My only issue with my final choice is the difference in length(barrel) is a full inch..

Last time I wore a Uniform of any kind was 22 Years ago,..and it was still a flight jumper, with a Vest with webbing over it...
Love my SR9 but i'm not yet totally comfortable with it as a Uniform Carry Gun, it's not on the agency's approved list.
(but the 95 is) Wife says "if I have to get a new one(she hates autos except for her Buckmark and the .32's we got) you help me pick it and then you can get a new one too!!" "Babe,..I already have 2 full sized Guns I carried for almost 12 years,...."
So I guess she will Get a "92" as well,..and i'll get a new one too!!

A friend in Wyoming has a Ruger P95, and it would put the ejected casings in a very tight 1 foot circle (Unless they hit a rock and bounced). I have never seen a gun do that before. I was much impressed, being the reloader that I am.

My local gun store has the two tone p95 on sale for $330 and the black for $299. I have yet to hear a bad thing about that gun.

Am I the only one with the s&w 40 sd, and not the ve.

I love mine, it's a bit snappy on the recoil, I've put close to 10,000 rounds in it, the only problem I've had was the recoil spring assembly wore out (it's plastic) s&w sent me out 2 replacements.

For carry it's a bit bulky, clothes could help that I suppose.

Good luck deciding

P95 is proven and never have I heard of even a FTF, not even a jam!! I'm sure this gun has failed in its history at some point!! But to hear all the praise from even the most seasoned gun owners, says a lot!! She is not ideal to carry, but if that's not a problem!! You can not go wrong with the small investment of the p95
