Being ugly means VERY little when used in defense. It may even scare the suspect more. A friend has one & I have NEVER seen a more reliable shooter. He can mix any & all types of ammo in it & it feeds , shoots, & ejects every time. That's not ugly .

I like it. But I'm probably a little biased anyway. My Ruger KP944 was the first gun I ever bought for myself and has been the benchmark of reliability that all other firearms get measured against.

Sorry to rehash an old post, but I'm new here and just came across it.

I owned a P85 MKII for 15 years and it never jammed, FTF OR FTE, while I poured close to 8k rounds through it over those years. I carried it for my CCW in California and participated in a Navy SEAL handgun course using it.

I finally got rid of it because its basically just too big and heavy for a 9mm, the same complaint I have about the M9 pistol. I eventually replaced it with a Glock, but I would have no problem owning another some day.

Had a P series Ruger in .45 (P90). Nice dependable pistol. My only problem was just too bulky to carry comfortably. Traded it on a 1911. That must have been in the early 90's.

If I have to explain it, you probably won't understand it.
