, decent trigger, accurate as my 1911's, softer felt recoil. I was thinking I would do the magazine safety delete, but tried it at the range w/o a mag and it fired, so the previous owner must have already done it. I picked up a couple extra magazines, then started looking for a holster. I'm left handed, so that narrows my choices. I saw the Fobus on Ruger's website, but didn't see that it is offered in left hand. I had a Dillon leather holster that I had used for my large frame Glock, it almost fit, so I wet it, and as it dried overnight, repeatedly inserted it, and it fits good now. But wouldn't mind getting something with retention, also an IWB. I did a search here for holsters, but still not sure if the holsters for other large P series work for the 345. Anyone know of a company that makes left hand versions ? I'll probably order some Meprolight tritium sights and a Wolff 19 lb. hammer spring before long. Also enjoying my Gunsite Scout .308 I got a couple months ago.
