Thanks for the support y'all. I wrote to Ruger today. Waiting to hear back. I may take it to the gun shop tomorrow.

If I have to send it to back to Ruger, does that mean I'll have to pay another FFL fee when they send it back? Or can they just send it to me directly?

What a pain in the ass. It seems like nothing goes right sometimes.

I got it back today. Not a bad turnaround time. It says they repaired the ejector and extractor. I'm sure they test fired it a bunch of times.

It cycled half a clip alright, so it's looking good.

Thanks again for all y'alls help!

Good to hear Bleak,
All the same a half mag isn't enough to feel alright with the fix. Put at least 100 rounds through it and then you will know if the issue is fixed.

Well, I *finally* took this gun to the range today. I fired in this order...

100 rounds Winchester crap with 1 jam.
100 rounds Federal crap with 1 jam.
50 rounds Winchester Ranger 9mm NATO 124gr FMJ with no jams.

Since I was mostly interested in finding out if the gun works without problems, I wasn't too concerned about accuracy. But I will say this. I started off pretty darn accurate with the walmart Winchesters with some tight little groups at 7 yards. The Federals were off mostly. Down and to the left. The Nato was a little better but I think I was getting tired this being my first time out in many, many years. I shot the last twenty rounds of NATO at 10 yards and it was all over the place. I am strongly desiring to take a CHL class when I get the money.

So is this gun a keeper? With 2 jams in 250 rounds, accuracy notwithstanding due to an inexperienced shooter. What is your verdict, please?

edit: I invested in a nice KleenBore cleaning kit and will give it the once over. I really want to make it work for me.

I'd keep it. The P95 is a fine pistol and will last fovever. The few jams may be attributed to the pistol being new. I can't recall the last jam I had in my P95 or any of my P series for that matter.

Yes, she's a keeper. Two misfire's ain't really nothing, is it. Especially when using cheap rounds. And Ruger customer service was great. Two weeks is fast compared to other stories I've read.

I just bought a Galco holster and belt. Have to wait 2-3 weeks for them though.
