    I don't have too many pistols that have been perfect (mainly because I throw a lot at them - different ammo, different mags, different conditions) but the P94, which I bought used, has been perfect so far! Took her out on Jan 2 for her first workout of the year.... and was shooting for the first time with tactical gloves from HexArmor. First load was from a company whose 357Sig loads I have have great luck with - Parabellum Research - 124g -TMJ (three shots at 12 yards):

    Twenty round mag from Mec-Gar there.... as you can see, the combination of pistol and ammo were MOZ(minute of zombie) accurate! Three shots at the other zombie to dispatch him!

    Now out to steel at 18 yards - very few misses...maybe had one!

    Good on the gong at 25 yards!:

    Nine out of ten at that distance! Even whacked a bowling pin at forty yards! All rounds fed, fired and ejected perfectly.... PBR is good stuff (in limited testing)

    Next up was WPA (Wolf) 115g - FMJ: (also at 12 yards)

    Was aiming for the skin in the hole of the jeans. Not as accurate as the PBR but every round functioned 100% through the gun. Here are shots at the steel silhouette at 18 yards :

    150 rounds thru flawlessly on this trip! Totals for the gun:

    800 rounds representing 8 different offerings!

    One last parting "shot" - three more shots on the zombie hag

    Cool

    Those old P Series Rugers are very reliable.

    My P944 (P94 in .40 S&W) is still going strong; no longer EDC due to Glock coming out with gen 4 for us lefties (holds more, weighs less than the P94) but its still guarding the home front.

    The old P series were workhorses. Durable law enforcement firearm for a time.
