    I Finally found me a Nice used Ruger P89dc gun at the gun shop today and couldnt resist, my brother had one and in fact it was the first handgun i ever shot when i was 17. Am so happy and cant wait to get to the range. And since my b-day is next month, i think i will have to ask for some ammo and some more Mags

    That gun is a tank!! I had one back in the early 90s and it never missed a beat. You will be very happy.

    It tends to like real 9mm ammo. Stay away from weaker ammo. If you have problems with a brand just stay away from it..

    Have fun and we require pics, or it never happened.......

    Fobus holsters are great holsters. I bought one for a P226 back when they first came out. Back in the days before everyone put rails on pistols. I bought it for $11.00. I wish they still cost that much. Even at just under $30.00 they are still pretty cheap.......

    Well worth the money.

    I carry a fullsize Glock too. Compact versions are not all that much more concealable from my experience. I went from a G26 to a G19 to a G37.

    You should be fine with it in a good holster......
