    Glock 20, if you are wanting a 10mm and can afford to shoot it.

    Otherwise, what do you currently have and what are you looking for the gun to do for you?

    Carry, range, home defense or ????

    P345 alternatives:

    SIG P220 (regular, carry, and compact)
    Springfield XD 45 (service, compact)
    Glock 30

    Redhawk 44...nah, just get it!

    The Glock 20 is a great gun too.

    The P345 is not a bad gun, but i've never been much of a Ruger centerfire semi-auto sort of gun.

    I too would recommend a Sig P220 Certified Pre-owned pistol instead of the Ruger.

    Since you are considering a Glock 20, how about a Glock 21 or 21SF for a .45ACP?

    I dunno what it is I just can't warm up to the sigs. I don't have a real good reason... Just didn't like the one that I shot i guess.

    I have a p90 that I love, so I thought the p345 might be a good companion. I hear they are quite a bit thinner. I've never handled one though.

    Well, you know... it pretty much depends on what you want it for.

    If you want decent feedback, set your parameters a bit more clearly.

    Grasshopper. What do you want to do with it?

    Pick up the new Ruger SR9. You can be the guinea pig.

    I vote for the G20. I've always wanted a 10MM myself. If you lived over here, I'd say get a silencer... That's what I'd do w/ an extra $600..:)

    Depends on why these guns appeal to you...I personally would go w/ "or" but if the Ruger semi auto is calling you, get that :scrutiny:

    I would get the Springfield 1911 GI version. This would be a great handgun to send out to have customized in the future when the time is right.

    Wow what a interesting triad from which to choose

    The .45+p is a legendary manstopper. The 10mm can do what the .45 can do, and gives you enough extra power to hunt, though in the right gun the .45 can match the 10mm. The 20 makes sense for a camp gun in black bear country as well as the urban jungle. Ammunition is harder to come by and is more expensive than the .45 or .44 (for me, anyway). But if you don't need bear protection, it is a nice round. Now if you want something that can truly do it all, from stopping bad people to hunting and grizzly bear defense, the Ruger .44 Magnum (+p+) is the most prudent choice of the 3.

    I wound up with two guns- a .45 as a BUG to the .44 I think I am well covered on the streets or in the woods. I chose the .44 and .45 over the 10 simply because of ammo cost and the fact that I can make my .45 almost equal the 10mm, and the .44 trounces it in power and versatility.

    The gun is just too awesome. I'd take my P99 over a 1911.

    Go do some searched for "P99" on this site, The Firing Line, Handgun Forum, Glocktalk, and some other sites... U will see all positive comments - And, I'm known as the P99 fanatic everywhere...

    I have gotten 15 people to buy them, 13 of them online (2 locally). Almost all of the online people did it w/o trying the gun first - just went off of my incessant praise for the gun. None regret it.
