Ruger P94, great bang for the buck!! (No pun intended)
I have a P94 and it is as good a shooter as my Sig2340 or my H&K USP40. I kinda think of it as a poor man's Sig, but don't want to discount it on it's own merit in any way. I use a Beretta 96 as a principal carry weapon and it is larger than the P94. I haven't experienced any problems with it as a CCW, but then I am a fairly large individual and have invested in some good quality leather. You will find that a Galco S.O.B. is an excellent choice under an untucked short sleeved shirt that is worn over a t-shirt. A Gould and Goodrich belt slide works very well also. Don't discount it as your choice for defensive carry due to it's size alone. A .380 placed well will stop a perp as well as a .50GI. It's all about shot placement and knowing when and when not to shoot. You have a great handgun, enjoy it and grow more proficient. Mine shoots very well as stated and has never had the first failure of any kind in around 2,500 rounds through the tube. If I had one observation, I'd like to see Hogue make some panel style grips for it and maybe a little thicker, big hands.
