My New Ruger P95
3 Attachment(s)
Well,I got my first auto.It is the lowest cost bare minimum Ruger there is-but it's still a Ruger and it's still american made.I traded a used Rossi 462 .357 snub,a Taurus 94 4" .22 and $30 cash for the P95,and it is the all blued P95,but I actually like the all blued better than the two tone.I got this gun because I wanted a 9mm and I wanted a change from revolvers.I love revolvers and favor them-but lets face it,a simple rugged 9mm with 15 rounds in it beats any revolver in firepower,a high capacity auto is just a tool to me-a great high capacity tool.Revolvers are eye candy and toys to me,they are art and just awesome,but a simple auto is a tool to me.Now to range report-I put about 150 rounds through it,got two jams on the first 50 rounds-stripped it and cleaned it well,oiled the slide rails-went back out with 100 more rounds and got 1 jam out of 100-so I think i'm doing good being a new auto shooter with cheap ammo and (might) be limp wristing.I keep the gun loaded with Federal Premium Hydra-shok 124 grain standard pressure rounds-15 in the mag with an empty chamber.I like the gun and I plan on keeping this one for a long time.

I'm a big Ruger fan. I think they are one of the best bang-for-your-buck (pun intended) guns out there, and the P-series autos are rock solid. It looks like Ruger has made some improvements to the grip area, my wife has an older P95 that has no dimples in the grip area nor does it have the picatinny rail. Hers is the two tone, but I agree with you, the all blued looks better. Congrats on the new purchase.

I like my ruger a lot and the fact it is made in america!

I got 3 hangups on 150 rounds of ammo,but I am new to auto's,and I have been recently informed that it might be me limp wristing,so I probably wasn't the gun.I think for a $300 gun with the Ruger name on it,it is great.I have heard of other people spending more on Taurus stuff that jams every other round.

well first and foremost 150 rounds is still VERY early in your pistols life, and WELL WELL WELL within the needed break-in period. I recommend not being discouraged at all, REGULARLY and thoroughly cleaning your firearm with a CPL oil like some otis ultra bore or something, and maybe watching a video on the proper way to hold a firearm when firing (in the web of your hand, both thumbs on the same side of the firearm pointing towards the target, etc) and KEEP ON SHOOTING IT WHENEVER U CAN AFFORD TO!

Limp wristing can lead to even some of the best firearms malfunctioning from time to time, ESPECIALLY when they are new and fresh out of the box.

This is just my 2 cents, but i hope it helps :)

Mas Ayoob thinks very highly of them, or at least the P45 and if I'm not mistaken has even competed W/ them; congrats on the new tool!

Good for you! Ruger makes good stuff. Under-rated. Once you get accustomed to an auto, you'll really like it.
