The Ruger P series guns are rock solid. I have a P89 and a buddy has a P95. Both are dependable shooters. By no means are they race guns, but I have enjoyed mine from the time I got it almost 20 years ago. Thousands of rounds and no problems that weren't the fault of underpowered reload ammo I shouldn't have bought. You won't go wrong if you get a P95 for your firts pistol. Good luck.

I've got the P95DC. Father in law has had it since '92, he gave it to me 3 years ago. The thing will shoot any ammo you throw at it and it is just fun to shoot. I have a stock 10 rnd mag, an extended 23 rnd mag and a ridiculous 35 rnd mag. It's super easy to field strip and clean. You will likely be very happy with this as your first pistol.

Friend of mine has a p95. Its a great shooter accurate and never jams. I carried it around in the door of my work truck for a while. Most you can ask of a cheap pistol. SHTF I would pick one up over a glock no problem. Great running gun IMHO.

Love my P95, I have had it about 10 years. Great gun for the money, reliable, shoots well, easiest to strip and clean gun I own. It's a winner!

Keep it clean. Me and a friend went to the range during a really bad dust storm and her p95 misfed or failed to fire almost every other round. My CZ and ruger LC9 never had a problem. I expect my pistols to work 100% of the time. A dust storm messing it up is not accepable.

This would be the only one that has ever happened that I've ever heard of. The one my friend had I don't think had ever been cleaned/lubed in 20 yrs of ownership. I took it from him to test fire it to make sure it still shot. 50 rds later without a hitch and accurate dirty too. I would pick one up w/o hesitation. Maybe his mag springs were weak that can cause more than a few ftf (failure to feed) problems regardless of make.
