The SR45 has a much better trigger.
ABNRGR said:I disagree. My Ruger P345R is totally reliable with any ammunition, a tack-driver, has an excellent trigger pull, and is very inexpensive and easy to take apart and reassemble. Your biggest problem lies in finding a holster.
Danger is no stranger to an airborne ranger.

I have found no other lightweight pistol more reliable and accurate. It has a safety lever (my requirement) and a hammer (strikers are for cops and gangbangers). I have had a couple and kept one for repelling boarders, wilded dogs, and such. Top-shelf corrosion resistance with stainless slide and internals. My KP345R even cycles CCI shotshells reliably, important if its the gun on me when some rattlebug doesn't take a hint. Although I don't hang trendy appliances on my pistols, the rail is un-obtrusive and smooth to the fingers.
The gun is similar in package to a Colt Commander, yet lighter and dare I say more reliable right out of the box. I have no complaints, aside for my affinity for a high-viz front sight.
I would recommend a P345 to anyone serious about a plastic-framed gun, period. I believe it is one of Ruger's BEST results in a man-killing pistol design.
