The Ruger P-Series

The Ruger P-Series

Everything you ever wanted to know about the Ruger P-Series, and probably plenty of things that nobody ever wanted to know.

EDIT: I got something wrong about the P series history. There was a transitional model between the P85 and P89, where Ruger briefly produced P85 Mk2 pistols in stainless. Some of these may have had transitional safeties, which did not have a right side lever but instead a dummy plug much like the DAO guns.

  2. Jon Ribando on December 1, 2021 at 6:50 pm

    Wow voiced changed haha



  3. Didymus 1999 on December 1, 2021 at 6:51 pm

    Holy shit, the difference between Hop’s voice now vs when this video came out



  4. Orien Smith on December 1, 2021 at 6:51 pm

    What is the size difference between a p944 and a p95? I have a 944 and am really only finding holsters for the 95 so I was wondering about compatibility



  5. Ryan Vargas on December 1, 2021 at 6:51 pm

    I’ve always liked the plumb colors on bluing.



  6. W Fisher on December 1, 2021 at 6:52 pm

    I love my P85. First gun I purchased when I turned 21.



  7. NateLB on December 1, 2021 at 6:53 pm

    Should really take a look at the Steyr M9/MF2 series of pistols, if you want, I can ship you out my L9-A1, a fantastic platform.



  8. Discount Operator on December 1, 2021 at 6:54 pm

    8:54 that stung a little sir….

    Lmao



  9. NBW DOUGHBOY on December 1, 2021 at 6:57 pm

    Just got a p345. I didn’t know about the dry fire issue. Man, I hope it’s okay.



  10. Nicky Naime on December 1, 2021 at 6:57 pm

    The P95 requires liberal oiling. Works like a champ. Never seen or heard of them falling apart. If you bought yours used then who knows what they did to it.



  11. Jizzle Mack on December 1, 2021 at 6:58 pm

    I just stumbled upon this video on my feed and thought it was recent, but once you started talking I was like “why tf does hop sound like he’s 12..?” Lol.



  12. OhshitPositive on December 1, 2021 at 7:01 pm

    The most noticeable change in this channel over the last three years is the voice…



  13. Nicky Naime on December 1, 2021 at 7:06 pm

    I feel the same way. The real talent is how good you can make and sell product at minimum cost and still compete with products costing 2 or 3xs more. A good example are SS camaros, Vetts, Mustang GTs or Hellcat Challengers. For that type of performance from foreign cars you spend almost twice as much or 3 or 4xs times as much.



  14. stanford2epa on December 1, 2021 at 7:06 pm

    Hop sounds like a 12 and a half year old kid (girl) just three years ago ?? Wow.. n here I thought he was a 40 year old cyborg tran.



  15. Mike Orick on December 1, 2021 at 7:06 pm

    If it’s good enough for Antonio Banderas, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Luby’s Cafeteria, and the Long Island Railroad, it’s good enough for you. Despite a cast frame, slide, and bbl it’s one of the toughest guns ever made.



  16. Fukingblazed asShit on December 1, 2021 at 7:07 pm

    Idk what’s up with that P345 you had that your friend dry fire mine been dry fire like about 50 times no joke or even more still runs like a champ



  17. Ryan Cee on December 1, 2021 at 7:08 pm

    🍋🍋🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣



  18. Patrick Dean on December 1, 2021 at 7:10 pm

    Your voice really deepened holy shit



  19. Ronald Weiss on December 1, 2021 at 7:12 pm

    My faves of the P Series (and I owned a bunch) were the P95DC and the P97DC. I had a P90 and a P345 but they just didn’t match up to the decockers. I still own the 95DC and the 97DC — each has been totally reliable. Unfortunately, and if I tried to sell them, I would be offered nothing. Oh well. Good video. Really well researched!!!



  20. fuzzywiseman on December 1, 2021 at 7:12 pm

    Young Hop is young. Still neat his video quality hasnt changed much



  21. Ivan Chulo on December 1, 2021 at 7:13 pm

    Your video was very informative, funny, not boring and lots of sarcasm. Cool



  22. Han Uman on December 1, 2021 at 7:13 pm

    I’m sure they’re great, I just think that they’re ug-ly.



  23. VdubSPAZ on December 1, 2021 at 7:14 pm

    Oddly enough I absolutely enjoyed every bit of the info you gave me because I’m that type of person that loves every bit of tidbits of information….

    I own a p95dc and I’m completely happy with it other than the trigger being kind of well you know and you understand…. But I believe a lot of that is because the simple fact that it’s a single action double action which I love for the simple fact I don’t have to have a cocked and just pull it and it’s ready to go…. you can change the hammer spring which actually changes the pool on it just a bit but I’m sure you’re aware of that if not you’re welcome



  24. Hoplopfheil on December 1, 2021 at 7:15 pm

    I made a whole video about the Ruger P-Series without using the words "dependable" or "workhorse." I think I deserve a medal.



  25. church v.s. the world on December 1, 2021 at 7:16 pm

    so dose that mean my 93daowas probolly a police fire arm??



  26. Ronnie Baughman on December 1, 2021 at 7:18 pm

    I have owned the p85,p89,p94,p95 dc,p95pr,and p97dc great reliable firearms had one malfunction in the p95 pr none in any of the others which is a better than my glock 19 jamamatic another glock full size 40 worked great but did not like the way it fit my hand I am partial to steel pistols like a 1911 or a cz75b.



  27. ts w on December 1, 2021 at 7:22 pm

    woah, hop came a long way with the vocal training



  28. 4God And Country on December 1, 2021 at 7:22 pm

    I have a p85 as well, what can I do to have a smoother slide? My slide when racking is really hard, can’t press check like my glock. Would a lighter spring help



  29. Scott Tilson on December 1, 2021 at 7:23 pm

    Call plastic polymer. They call it polymer because it makes it sound more expensive. Call it plastic makes it sound cheap.



  30. Donald Williams on December 1, 2021 at 7:23 pm

    nice video thanks! you know your p-series pistols! Question. Of the P89, P90 and P95, which would be able to share a kydex holster with a P97?



  31. Texas Troy78 on December 1, 2021 at 7:24 pm

    Will there be a S&W Model 59 Series episode in the future Hop?



  32. Chris Hookins on December 1, 2021 at 7:24 pm

    Lol right on. Excellent video.



  33. Aniquin Stark on December 1, 2021 at 7:25 pm

    The p95 was my first "modern" pistol. I still love them for their utilitarian action and bizarrely indestructible polymer frame. I can’t think of a single other weapon that has a slide running directly on a polymer frame with no steel inserts.



  34. 2bit MarketAnarchist on December 1, 2021 at 7:25 pm

    Grew up shooting my dad’s p89…still can’t hit shit with it almost a decade later. Thought it was me but I do just fine with literally any other handgun. Shoots a bit low for dad.



  35. paul baskette on December 1, 2021 at 7:26 pm

    your video is very informative but you gave no details on the p89 which I consider the best of the p-series. you also didn’t comment on how to install arail on the handguns that don’t come with one. please respond to outlawent1@yahoo.com



  36. El Insano Houstatron on December 1, 2021 at 7:29 pm

    16:20 HOP WHAT THE FUCK



  37. GødDamnitJeremy on December 1, 2021 at 7:29 pm

    The Ghetto Blaster series



  38. Ikey Schultz on December 1, 2021 at 7:30 pm

    Damn. Just found this video. Hands down, best review of the P series info seen. I hope you’re still making new videos.



  39. Ecthelion on December 1, 2021 at 7:31 pm

    Wow, Hop before puberty!



  40. esiagent1 on December 1, 2021 at 7:31 pm

    From what I heard the Ruger was not ready in time for the test.



  41. Ikey Schultz on December 1, 2021 at 7:32 pm

    Fwiw, my P85, circa 1990, has new had a single jam. Much better than my new S&W MP Shield.



  42. Nav Rhy on December 1, 2021 at 7:34 pm

    I own a P97DC love it.



  43. ThisCannotBeTheFuture on December 1, 2021 at 7:34 pm

    Great review. Please consider doing something similar for 3rd gen Smiths.



  44. SwissArmyTenor on December 1, 2021 at 7:34 pm

    You’re the first person outside my family I’ve heard use the phrase, "Smooth move, Ex-Lax"!

    Brought a big smile to my face :)))



  45. Amanda Swick on December 1, 2021 at 7:35 pm

    quit dropping your mags on the ground and they may work better.



  46. VdubSPAZ on December 1, 2021 at 7:36 pm

    Also just because of this review you have a new subscriber



  47. Rouse Payne on December 1, 2021 at 7:38 pm

    I own a P95. Most accurate and rugged pistol in my inventory.



  48. Enanny06 on December 1, 2021 at 7:39 pm

    What’s the gun at 0:01?



  49. Billy Ards on December 1, 2021 at 7:41 pm

    You are hilarious dangerous and dangerously hilarious. Greek tragedy. Squirt gun. MALF.

    And dedicated. Reviewing pistols that have no bearing in the new marketplace today. Out of your sheer disdain and commitment thereto.



  50. Boby Jones on December 1, 2021 at 7:47 pm

    I have a P90 never had a jam or failure to function. It may be blocky but almost indestructible.
