Today I hit a local gun/hunting shop as a "preview" for Black Friday. On Friday all used guns will be 20% off. I thought I'd go in and see whats in the case since I will probably be in Friday morning.

Well there I am looking at a Mint (99%) condition Ruger P90DC .45acp (Decocker only, no manual safety) in the box with 2 factory mags,a 10rd USA mag (junk), manuals, mag loading tool, lock and a cheap Fobus paddle holster. Price $289.

Yeah, I'll just take that right now I told the guy behind the counter.

Every now and then I will pull out my first semi-auto, my P89 and run her through her paces.

Each time I deeply appreciate how well built and functional this weapon is.

Great pick up on your part, enjoy.

I've never shot one, but they definitely appear to have a following. For that price, it would be hard to say no! Nice find!

My friend has a P90. I tried to get it to jam, filling it with a variety of different bullets. It ate everything without a single failure. It is a really built handgun, IMO.

I hope you will post a range report.

That would qualify as a super deal I would think. Ruger over built all of their P-series pistols. I didn’t sell any of them that I purchased. All in the safe. Some still get shot at a rare range session.

Neat. I remember reading about those in the gun rags when they were released (30 years ago!). Mas Ayoob's PD carried those for a number of years, he always raved about them in his articles.

that is a fantastic purchase.

I love my p89II (250$) a couple of years ago.


I ended up sending mine to adco to have the barrel extended and threaded.

It is a fun gun to shoot supressed.

Incredible bargain! Congrats!

The first time I shot one of these was during a concealed carry class and belonged to one of my students. I was shocked at how much I liked it. It recoiled less than any .45 I've ever shot and was really accurate.

I bought one for $300 about 2 1/2 years ago pretty much because it reminded me of a friend who loved the movie Desperado. And the P90s had a starring role. I'd never sell it because why? Wouldn't get much for it and it'll outlive me. I did learn that the 7 round magazines with the plastic followers are preferred as the metal McCormick style that gives it the 8 round capacity can chew up the aluminum frame a bit.

Yep I remember that as well.

They are neat pistols if you can get them for cheap. They ergonomics aren't anything to brag about but they built like a tank and shoot surprisingly well.

Very nice catch. I had one years ago and it shot amazingly. It has a Barsto barrel from the factory and it absorbs recoil better than any other 45 I have shot.

Awesome find. The Ruger P series are great guns. You were wise to get it at that price. I always love finding gems like that at my LGS. Congrats!

My first love in handguns was the Ruger P series.... to this day I can't tell you how many P95s I bought. And I given a fews away as of late.

That P90 is a hoss for sure.

Alright, at the risk of being labeled a heretic, I gotta ask. What’s so amazing about these guns? This is perhaps the third or four thread I’ve seen on a forum about the Ruger P-series in the past few weeks describing how people seem to absolutely love them. I don’t see the appeal. They’re ugly, heavy, they don’t feel like anything special in the hand the few times I’ve held one, and with a slew of other options out there that are just as accurate and reliable I don’t see why I’d want to spend my money on one unless I was super strapped for cash and it was the best option in my price bracket. Enlighten me.

The P90 was originally engineered to be a 10mm, so it is very stout. It's reportedly the least broken rental gun at ranges. It reliably feeds everything. You can drop it in the campfire without melting it (...). It's surprisingly accurate. It doesn't require extractor tension tweaking, or careful lubrication, or expensive magazines. As the OP illustrates, it's half the price of other options, a great value. It doesn't have frills, won't win a beauty contest, doesn't have an aftermarket part base, but for a rock-solid worry-free working gun it's really hard to beat.

^^^Ruger built guns for the working man. His guns came with no frills,for the most part, but they work and work really well. Rugers are tanks and can take a lot more punishment then other manufacturers guns. They may not be the most aesthetically pleasing to some, but they are guns built to last and don't cost a fortune. I have a few Rugers and like them a lot. Have you shot a P90? I can guarantee it is the softest shooting 45 you can get.
