Hello all. I have been lurking for a while and finally decided to sign up. Until recently I didnt own a handgun . SWMBO always fussed a lot about guns in the house and I didnt want to make that my "Line in the Sand". Up until a few months ago the last time I had fired any guns was 30 years ago in the Navy. I took an Introduction to Handguns class a while ago and decided that having a gun makes sense. I have been shooting with a friend several times since then and really like the Ruger line. I am left handed and I like being able to release the magazine or put the safety on with my left hand and not having to switch hands.

I decided that the Ruger P89 was the gun for me. So.... I took the plunge and bought a brand new one. I felt that being my first gun, and the large learning curve ahead of me, a new gun would be better than a used one that may have some issues or just be worn. I am not sure it that is good logic but its what I used...

I put 150 rounds down range with it at 7, 11, and 15 yards. Felt great, worked great, and I actually shot pretty straight. I cant wait to hit the range again.

Oh yea... I celebrated the purchase with a cigar. Another "hobby" of mine.



Thanks to all for all the great information here.

Welcome from KY! You got a good gun there. My P89 has digested thousands of rounds with zero problems. And it is my understanding that Ruger has discontinued them, so you are lucky to get a one new! The supply of new ones will probably dry up quick, once word gets out that Ruger aint making them no more.
