Shot my P95 for first time....

I've had this pistol over a month now and haven't been able to shoot it. I visited a friend today and we shot on his land. I am so impressed with this pistol. I know it's not the best money can buy but it is a highly affordable pistol that shoots very well. I've heard they're allready proven in the performance and reliability arena. I have no regrets with my stainless P95.

I'm already looking forward to shooting it again!

Excellent, glad you like it!

The venerable P series Rugers have quite a following.

Not the best money can buy but, it's a great pistol for the money you spent.

They are accurate and built like tanks!

Had a P90 tank some time ago, I did like it, never failed to do what it did best, putting fat holes in the paper.

I have a P95, really one of the best deals out there @ $300-$320 or so for a rugged, reliable semiauto 9mm that comes w/ 2 15 Rd magazines.

Reliable, rugged, service-accurate, cost-effective: what's not to like?

I liken the P-series Rugers to American muscle cars, compared to European import sports cars: they do what most of us really need them to and are the best 'bang for the buck'.

My P97 was more accurate in my hands than the H&K USP 45c or the Sig P220Combat, by at least a 2" smaller 8 round group at 7 yards, consistantly, for 300 rounds fired through each of them.

I am glad you are happy. If you get into bulls-eye competition you may need something with more potential accuracy, but for a fun gun that will reliably allow you to save your life [if you do your part], the P95 will work VERY well.

Oh, be careful cleaning it. Don't use brake cleaner or many other aerosol cleaners on the frame or you will run the risk of permanently discoloring the plastic. I did that to one part of a P97 frame and learned the hard way, but I can't remember what cleaner it was: breakfree maybe? I honestly don't remember. Maybe shotblaster or something from Remington or Winchester like that? Just be careful. Hoppes works fine for me.

What caliber is a P95?

Ohh it's a .355 cal!

Everybody should know what a P95 is!

I tried one out, it was bulky for me (6'1") but a very good shooter with a good trigger. "Great" gun for the money if your not planning on carrying it.
