I have a Ruger p345, and it's been 100% so far after several hundred rounds through it. The DA trigger pull is 'challenging', but the SA pull is quite nice...after a great deal of practice I can finally hit things with it too. :P i too have a p345. i like it. i shot an older bulky ruger a few years...
