Nelson, the 345's suffer a "click no bang" syndrome due to poor design in their magazine disconnector. Fire control parts would be damaged to the point that they would no longer allow the pistol to fire. Rugers solution? Add instructions not to dry fire with no magazine inserted. IMO any pistol so easy to damage to the point it won't fire should have never been dumped on the market. As for "teething problems" Ruger should do their research and development in house before bringing a pistol out for sale, not expect the customer to do it after purchasing. Ammunition costs too much to do Rugers testing for them. I may sound overly critical, I have good reason. I've had more than my share of issues with 345's that customers have brought back time and again for us to send back to Ruger. It gets old, old enough that we no longer promote or sell Ruger pistols.
