Both are good guns. The big difference is the grip. The 345 is a little slimmer than the 95 so if you need or a smaller grip the 345 would be good for you. But on the other hand if you like the 345 more and needed more grip you can always can put a slip on hogue with finger groves to fatten it up. Best thing to do would be find a GS or range to handle both and hopefully shoot both to see which one you would prefer. Also check out Rugerforum.com great place to go for Ruger info. Redhemi

ya thanks i actually went to a GS this weekend and looked at both of them i like the grip on the p345 but i like that the frame on the p90 is aluminum rather than composite feels better IMO im leaning towards the p90

I have a p345, had malfunctions with it originally, then had to polish the feed ramps to make it function right. No problems since then, although i havnt fired it much since i got my 1911
