Hello to everybody. I'm a long-time Ruger owner, and participatant on "the other" Ruger forum (there I'm known as "P94/GP100"). I just became aware of this forum, so I thought I'd join in. I actually carried a P85 on active duty as an Army officer back in the early 1990's (the fact that I was a) a field-grade officer and b) a Group XO probably had just a tad to do with my ability to choose my own PDW!). Currently I'm a Realtor in Washington state, and an active IDPA and GSSF participant; in fact, I recently used my new P89 in our recent November IDPA match-some of you may have read about it on the other forum. Although I've had numerous Rugers (let's see...P85, P89, P89TH, P90 Police Special, KP97, SP101, 3 GP100's, Security Six in stainless, all-weather Mini-14, Vaquero 5 1/2" stainless in .357, M77 RSI in .308, and a P944TH are the ones that come to mind). Currently, I have my P89, a GP100 4" that has been extensively gone through by Chris Peters, my 4" stainless Security Six (with Trausch grips, which were also discussed at length on the other forum). I'm glad that I discovered this forum, and I'm looking forward to participating.
