    Question Ruger P94 opinions

    Anyone have any experience with the Ruger P94? I seen one today at a new gun shop that just opened in my area. I like Ruger and want to here about this gun so not a bunch of Ruger bashing. It felt very comfortable in my hands and feels well made. Tell me what you think of this gun.

    I had two of them in .40 caliber. 1st one blued. Wanted a stainless one so sold the blued and bought the stainless. Great shooter. I just wanted more capacity and sold the stainless to get a S&W full size M&P in .40 caliber.

    Never had any problems with the P94.

    From those I know with the Ruger P series they like them. I looked at them at one time, but the "feel" wasn't there for me.

    Aye, I can't speak on the P94 personally, but I formerly owned a P95 and thought it was a great little gun. Fairly accurate for fixed sights, fed every kind of ammo I put through it reliably, and was fairly easy to conceal.

    Can't tell you about the P94..thats the .40 cal version right? But our P95DC (9mm) is still running strong and we bought that used at a pawn shop 11 years ago. Dad's P90 (.45) works great for him and the mags are the same that i use for my EDC p345 (.45). I can only assume that the p94 will have the same Reliabilty and longevity as the p series that we own. You'll always find someone who doesn't like a certain manufacturer and those that love them. My dad and I happen to be Ruger fans for life so if you find one, it fits your hand and feels comfortable I say go for it. They may be ugly and bulky but they'll get the job done and probably out last us all

    I don't have a P-94 but I do have the P-95DC and it is a good gun. The P series guns are bigger and clunkier than they need to be but they are tough and reliable. Good guns. I can even conceal mine. Buy with confidence. Ruger will back you if you have any problems, which I'm sure you won't.

    Ive had my Ruger P94 9mm for a year and love it. It is a little heavy but feels real good with the Hogue grips. Built very solid and can take anything you can dish out

    I have a P94 .40 that I bought new in 1999 and I still love it. It also has the Hogue grips which are very nice. It's a bit bulky for me to conceal, but that's no big deal. If you like it I see no reason not to go for it.

    The Ruger "P" series is a good value. They lack some refinement that the top shelf pistols have, but they are a solid pistol.

    I just bought a P-95 and love it. It ain't fancy but the price was right and it's accurate. It holds 15 + 1 and it barely kicks. It's my 2nd Ruger and I have been nothing but satisfied with both. I don't have the expertise of most of the guys on this forum but I know when something works good.

    "Built Like A Tank", as most Rugers are. Everyone should have at least one Ruger.
    Have had 2 Mini-14's. Wish I still had one.
    I have a P94 in 40S&W. They came in both 9mm and 40.
    I bought the Hogue finger groove grips for it and it fits me great! The heft helps with recoil. I actually carry this bugger on occasion. It's not bad for me.

    On Ruger's site they're all listed as P944 now. I have only seen a slide marked as such in pictures. The 9mm appears to have been dropped in the P94 line-up.

    If I could save enough pennies I would also be picking up a SP-101.
