Hey Gunny. I have a P95, KP89DC & my son has a P345. They are all good pistols. The 345 lives in N.C. I haven't shot it much. My GF has the P95 & is very good with it. That leaves me with the P89. It is my personal favorite of the Rugers we have. :-B-:

Y'know what they say about S&Ws and Rugers, right? "Smith & Wesson is a Jewel and Ruger's a Tool". Well, that P90 is about the ugliest tool I ever loved!

I had shot one a couple of times and not given it much thought, but when it came time to shoot qualification for our CCL, there was no .45 in the safe that belonged to me BUT my buddy's P90 was there. N.M. has a rule that which ever caliber you shoot to qual is the largest caliber you may carry. In other words, you qual with a .45, you can carry .45 or smaller. Same rule goes for both pistols and revolvers. So I called my bud and asked if I could "borrow" it since it was already in my safe. "Sure", he said, and off we went to qualify. Danged if both me and my wife didn't ace the qualification course with that thing! A gun which we really hadn't spent any time with. So, yeah I'm impressed!

I think you have that mixed up
"S&Ws are for tools, Rugers are for the cool :cool: "

Have a P97DC (.45 ACP). Nice pistol - after you get past that first DA trigger pull (registers about 10 lbs on my scale!). Accurate and easy on the hands (a fairly soft shooter for a .45). Had only one problem (slide lock/take down lever working out of the frame after a few rounds) but Ruger sent me the part to fix it.

Carry it on duty as an alternative to my Springfield XD .40 service. Like it - nice pistol (not as pretty as the XD, in fact, downright ugly but it sure scares the be'jesus out of folks when it comes out of the holster!)

:lol:

I've got a P95DC and love it. It's dead-on accurate and as long as you keep it clean, especially the ejector spring, it won't jamb up. Mine got a little stuff built up where it grabs the head of the bullet and began to "stove pipe". A thorough cleaning with a tooth brush, Hoppes and some Rusty Duck cleaner cleaned it better than new. Runs like a machine. :--- Keep shooting.

I had used P-85 & P-95, both were good fun shooters, had to sell them to finance another itch. Still have a NIB P-95 in the safe, haven't decided what to do with it yet. Got a good buy in it $300 so it may remain a safe queen.

I thought it was a nice, little gun, but I sold it because I'm going to be putting the money towards something bigger and better.
So, what do you plan on purchasing?

I've got a P89DC and I just love it. I changed out the factory grip inserts for some beautiful wood ones and it dressed up a very ugly gun quite nicely.

I think what I love best about it is that you can literally use the thing as a hammer and it will perform flawlessly. It also eats just about whatever 9mm ammo you find laying around. I don't believe I've ever experienced a jam in it, and I've been shooting it for over ten years.

I have a P-89 I bought in 1997 or so and it runs like a charm. I can't remember any jams and it is as accurate as any of my nines with the exception of my Steyr, but it's miniscule..

I really should carry it or my Ruger 3-inch GP-100, I shoot very well with both and I have all the confidence I need in them.

Part of me says to buy a Ruger P-345, but my other side says to buy the Glock 23SF, I think that's the right model number, 45ACP in a slim frame...?

I had three Ruger semis. A P85 that I never could get a decent group out of, A KP89DC, that gave me WAY better groups, and a KP944DC that I was Deadeye Dick with. All three of them were built like tanks, and shot any kind of crapola ammo I cared to feed them with no malfunctions. But alas, the long sloppy trigger pulls on all three of them caused me to trade them all in. Polymer framed guns never thrilled me so no P95's or such for me.But for the three, I ended up with a SIG P299 Bitone with both the .40 S&W and 357 Sig barrels, and an FN Hi-Power. I would say I moved up in the deal.

I did not complete abandon Ruger, I still have a New Model Superblackhawk in .44 mag from them.
