I believe that if the Ruger P345 were designed correctly, in particular, the Magazine Disconnect, and did not damage internal parts if "dry fired" without the magazine inserted, that many would not mind this "feature", including myself. The problem is, that if the damage does happen, and the magazine disconnect performs a "false magazine out" condition, caused by a damaged/deformed Magazine Disconnect, Item 6 in Figure 1.1, this pistol will not fire, and in a critical situation, this can be deadly, thus categorizing this firearm as unreliable for possible "life and death" scenarios, occasionally going "click- no bang" during a "false magazine out" condition.
If the rear sight is "cleaned", however, the pistol can be made reliable, "click- bang" 100% of the time, making this pistol one of the finest carry weapons available today. Items number 6 and 7 in Figure 1.1 are the Magazine Disconnect components...

Warning: It is VERY important that if you do "clean" the rear sight for your personal safety, that the pistol is returned to "factory" condition before transfer or sale, or a liability against you may occur.

A warning was added on 1-23-06, Page 17 of the P345D Users manual, on Ruger's web site...
