    No bells and whistles, nothing custom, just wanted to post a pic of my new Ruger P95, adopted from Bud's. I've fired a lot of 9mms, but this is the first one I've owned (and my first double stack), being primarily a 1911 .45 guy. I spent quite a while deciding on this weapon; seemed like it was one of the few 9mms on the market that received universally stellar reviews.

    Thanks WW. Picked up 250 rounds, a Bulldog holster, and an extra Mec Gar mag, hoping to do the first meet-n-greet this weekend.

    My dad, another member on this forum, has a P95DC 2-tone. He's had it for quite some time, with few-to-no problems. I've personally put about 300 rounds through it and it performed well. I think you made a good purchase :)

    Thanks. $303 all in from Bud's, including shipping and 2 mags. And a mag loader discussed in another thread. Oh, and a padlock which is now out in the garage somewhere... :)

    Nice, I was gonna go with the same model but I went with the P90, only because at the time, I didn't want another 9mm. But the P95 is definitely still on my want list

    Congrat's on your Ruger. I have the older P89 and love it! I like the P95 with the bottom mount...light/laser!:)

    LOL No lights, no lasers. I'm old school. "It's a gun, not a Barbie doll," he quipped, preparing to be flamed into oblivion and banned from TFF... :D

    No, of course I'm just kidding.

    Just received my 500 gigawatt Optical Death Ray from Yukon Frank's. You don't even need bullets, just turn this baby on and it fries the bad guy's retinas.

    Nice set-up Juker! Heck...blind and shoot! I'll have to see if I can get my 75,000,000 CP mounted to my P89! :D ...and yes, 75,000,000! It'll almost light up the moon on a good night!:D

    LOL Anyone who's got one of these little jewels knows that it only takes one time - remembering what side to be on when you plug it in!

    So very true, Those things will blind a person and put out some pretty good heat as well.

    I use mine to warm up my gloves when snow shoveling.

    PS I love my P95.

    I've found that duct tape tends to melt on a hot barrel. The cable tie/zip tie is much more practical. :)

    Juker, thats not a gun.....
    Thanks a Tank. Fine weapon right there. The light is very practical. It must conceal well too.
