I just recieved a Ruger P90DC .45 in a trade. Actually, more like a gift, as the previous owner wasn't very pleased with it, and kinda forced me to take it. At 50 bucks, it gets gift status. I haven't heard much about these, and from what he said, they weren't that great.
Since I never believe what I hear, I headed out back to my range and put 200rds through it. I used up every reload, unknown and old .45 ammo I had laying around: ball, hollow point, wad and semi wad cutter. This thing ate everything, hit exactly where I was aiming, and didn't produce one hiccup. While the DA trigger takes some getting used to, and the take up on SA does also, once I figured out, it became a downright pleasure to pull the trigger. And about the trigger, it's as wide as my Gold Cup, so my muscle memory is even pleased.
While I'm a life long Colt 1911 shooter, this Ruger has kinda won me over. If something was to happen, God forbid, and I had to turn over a gun, it would be better to let go of this thing than one of my beloved Colts.
I can't understand the negatives. Are there any problems I can expect?

I have the KP90 with the manual safety, basically the same thing. Mine is pretty darned accurate, and like you said, it eats anything you wanna feed it. It's one I like to leave in the pickup.
Plus, if you run outta ammo, you could really clobber a bad guy with it, as it would make a good club too! :)
I've got a p94 .40 cal. The slide to frame fit is a bit loose but barrel to slide lockup is tight. It's a solid shooter and every bit as reliable as my Glock26 or xd 45. Mine actually has a pretty decent trigger. It has a very smooth double action pull. I don't carry it at all, it was the first centerfire handgun I ever purchased. I do pull it out of the closet and shoot it once in a while. It's heft and meaty grip make it a pleasure to shoot but not so much to stick in the waist band.
