I am looking for a .45 ACP for carry. One well-recommended one, the Ruger P345, has been discontinued, according to Ruger's web stuff:http://www.ruger-firearms.com/Firearms/FAProdSpecsView?model=6648
Suggested equivalents?

I think thats only one model. They have three other models that look like they are still available on the website.

That's the decock only model and yes, that model has been discontinued. The gun is still available with a decocker/safety.

The P345 is probably the best buy in a .45 out there IMO. I picked up a used one for $350 on a lark and it has become one of my 3 main carry guns. At last count I had over 2000 rounds through it and it runs like a champ.

If you get one, you will definately want to consider putting a lighter hammer spring it it. It literally takes 2 minutes to swap them out and it will make a GREAT improvement to the double action trigger pull

Wolff springs has a 19,20 and 21lb spring set for $9.00. I run the 19lb one in mine

It can be found here http://www.gunsprings.com/SemiAuto/RugerNF.html#HammerSprings

I loved my 345. Just had to downgrade due to the little lady
