    Well i went to the range last night, wife was taking a new shooters class and thought, you know i have a brand new pistol never been shot. So broke out the Ruger P95 and a box of FMJ and off we went. Firsat time i have shot a pistol in probably 15 years so wasnt expecting much but wanted to see how gun performed. Here you guys, all feedback is welcomed.

    7 Yards rapid fire, scores out 249 out of 250. also didnt have allen wrench so couldnt adjust sights.

    Jack, the target gave 5 for everything except 7s or out of center mass. I definately see room for improvement, and once i get sights adjusted and a little practice under my belt i hope to see better groupings.

    Hey, first time out with a new pistol, I think those are excellent results from you and the pistol, thanks for sharing.

    Probably something non-PC here, just can't figure it out yet. I'll dwell on it tonite. By God, I'll find it though and turn him in to the PC police!:D

    well my choices were green, orange or zombie so since all the conservationists say go green. and being ecologically repsonsible i went green lol. since it was my first time back after i 15 yr layoff i wasnt ready for zombies

    Good shooting! Get those sights adjusted, and you're in business! All the targets used to be black, and white, I wonder why that changed???

    Thanks Carver,

    it has been too many years, when adjusting combat style sights on a Ruger p95 what increment of movement would you suggest? Rear sight has allen set screw for windage but no incremental guage that i can see.

    thanks

    Same scoring system we used in the Dept. Good shooting. Get used to closer range before moving it back out, and have fun!
