    Is the pistol in question new or used? I bought mine new and have run quite a few +p type loads through it in the past. If yours is used i would suggest having it checked out before shooting +p type ammo in it. One of the most accurrate loads i shoot in my 95 is the Cor-Bon 115 gn +p.I try not to shoot too many +p rounds as in previous years , as they accelerate the wear on these types of pistols.Ruger has made a reputation of building guns that are EXTEREMLY tough. But that is not to say they are in-destructable.

    I shot a neighbors 15 year old P89DC 9mm Ruger. He works for Homeland Security so he has shot +P+ rounds through it for a long time. The gun showed some wear but nothing unusual for an older gun. It was very accurate too, but I passed on it as it was too big to conceal without heavy clothing. Mike Z

    I always understood +P was fine tho in mine most ammo was std pressure. Even if a gun is rated +P tho - it will still IMO get beat up a bit faster over time if only +P in large amounts.

    The gun is built like a tank tho and I'd not expect it to complain in a very long time.

    I bought mine new a few years ago. I agree with P95Carry...it is built like a tank. Thanks for all the responses.

    My thoughts on +P and >+P are this.

    IMO +P and handloaded rds of the +P powers should be used for carry ONLY. This is why it is important to find a standard pressure(velocity) loading that will shoot to the same (or very close) POI using the same POA as your carry ammo. When you find this,buy up a bunch to use for practice,IPDA,etc. and only use the +P for carry.

    Now you gotta practice some with the carry(+P) ammo also. This way you will get the "real" feel of the recoil. This for your double taps,shooting from some of the retention positions,and simply for the confidence factor in your "combat" gear.

    Most of my training sessions will start with me drawing my EDC weapon and fireing 2 or 3 quick pairs into a COM type target. This is a real confidence builder IMO.

    Even if your weapon is "blessed" by the manufacturer for the +P stuff, I still feel that a steady diet of +P will put undue wear on any pistol or revo. --------
