I've had my p89 for a little over a year, and over 1500 rounds through it. I've never had any problems with it. The only reason I wouldn't buy a second one is that it is a bit bulky for concealed carry. But for plinking at the range, it is a great gun.
I would trust it for home defense, as well (100% reliable so far).
Never argue with drunks or crazy people.
I just a stainless P95DC and I have to say it's one of the best guns I have ever own and you can't beat the price. And I have over 40 handguns which 18 are 9mm auto's. This baby will be the last to go. The only con is it being fat and I don't know how they do it but my small hand gripe it great.
On the one occasion when I needed servicing, it found Ruger to provide prompt and courteous service.
My only complaint is bulkiness. When I went looking for a concealed carry weapon, I began looking elsewhere. Now I wonder why. Ruger makes some beautiful stainless revolvers that, while heavier than the alloy frames, are RUGERS. For value, Ruger is mighty hard to beat. And the P89 has earned a huge following for good reasons. It shoots like a dream.
Yes indeed. Rugers are not only competitively priced but extremely durable and well made. If the world ever went up in a nuclear mushroom the only two things to survive would be cockroaches and Ruger firearms - they're that tough.
I have owned my P94 (in 40 S&W) for 13 years and it has never had a failure of any kind and has excellent accuracy. I shoot it regularly and it is my house gun.
I would definitely recommend the KP95PR; It's inexpensive without being cheap, it handles +P and +P+ (part of the reason for its bulk; thicker chamber walls), field-strips in seconds, and there are hundreds if not thousands of people who will speak for its reliability and tolerance (one gun reviewer shot 3000 rounds through it without cleaning it before he had a failure). Suggestions: get the Hogue slip-on grip (cost me $11) and buy a lot of Winchester white-box FMJ for it; my gun loves those rounds, but with the 15-round magazine it is a hungry friend (100rds sounds like a lot until you realize it's only 6 full mags +10 rounds). People have reported good results with Blazer, but I have not yet shot it through mine and cannot comment.
I had a P-95 for a while. They are good guns. I got in a tight one year and had to sell mine.
my first handgun was a ruger p95. i love it. it is easy to take down, clean and is great at the range. i also shot it accurately right out of the box, which for being a beginner was a big boost in the learning curve.
I actually just got one for my first gun. I love it, it's simple to use and very fun to shoot. Looking forward to taking it to the range again.
