:wink: I really think it could be. Beautifully proportioned, it probably could/should have been chambered in .40S&W, and 9MM. But I think Ruger had a "Stiffy" at the time to produce a striker pistol so they could compete with Glock. I think between the SR-9 and the P-345 the "45" is the better gun. What do you guys think?
