    New Guns!!!

    Just bought these today. The shotgun is a Mossberg model 88 12ga., and the handgun is a Ruger P89 9mm. My first handgun was a Ruger P89 and I sold it, and have always regretted selling it, and I found out that Ruger has discontinued making the P89, and I found out that one of the gun stores that I go to still had some new ones on hand so I couldn't resist it.

    Here are some pics:

    I like my P89. Never fails to fire when I pull the trigger. I've never messed with a Mossberg 88, but I'm happy with my 835. Looks like a couple good choices.

    A brand new (NIB) Ruger P89? Must say that is really something! Wow! Yeah--I had one of those back in the day. Good pistol no doubt. Like you, I sold mine or traded it. I seldom look back on those days---until a post like this comes up. Congrats on your new found hardware!

    Congrats on the nice guns! For your next purchase, you might want to consider a better camera...

    I took those pics with my cell phone. I had just gotten home with my new family members and laid them on the dinning room table and snapped a few pics. When I get the chance I will take some better ones with an actual camera.
