Ruger PC9

Hey all anyone else out there having fun with there PC9 ?.
These well made little carbines are just plain fun , whether for plinking cans ,small game at moderate ranges or whatever.I have just ordered some Warne quick detachable rings for mine and intend to mount a little Bushnell 1.5x4 pwr scope on it and use it for a paddock gun for hares and Rabbits off the back of the ute.

Thumbs up i have the big brother..PC4 carbine

i had a pc 9 that i used to target shoot out to 100 yards with. Then i wanted more power , so i sold it and got a ranch rifle. No regrets! I still have a PC4 in mint condition, original box, from 1997 one of the first 3,000 built. I love the power of the 40 cal. but it doesn't have the range of the 9mm. My pc4 will shoot up to 50 yards all day...75 max. The PC9 would hit 100 yards.
They are well built heavy duty. Enjoy....update us with some photos if you have time...love to see what your shooting at

That sounds like good buying...well done ....there getting pretty rare over here and i am sure they are in your neck of the woods as well,its a great pity Ruger discontinued there carbine range (the PC9,PC40 and Deerfield),as with most discontinued lines they always seem to be more popular when they stop production.

I shot it and bought it today, it was in really good shape.I love it. Barely any recoil at all and every shot was center mass with just using the stock peep sight. Great rifle and im glad I finally bought one and got a great price. And I can get free ammo for it at work since we carry .40. They are rare here I have only seen 2 at local gun shops in the last few years.

Awesome Konatown i just ordered some quick detachable Warne rings and i want to run a little 1.5x4 pwr Bushnell on it,it came with std irons and an after mkt picatinny rail system but being an auto i didnt really trust that system not to move under rapid fire so i have gone for the Warnes they have the scallop to fit into the ruger system and being quick release should be handy to change between scope to iron sights should the need arise.

i wish they still did make them. i'd buy another one!

when ruger was selling p series guns to police depts. in the 90's they thought that they could sell a matching pistol/carbine combo that would increase the range of an officer 0n the street instead of a shotgun. They made them from 1997-2007, but only made about 20,000 in 9mm and about 15,000 in 40S&W. They were not popular eneough because most police depts. stuck with shotguns,and moved on to Ar-15 rifles today.They usually didn't buy Ruger pistols anyways, they got Glocks and sigs instead. But when MP-5's were popular and 9mm was popular, they sold some to Police depts. My local PD has PC4's in their trunks and carry Beretta 40 cal. pistols.
The only p series pistols left are the P95 and the P944 that will accept PC9/PC4 magazines. So i wish they still made them, because they would still be current today. They shoot great, but are very heavy, and i heard they were expensive to produce, so they are now.....history!

They get gobbled up fast when they are found. Every once in a while on the local (for me california) board they show up for sale and disappear almost instantly.
