    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.

    Talking The one I grab

    I have a p-85. Bought it new when they first came out. This is one gun that I have that I know will feed anything I give it. I have shot a lot of rounds through it and I have never had it Jam. My p-85 didnt see much oil for a time...5 years(my bad). But no rust and not one jam(evenwith out oil)
    I have picked up a few more rugers since then and I have't been dissapointed yet.

    P-85 Check

    I think all of the P-85's were recalled. There should be an Mk11 on the decock lever. If not call ruger and they will take care of it.
    If you do send it in you might walk away with some free stuff.

    I know that in Florida you can buy and own at 18. It's odd in this country that at 18 people have all the responsibilities given to them without many rights. I could never figure it out. Either they can be trusted or they can't. Why can they have it both ways?

    I hear from young soldiers all the time how it irritates them that they can bear weapons in a foreign country in defense of this nation but to defend themselves stateside would be criminal. You hear about soldiers returning from Iraq getting murdered all the time. Are they not worthy of defending themselves but civilians without the responsibilities or experience can at 21. I just don't know what to tell them.

    There's also an exemption in SRNY law that retired soldiers can be issued a permit if they're under 21. They'd have to do one of those 2 year contracts to do it.

    Thumbs up ruger p-series

    I have a p345 ruger now and have previously owned many p series rugers ,never had a problem with any of them.My p345 has a smooth action and the recoil is minimal it's new ergonomic design makes it nice for carry and conceal not to mention its a nicer looking gun then all the other p series: in my opinion anyway.I have had no problems with this gun what so ever.It comes with the full package including, mag loader- two mags w/slimline bumpers- and a ruger lock and case.This gun I believe is the best value gun on the market today.I paid 540.00 new.
