I like this gun. I was reluctant to go with a polymer framed pistol but after putting hundreds of rounds downrange I'm a believer now. It's just 5 or 6 ounces lighter than the P90 but the difference becomes more apparent the longer it's on your hip. I used +P 230 gr JHP rounds for personal protection and Winchester "white box" 230 gr FMJ and JHP for skill maintenance; my KP345 has never jammed. It misfired once when the folks at "Wolf Ammo" forgot to put powder in one of their rounds...the primer went off and pushed the bullet into the barrel; had to knock it out with a copper punch. I don't buy "Wolf" brand anymore. The recoil is that of any 45 cal but is consistant and easily managed. It is well balanced; not at all "top heavy" as might be expected given the steel over polymer construction. It is a double action/single action which means it can be carried with the hammer at rest; I only have to pull, thumb the safety and squeeze. If it was single action only I'd have to either 1) rack the slide to chamber a round and cock the hammer OR 2) carry the pistol "hot" with the hammer cocked and a round in the chamber. It is very easy to strip and clean so it it more likely to be stripped and cleaned. This gun is a good value...lots of bang for the buck.
