Thought it might be interesting to see how many Ruger P Series Fans that are on the Forum so far. I have 2 Ruger KP97DC's and my Wife has a KP345. I don't run other gun Mfg's down and I think Ruger makes an excellent gun for the price. Let's hear what you have and what you think about it? :-D

Rugers are good reliable, dependable, and rugged firearms. They, however, in my opinion, need some refinement in the ergonomics department. Iwould trust one without hesitation but would rather shoot a SiG.

I used a borrowed P89 to take my first CCW class in 1996. Nice gun. Almost got one shortly after, but I just didn't like the shape of the mag release - felt kinda sharp too.

It is a great gun for the price, though.

I have a P85, P90 and a P345. All have been reliable and good shooting pistols. Hard to beat for the money.

When Ruger first came out with the P85 I got one. It was a very early model that had the two piece barrel that they soon did away with but I was in love... I took it to the Tulsa Cherokee Nations Gun show and there was not a P85 there. Most of the dealers had not seen one yet. Every body was asking me to see it... I felt like I was ten feet tall with all of the attention I was getting...
It shot well, and I never had any problems with it... Later, I sold it to my Father when I was needing some cash... He carried it for years. After his passing, I couldn't bear to look at it, so I sold it to a friend...
I wish I had both the pistol and my Father back.

I consider Rugers to be very good handguns at great prices. I used a P85 MK II for a house gun for years before I switched to Glocks for that purpose. Regards, Richard :-D

My first gun was a P93DC with Nights sights and a hogue grip added, that I bought at a gunshow. I still have it. Great gun, completely reliable. Never, ever any issues at all. It still looks like new.

Good guns for the money and built like a tank but I had a hard time concealing all the ones I have had.That new P345 looks like it would be a good choice.

I keep hearing mixed things on that new one, even on the Ruger forum. I think they are still working ut the bugs on the 345. I almost bought one until I heard all the issues.

I have a P89, love the pistol, just put 80 rounds threw it today. 1400 rounds and no problems.
Will be geting a Springfield XD subcompact as soon as the paperwork is complete, for my concieled cary gun. Would cary the P89 but to big for the summer.
When is Ruger going to make a subcompact?

I have the P345 and it's a great gun. I like it better than my Sig P239 but I like the Glock trigger system the best so the P345 does not see a lot of range time.

My son has a P345. He has had some trouble with. It's back at Ruger for repairs again. He's in N.C. with the Marines. I just bought a P89DC to keep in the Pick-Up for fishing trips & other outdoor fun.

I once had a P-90, shot low.

My only purchase of a Ruger auto was a P90. It for some reason hit low. Ruger = great wheel guns. Love' em. :shock:
