Slim , trim, small and light pistols may be chic these days with the explosion of CCW licenses, but when the globe gets "end-of-the-world zombie apocalypse" ugly - and you may have to shoot until the magazine runs dry and then bludgeon undead shamblers with your sidearm, I want this: Above is my 1993 (first year production) P89! (note lanyard). I bought this used off a gun auction site for $222.22. They are just not "in fashion" enough to demand much I guess. But if you are a buyer - Wow! What great value! The three loads I shot today were: Tulammo - 115g - FMJ Geco - 124g - FMJ & RWS - 124g - FMJ Here is 8" round steel at 17 yards: (see knockdown target in distance) That was steel to the right of me...here was steel to the left of me (17 yards): I was using Mec-gar 17 round and extended 20 round mags. Function was flawless with pistol, all ammo and magazines. Here are some gong-shots at 24 yards: Stepping out, I had bowling pins, at about 45 yards, as well as this homemade knockdown tombstone target. I made it a little too touchy and the wind beat me to knocking it over most times. The circled hole is from another pistol but apparently I shoot them about the same way: On the far bank is a steel ram at about 105 yards (you can just see it in above picture). I got on a little roll with the Geco ammo and hit it four times in a row! That ties my record with one of my 357Sigs annnnnd..... my P94 -another P-Series Ruger!....whoda thunk it!! I had lottsa fun...love me some P89!!! Total rounds through this gun(since new to me anyway) =250 representing 5 different loads!
