Correct me if I'm wrong, but the "p" in the p series is for polymer, just speculating. My p345 has a slender grip that I like, because I don't have bear-man paws. It's rather big and heavy still though, but I carry/carried it a lot for open carry. I'm getting away from open carry in the city though, too much attention and too much can go wrong. Long story short, I carry my LC9 everywhere when I'm not working. Used to carry the lcp, but am thinking of selling it.(LC9 is that much better) My p345 for hiking or jeeping, and it sits on my nightstand. My shotgun sits in the safe(was my grandfather's) when I get the cash to just blow on another gun, it may be a home defense shotgun, again, I think it's the mossberg 500? With the AR adjustable stock. My wife grabs the lcp when she goes for walks, but I would prefer that she take the lc9! I don't like the 1911s very much, because it's such a large gun in my hand, I can't reach the slide release comfortably with one hand like I can with the ruger. The grip is just bigger. I still want one though, just because!
The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!
