    It's a perfect size for the smaller hands of a female officer...everything is within reach without feeling like you're stretching or straining, & it fires smooth & easy...I love it!

    Hey this is a nice gun, but when will Ruger stop making all the handguns looking alike i mean i can place a P89 rite next to my P90 and there is little to no difference other then Cal. i mean if this is your personel home defense weapon this can cause some serious problems grabbing a pistol and a mag in the dark, thats if your like me and keep one hidden all over the place! But its still a really nice piece!

    I carry this weapon as well as the Glock 22. I love them both and both have never failed me in their honorable service to me. I take very good care of both and they are practically the only two weapons on the market today that will fit my hands comfortably.

    This is my baby. My P-94 .40 is my duty weapon of choice. Off duty too though I normally opt for my P-95 DC 9mm off duty. Lighter and more accurate. My .40 has a slight drop, I'm going to have the sights worked on, and the pattern is a little more spread than my 9mm. At 15 meters I can consistantly put at least 8 in the head shot, the other 2 are close enough to give the target religion. The feel, weight and balance are all great. The lack of recoil is a plus for my skinny arms and bad shoulders. I've had over 3000 rnds through mine without a missfire. The first time I fired it, it roared "respect me" and I have ever since. I love this gun, as with all my P-series Rugers. It just fits. I have outfitted all my Rugers with the slip over "condom" grips to make them all feel the same and fit my hand better. I don't have big hands but I don't like the feel of a small gun. This is and will forever be my Toy of choice.

    It is a fairly decent shooting weapon but if it jams or breaks you could use it as a boat ancor. Off balance too heavy

    I'm primarily a Glack person, but I have to say I have always loved the look and feel of the P89 and P94. Qualified with it at PD for an off-duty carry, right out of the box!!

    This one is hard to get a close group, during rapid fire exercises. Good stopping power. But, I switched to the Ruger P90 .45 ACP. Qual. a consistent 290 out 300!

    It's so perfect enough to put under your shirt. But, it would'nt be one of the guns I would use to get a bad guy.

    I have the predecessor to the p94, the P91DC. My father passed the gun down to me as it was the first pistol I ever used. To this day the gun still shoots like a dream.

    Its about as dependable as anything I have ever owned , when you grab it you know it. Not alot of plastic, only in the grips , works flawlessly after 1000 rds. Its a little heavy but thats a good thing when it comes to getting back on target - recoil is dampened alot due to heft. Its concealable although I do reccomend a shoulder sling if possible. If your carrying it on the hip it can seem a little big after a while. It comes with 2-10RD clips and the exchange is very quick once you have done it a few times. The breakdown could not be any easier , no tools reqd. Its a snap to clean and is simple to re-assemble. All in all , for the occassional shooter :ie; home defense , civilian conceal boat or glove box , its really a great choice .
    Very Very good warranty in the busisness
    I wish I had bought it sooner.

    buy it and put on a set of hogues. i went to the accademy with the .45 acp version. have shot the .40 too. i cought a lot of flack from the range instructor for carrying a "boat anchor" after i challenged him to a shoot off at standard sillouettes on the hundred yard line ... lets just say the teasing stopped.9 out of 10 shots hit home at 100 yds. not even my glock or hk can do that.
    and a combined 5000 rounds out of the two calibres of p series i've had one jam - a dud round.

    I love those Ruger P=series pistols they are built like at TANK. The only reason I traded mine was because of the weight and the pain it was to Conceal Carry.

    The .40 cal version Has great stopping power and accurately Its also well balanced Though a bit heavy the weight helps return it smoothly to target again after recoil.

    I know I like the Ruger p-85,p89, and p-90; because you can not stop any one of them. they fire everytime you shoot them. they are a little heavy and made for big handed people but overall it is a cheap and strudy hand gun

    Ruger manufactures excellent firearms. I bought a P94 from a police academy buddy who was in need of some quick cash. I bought the weapon for my wife and both she and I have enjoyed firing it. We already had the P90 .45ACP and knew that a Ruger pistol would be reliable. The P94 has been my wife's weapon of choice for concealed carry. My only complaint about these pistols is that they are bulky. They can be difficult to conceal and can get heavy as a duty weapon.

    This is the most common duty carry firearm for the Bureau of Prisons. Did not like it much. I found it was quite heavy and if you had big hands, the weapon did not feel right. The Ruger P94 is the suplus handgun for the US Military. As a federal agency most of the weapons were obtained or modified from military use.

    I am very pleased with this weapon. Extremely easy to clean, well balanced and fires fantastic. This weapon is ambidextrous as well so anyone can pick-up use it. The only issue I have had so far is finding accessories for it since some gun stores aren't carrying for Ruger so much. But for you Glock folks, mine is all metal and just as effective.
