Congratulations! Just clean it well, lubricate it well and then shoot the heck out of it. Then repeat a bunch. That will break it in and get you comfortable and confident with it.

The Ruger P series is a quality pistol. I own three including a P95. Fun to shoot and hold up well over time. Hard to wear them out, I put a lot of rounds through them and they still work like new.

I'm assuming that was you in the vid? Nice gun and I didn't see any malfunction during the vid clip.

Can I give you a suggestion for the FTEs?

You're tea cupping the gun with that grip. Move your weak side hand up one finger notch. Keep the weak side hand in front of the strong side and not under it! With this change also transfer your grip "squeeze pressure" over to the weak side hand (about 60% of the holding pressure).

Place your weak side thumb over your strong side thumb and capture it during shooting.

Now here's the secret, your first area of concentration is the front sight (of course) but also pay some attention to the asymmetrical application of pressure by allowing your strong side hand to relax. (When your trigger finger hand is tense, it screws up the entire hand geometry of the trigger pull. It usually causes the hand to follow the finger and pull the muzzle down and to the weak side. Do you typically shoot low left?)

You won't believe how much more relaxed your whole shooting stance will be and this one small change will will improve your 10 ring count!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I have been starting to get FTE's on about 5% of my shots.The gun dealer says that it is a result of limpwristing,Is this true?I knew stovepipes were from limpwristing,but I had not heard FTE's were a result of it.I have been experimenting with getting my weak hand in front of and not underneath my strong hand,but it isn't a natural feeling,so I know I am probably teacupping some of the time when i'm not thinking of how to hold the gun.Tell me if my grip looks better from before.

I know this is late in posting - but for all thats interested, I have the Ruger P95 and it just hates Win White Box ammo. Mine did everything Ninjatooth's did esp during break-in. I switched ammo, kept shooting and its troubles are all behind me now. It loves Blazer, Rem, and American Eagle (all good $-wise). Yeah the P95 is not my #1 go too but its really a good 9mm. Everyone hang in there, break'em in and believe in our USA Ruger guys!

I have a P85 with 800-1000 rounds down the pipe. I had a few FTF and a few FTE, but that was shooting 10 year old cheap european ammo and mostly by my 85 lb 10 year old. I'm sure limp wristing played a big part of the failures. That was 4 years ago. I have put about 400 rounds through it since without a hiccup. Mostly Winchester White Box, Blazer Brass, and Monarch. P Series are built like tanks and usually pretty reliable. Enjoy the 95.

P.S. I'm jealous of the fact that you feel the need to wear a coat. We have had triple digit temps for weeks in Dallas.
