Bought a used Sigma (SW9VE), wouldn't group consistently, sold it.

Bought a new P95, like it, shoots great but a little chunky.

Gonna buy the replacement for the Sigma, the SD9VE down the road.

After shooting both, I think I prefer the S&W, but will buy a new SD9VE. I prefer the DAO option and no manual safety (SD9VE), over the slide mounted safety/decocker(P95).

You won't go wrong with either.

I own both. Both are totally reliable. I would trust either with my life. But the P95 is way more accurate. I carry the P95 now and then. Not so much with the Sigma. I would trust it. But it is my least accrate gun. And I own a crap load of guns.

The Ruger P95 is by far the superior gun. Features and out of the box performance and quality!

Rugers P and SR series are fantastic guns, hard to beat! Bang for buck value is rivaled by few!
