Thank you!!

I had seen two of these already....but the prices were way too high. The gunbroker.com link was worth exploring....but they say my account has been closed. (probably because I've never ever used it! )

More picture goodness.....post polishing!:



Looking more alike every day!

Excellent pair.

My KP90DC was my first gun and when I bought it I didn't know jack about pistols. Luckily it has been dead nuts reliable and even though I don't shoot it much anymore I am not willing to part with it.

P89 9mm/30Luger

Recently joined the P89 club with this dual barrel special edition (5000 made in 1994). Love to shoot the pistol especially in 30 Luger caliber for which I already handload (Luger 1920 Commercial pistol in my avatar). WB

I would really like to get my hands on one of the P series in 40. I had one of the very first P85s, got it in a special LEO offering and wish I'd held onto the little tank. I've always wondered if the P series 40 might not be the perfect 40 in terms of indestructibility and heft.

I have been lucky and have picked up a few of the P series at great prices.

The P85 in 9mm a few weeks ago and just recently a P91 in 40 s&w. Just waiting on it to be delivered to my FFL guy ... My P944 in 40 s&w DA/SA is a great shooter. I also have a P944 in 40 s&w DAO is a good shooter but not a terrific range gun because of the constant hard pull. But bench it and she is spot on!

Does the P944 handle the 40 recoil better the polymer guns? Or have you had a chance to compare?

Hell yeah! I had a Glock 22 which is a full size gun but weighs next to nothing compared to the Ruger P944. I sold the Glock because I hated the recoil/ muzzle flip. ( I kept my 9mm Glock which handles really well.)
I like the Ruger , it is heavy, but with a good handle on it, it is accurate, and will soak up the recoil better. Add a hogue rubber grip and you'll appreciate how much better you will shoot.

I like the grips ... how does feel in your hand when you shoot? does it tend to slip?
