    Ruger p94

    I have the p94 and I've had great luck with it. I was a revolver shooter and the Ruger was my first semi. Got great groups with it right out the box. I think Ruger makes a good product and I've shot about 2000rds through it and it just asks for more. Eats anything. But it's a tank, great home defense gun but for carry too heavy. Wouldn't trade for anything.

    Took my first CCW license course with my P85 way back. Loved it. Sold it to a friend. Wish I had it back, of course.

    P-89

    Got a P-89 that is a true Ruger....solid, strong, accurate, and fun to shoot.

    Do you still have contact with the engraver? I could get attached to my p-90 to do up.

    One of my favorite Rugers was my P93 - it was absolutely reliable and I was accurate with it. But it was heavy.



    Eventually the other guns in my collection got the lions share ofthe use and I traded it in.

    I've toyed with getting another Ruger, perhaps an 95, but haven't done it yet.

    The first semi-auto I fired was a P89. A few years later I went shopping for one and fell across the P345.

    I was never a big fan until the P93/P94 came along... their grip frame just felt more "right" in my hands. I still think the P95 is the best value going in a service size 9mm pistol... ditto the P97 in a .45 ACP.

    Here are two of my favorites:

    Be aware that it probably will not be your last. Guns are like crack. Once you get addicted, that is it.

    Back in the Ruger family - my new P95

    Lighter than my KP93, and has the new 'textured' grip panels. I am given to understand that this is the model the US government bought for issue to contractors in Iraq. The order was either 5000 or 8000 - either way, Ruger came through.

    I have read numerous articles of small buys the govt has done to arm the Iraqis. Rugers, Sigs, other brands. Last week, someone here posted something about some Walther P99s being bought for them. Seems like they have quite a mix of handguns.

    My source for the 8000 Ruger order was from a gun dealer I know who is not given to overstatement. Not saying that he got bad data, but he wasn't making it up.

    I recall hearing the 5000 number recently from a different source, perhaps the Guns and Ammo TV show. I could be wrong.

    Whatever the amount, I am fairly confident in saying that Ruger has supplied handguns to the US in some form, regarding Iraq.

    Doesn't change the fact that I'm glad I've got a Ruger again. My collection didn't seem complete without a nice American-made handgun.

    Found a source for the following:

    Originally posted by Dow Jones:

    Sturm Ruger To Supply US Army 5,000 P95 Pistols


    Firearms maker Sturm Ruger & Co. received a contract for 5,000 9mm pistols by the U.S. Army Tank-automotive and armaments command, Rock Island Arsenal, Ill.

    The contract is valued at $1.27 million, according to Chief Executive William B. Ruger Jr.

    In a press release Thursday, Sturm Ruger said the pistols to be supplied are Ruger KP95D models and incorporate a stainless steel slide and a custom polymer composite frame.

    These pistols will be made in the company's Prescott, Ariz., manufacturing facility.

    I believe Fed law says that for new handguns (at least 21). It is my understanding that in TX, however, a person 18 or older can buy one in a private sale, or be given one. Other states may be similiar.

    Now, I have had 18 year olds court me when I am selling guns. But, I have always refused to make a sale to anyone under 21. I have been sent the law via e-mail from a few of them, that is why I know about it. I still prefer not to do it. As for the CCW, I have heard that some states do give them at 18, but I think most do not.
