Rated 5 out of 5 by homerez 5 star pistol
Researched guns for 6 months. Wanted one for carry and one for home defense. 1st bought the LCP for carry ( great little gun also) 1st decision was a 40 cal or 9mm. 9mm best fit me. Narrowed down to SR9 & P95. Shot both. All things considered went with P95. Great choice. Pistol shoots great out of box. Low recoil,very accurate, at a price you can not beat. 1st 100 rounds flawless with cheap ammo. Shot a box of Hydra Shok HP's with same results. If you are looking for dependabilty,acccurate, home defense protection at a very good price go with the P95 Ruger

Rated 1 out of 5 by Martythehunter P95 is junk
Bought one of these guns for my daughter to teach her self defense and own. She is a avid shooter. This gun has very good safety features and that's why I got it. I own glocks.
The gun will regularly limp grip jam and if you use a two hand cup grip the pressure on the magazine causes a non cycle jam.
I called the service guys at ruger and the guy said he shot one recently and it was a known problem. No repair or modification can remedy.
I gave this gun to my 78 year old friend that is like my dad because he is a gunsmith and wanted to see where they went wrong with the mag well catch system
So those of you that like it go to the range and see. I value my life so I will stick to a sure thing glock. I gave her my service six instead.

This is not the first 9mm I have ever owned, nor is my current P95 my first P95. I "started" with a P95 and worked up to Glock and XD, but came back to the P95. It is as reliable as any 9mm at any price. It may lack some of the frills of the XD in a grip safety or the simplicity of the Glock, but I can buy a boatload of practice ammo and still be well under the price of one of the aforementioned pistols. I have shot all of them and the P95 is where money belongs. You have a hammer fired SA/DA high capacity pistol, great sights, two mags, legendary customer service from an AMERICAN company, and great shootability in a sub $400 pistol in the the world's most common pistol caliber. Guess I am not sure what part of that is supposed to make me spend the extra money....

Rated 5 out of 5 by rec54 Great first pistol
I finally broke down and purchased a pistol for home protection and target practice. I am very pleased with the P95, 9mm, 15 round mag. Very good accuracy and no malfunctions shooting various loads and brands. If you are a first time pistol buyer looking for top notch weapon at a good price, the P95 is a great choice. Very easy to break down, clean, and reassemble, another plus. I now have peace-of-mind keeping it in my nightstand.

I have the older P89 and it eats any ammo I put in it. Choose your ammo based off what your planned use is. Federal Champion FMJ is a good round for target shooting. Use hydroshock or JHP rounds for self defense.
You'll probably want to take a look at your state laws. I don't think that there is an issue in Maryland but it's always a good idea to ask one of your local officials about the specifics of the law before hand.
2 15 round mags come in the box. If they have any regular laser mount then It will work. It has big enough of a rail to hold pretty much any handgun laser. I would assume they would have something to choose from.
Yes, the safety also serves as a decocker. It actually is on safe in the down position, just opposite of a 1911 Colt. To take the safety off, you just push it up and forward. Not hard to do while holding the pistol. If the pistol is cocked, you just put it on safe and it drops the hammer, just like on a Walther PPK or Sig or Smith and Wesson. If the gun is cocked and loaded, dropping that hammer always scares me, and of course is always pointed in a safe direction. I own Glocks, Smith, Sig action, Walthers and others. I keep the P95 out of the safe for home defense, so that gives you an idea how confident I am with it. I have had mine about 2 years and never a jam. Really a good workhorse, ugly maybe, but functionally the best.
