    I saw the ruger p345 on their website when it was new, and liked the looks, as far as plastic goes, but then I heard about that magazine disconnect and immediately wanted nothing to do with it.

    Now I hear that removing that horrible creation from an otherwise reliable pistol is as simple as removing the rear safety. I am interested again.

    What I would like to hear is something from newer purchasers or handlers of this pistol. Specifically, is the external safety a decocker, or a true firing-pin block? And assuming the disconnect is removed, would you trust it for ccw?

    I can't help much, but everything I've heard says that Ruger autoloaders are boringly reliable. Just don't drop any of the new ones... :eek:

    The SR9 and the LCP have been recalled. It seems they aren't neccesarily "drop safe". It's probably not that big of a deal. Ruger is just playing it safe.
