Tell how great your P90 is. The P90DC became my CCW after carrying the P97 for several years. The P97 is an outstanding Firearm. The main reason the P90 took it's place was the Metal Frame and heavy construction. My P90 carries better for me than the P97 because the Grip is thicker, and in a Milt Sparks VM2HS holster, lays in a FBI cant against my body and the grip isn't as obvious as a P97. I carry it all the time, and almost never notice it. I have Suspenders and carry a Magazine, Flashlight, and Folding Belt Knife on the off side under a loose untucked shirt. I have no doubts that when I pull the trigger of my P90 that it will fire, even though the P97's were the same way. The Ruger KP90DC is my #1 Firearm.
You know, R2N, you might becoming addicted to Rugers. Good looking pics and target! Beats what I have hands down.
I didn't think much of the Ruger P-series until I fell into a deal I couldn't turn down on a 1998 P90DC. They felt blocky. Even though a couple of folks told me they were good shooting pistols, I sniffed and had no interest. Took the "deal" pistol to the range thinking if I didn't like it I could recoup what I paid. Looks and the "gun counter" test are downright deceiving. Feels good when you shoot it and the bullets have a habit of going about where the thing was pointed when you pull the trigger. I had the urge to buy an M&P45 to go with my M&P9. After shooting the P90, the M&P moved to the back burner.
My pic doesn't match yours but, not bad for an old used pistol.
The target below was my second time out. I frankly haven't treated it fairly. No "good" ammunition, just my handloads. I shot the target alternating with 5 rounds of 185 gr lswc, 200 gr lswc and 200gr cmj. I shot this after shooting my 22/45 and PT1911B. I need some work learning the trigger, but I'm pleased where most of the 70 rounds went at 15 yards.
Thing is, I don't have any Safe Queens. I shoot everything I have. This just so happens to be my favorite and goes with me everywhere. I would hate to lose it, but if my, or one of my family's life was on the line, I would use it just as quick as any other one I have. I just hope that never happens.
That grip you see is a Hogue wraparound grip. Most of your major big box sporting goods stores sell them (Bass Pro, Gander Mtn, Cabela's) or you can order them from midway, brownells, etc. or directly from hogue I believe. Also may be able to order them from Ruger's site.
