I bought a Ruger P89 as my first semi-auto last spring.
I bought the gun because I liked the way it fired and my accuracy with it. The salesman tried to convince me I would love the Glock 9mm he shoved in my hand. But, I loved the P89.
I've never had any failures with the gun. There was no break-in period.
I think you've got a good gun there. Fun to shoot, reliable, accurate, eats cheap ammo. What more could you want?
Oh yeah, it doesn't conceal very well, although I managed to wear in IWB for a while.
Never argue with drunks or crazy people.
