Ruger P345 KP345PR .45 ACP

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

We thought the Ruger was a fine handgun, well worth a look by those who need a DA pistol. The Ruger was surprisingly easy to hit with during DA/SA drills, and the KP345PR did nearly as well as a 1911 shot for reference, once we had practiced with it.

The P345 had clearly visible white-dot sights, a hand-friendly top, and pleasant lines. The ambidextrous safety dropped the hammer, so first shots have to be DA unless you cock the hammer.
