Bought a Ruger P 85 Mark II today
I bought a new to me used Ruger P 85 Mark II today.

Anyone have any experience with this gun?

I can't wait to shoot it.

I'll post a picture of it later.

The Ruger P series although "ugly" is 1 of the most under rated series of pistols out there. They are extremely reliable but not known for gilt edged accuracy. I currently have a P-90 (.45) for my truck gun and feel confident that it'll handle anything I need it to do.

You know, someone on another forum said it was "ugly", not Glock ugly, but at least homely :eek:

So I picked it up and looked at it, I don't think it's so ugly.

Probably because I just bought it.:)

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I like the P85 Mark II's. Good reliable rugged Pistol. Plus it is a Ruger, can't go wrong there.

Pics Please

They are large and "chunky" but very reliable. I had a P89 for 10 years and it never malfunctioned...

I bought mine 16 years ago NIB. I like for my boys to shoot it because it is large and stable. When my middle son was 10, he had a few FTE because he only weighed about 80 lbs and was limp wristing it. It has been nothing but dependable though.
