    Just thought I would start the thread, thinking about my first handgun and that one looks inexpensive. Figured at least a couple people around here have one and just might also have an opinion... Maybe even some picks...

    I have the Ruger P95 and it an awesome handgun! It's a full size firearm and a bit on the "chunky" side but flawless functioning! You won't go wrong with the P95!

    i have the newer p395. its alittle bulky, but its had no issues. take down is easy as far as steps but takes a little bit to get them right. at least it did for me. a few mtrys and i got the hang of it. shoots decent. will keep all the rounds inside 8'in at 15 yards rapid fire. has a pretty stiff trigger, but it is smooth

    The Ruger P95 is an EXCELLENT first handgun. It is a full size and a bit on the hefty side but a great platform to learn on. It was my first handgun and on of the few that I wish I had NEVER of traded away. Recoil is very manageable and returning to point of aim is a cinch. I think you will enjoy!

    I have a P95. It doesn't get shot a lot. But that is because I have too many guns in my collection. I probably have 400-500 rounds through it. Flawless so far.

    P 95 is a good choice very dependable for a reasonable price.

    I have a PD95 that I bought about 11 or 12 years ago. Dependable so far. I have about 500 rounds through it so far.
    I understand you cant buy a new PD in Calif now tho. Seems Ruger did not submit one to keep the gun on the "ok to buy" list in Calif.

    I have heard that Ruger may discontinue the P95 before too long. Stick with the SR series instead.

    I have a P95 and I love it. It was my first gun and you can just keep feeding it. The recoil is more than manageable. I have small hands and it's still pretty comfortable. Love this one!

    Mine is flawless and I introduced a friend to shooting with it and she loved it.

    Best bang for the buck.

    If semi-autos were available in the days of wagon trains it is what they would have carried. A good accurate, reliable, rugged gun.

    I have had a p95 in the past and I liked the way it felt and shot. Ruger makes a damn good gun.

    I had a P85 (the forerunner to the P95) and it got the job done as a duty pistol and a fun gun to take to the range.
    Just this past week a fellow at the range next to me was using a P95 and doing quite well.
    If I needed another 9mm I wouldn't hesitate to buy one.

    Great gun!! Little to big and heavy to carry!! But a great shooter!! The weight gives the gun virtually no recoil!! For the money I think it's one of the best high capacity 9mm you can buy!! I've seen them as low as 319 on gunbroker!! Only compliant I have, the mags are a little stiff and hard to hand load but that will improve with time!!

    I recently traded for a P95 and realy like it. not my carry gun, just wanted a full size auto.

    It's a 2009 series with the rail for a laser sight.
