    Does anyone know if +P ammo can be used in this gun?I haven't picked up any SD ammo yet since I just got it,Blazer brass ball is all I got now.What would be a good ammo?I am leaning twords Hornady or Winchester or something if I can't use +P.

    I love my P95, and I like my P97 a lot, too.

    For some reason I have an itch for a P89, and especially a P91. I don't know why.

    Actually, I do know why. To me, the P89 is the classic "beater" gun, a good gun that's sorta ugly and can take a lickin' and keep on tickin'.

    As to lubing I clean all my firearms after a range session. With the P94 I field strip, clean and apply a light coat of oil with a rag or patch. I don't drip oil anywhere. I have never had any issues with reliability or FTF. I purchased two additional factory 11 round 40 mags after I purchased the firearm and rotate them each year as I keep one mag loaded in the gun and one extra loaded beside it on the nightstand.

    well I went to my little range for the first time today with my Ruger and got alot of jams and sticks,and a failure to eject,all this on olny the 28 rounds that I had to shoot today.I hope it's the ammo,or it needs to be broken in or something.

    I love my P95 and would like to add a second one at some point, though there are other purchases ahead of it. One of the best benefits for me is the fact that I also own one of the (now discontinued) Ruger PC9 carbines, and I can use the same magazines in both weapons. :)

    I just put a down payment on a P95 brand new for $299.00. I am a revolver man and have a Ruger GP100 and a Ruger Police Service Six. They are solid guns. The P95 will be one of my few semi-autos I own. I will be a happy if the P95 performs as well as my two Ruger revolvers.

    Thanks,

    I bought a P89 new and have had it for years with no problems. Bought a P90 used some time back and never had any problems with it either. I like the new models though for the fact you can mount lasers or lights on the inderneath which with mine you can't without some doings.

    well im thinking about getting another ruger p95. always wouldnt mind a ruger p93 which looks just like it except has an aluminum frame. i'll probably buy a used one if i can find one around. seen them for 250ish in some of the local stores. has anyone had any experience with mecgar after market mags? i know ruger mags are the way to go if i can find them.

    I never liked the trigger but I got past that. My friends .45 Ruger was one of the most accurate pistols I have ever fired.

    the trigger on the one i had wasn't as crisp or light as a 1911's, but i got used to it. there's not many guns that have a perfect trigger other then the 1911, but i cant see giving up on all of them and being a 1911 only man like some gun owners... i love all guns
