Quality

I have heard many, many people say that this gun is really crappy and falls apart while firing. My father had a Ruger KP90 that would shoot 3 at a time, which is clearly very unsafe-S&Wshooter 01:28, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
I rented both a Ruger P89 and a Ruger P345 (the polymer framed version of the P90) at a shooting range a few weeks back. The P89 handled very well while the P345 jammed on every third shot. Given that these were rental guns they were probably much more well worn than a similar gun under different circumstances, so issues with the pistols probably have more to do with wear than inherent quality. -Anonymous
I have had a ruger p94dc for a couple years now and it only jammed on me once because of bad ammo
I heard a professional firearms instructor say once that the people who take his course (police and civilians alike) bring in all kinds of pistols including Glocks, XD's, Beretta 92 series guns, USPs, and many others, all of which seem to jam or malfunction with more-or-less the same frequency. The one exception he mentioned were centerfire Ruger pistols which he said he has never seen malfunction.
I owned a P89 that was a fantastic shooter. Way too bulky for concealed carry, but I fired the thing every weekend for a decade and never had a single malfunction. It's built like a tank as well. Very solid. The P95 however, I didn't care for. It was very plastic feeling, very toy like, and I didn't enjoy shooting it at all.
The P-series are known for being extremely reliable guns and they still see security and police use today. In my experience I have never seen a malfunction with one. (Votesmall (talk) 12:21, 6 November 2018 (EST)

P93/P94 capacity

Does the P94 model only hold 10 rounds? Most specifications I've read on it seem to say so, however, I wasn't sure if that was because it was using restricted capacity magazines or if it was purposely built for that capacity due to the Clinton gun ban. -Anonymous

My P94 holds only ten rounds but it is a 40 cal. I believe the 9mm P94s hold 15.--Mpe2010 23:52, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
The .40's capacity is 11 rounds unrestricted. The 9mm capacity is 15 rounds unrestricted. Both are ten rounds restricted (Votesmall (talk) 12:18, 6 November 2018 (EST)

Tattoo

I'm gonna get some tattoos in the next couple o' months, and the first I'm gonna get is the logo of Ruger. I mean I wouldn't normally take a tattoo of some company's logo, but the Ruger logo is so friggin' cool (and iconic ;) ). Of course mine's gonna be without the copyright sign, and I think I'm gonna leave the "R" out. -- Warejaws 21:32, 11 August 2010 (UTC)
