    My old man has one. It's a sturdy gun and I can see it pulling truck duty. His isn't picky, and consumes anything you feed it.

    Mine runs like a Timex. It would make a great truck gun. Do it.

    IMO, any of the Ruger P series pistols would make a good truck gun.

    I have 2 P95's ... love 'em. One stays at home full time for wife & HD, & I CC the other one IWB daily. Too heavy & bulky for some, but at 5'10" 195lbs., I don't have a problem with it at all. They're tanks, 15+1 cap, & they'll eat garbage with a smile if you're so inclined. I feed mine caviar.

    It will make your truck purrr with a smile, & research shows that a P95 will improve your truck's gas mileage 5mpg minimum.
    Asked by a CNN reporter "What do you feel when you shoot a terrorist"?, the Marine sniper simply shrugged & replied "recoil".

    For a truck gun, I prefer a revolver. Thats just me.

    you Can....

    Tuck just about any gun out there, just have to ask is it something you can handle for 8 to 14 hrs a day....

    also it depend on you Body , OWB or IWB...or both depend on where or what your doing...

    as for the gun you asking about yes look a crossbreed super tuck and your all set...IMO

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    Ruger P-Series are tough as all get out. They are pretty big and bulky though. The only issue I have is the mag release. On the P89 I have from my ex, I just cannot release that mag without good effort.

    I carried a P95 for about 10 years...albeit when they were all metal.

    Great gun...tough as an AK and easily as reliable. Takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin'

    Gun Control: The theory that a woman found dead in an alley, raped and strangled with her panty hose, is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to police how her attacker got that fatal bullet wound.
