    Ruger P95

    Went to the range today with a buddy and he brought his Ruger P95. It was a horrible gun in my opinion. The slide moved slow as hell, and overall the gun felt cumbersome to operate. Are all he rugers this way? I like their revolvers, but between this one and the LCP, I'm not impressed.

    I love my P95's. They are bulky, but I haven't noticed anything slow about the slides. I do prefer the DC versions.

    I sold a P95 as I had a 97DC already. The 95 is a beast, but it is well mfg'd, and does not miss a beat on the range. I could never get really good accuracy with it. It is built to military specs, but Ruger's 95 lost the Army contract to Beretta back in the day.

    I actually carry a P90 daily on my tractor. It has had just about everything from saw dust to sand in the action and never jammed or had any failures of any sort. I absolutely love mine.

    It functioned flawlessly, just didn't feel like a quality piece.

    I used to have a P85, no complaints at all. I just recently sold it so I could get another XD just because it was too big to conceal.

    Could that have possible been due to the "rattle" when empty?

    I have 3, 2 rattle, 1 does not, but I bought it unfired.

    i have one - dont love it, but its reliable. i agree it feels bulky but i dont really know of anything that beats it for the combination of price/reliability/functionality.

    Was this the polymer frame? Mine is all stainless. Perhaps this is the difference? As to other comments, it is bulky. I agree there. However, if I were to bet my life on any gun, I believe it would be my P90. I have to admit that it was a rather "cheap" gun but I really couldn't live without it. This is actually the gun that sold me on Ruger products in general.

    Sure the Ruger P series handguns are not the sleekest and lightest full size semi's out there by any means but no one questions the build quality of the pistols. They are universally considered rugged, reliable, and very strong, though this strength comes at the cost of bulk and a generally blocky appearance. You can get one new for $300 and its a very good value at this low price point. They make a fine bedside or truck pistol. If you are only familiar with more modern plastic fantastics maybe they just don't feel right to you.

    I remember the first P85's had frame cracking, firing pin issues. I was all hot to buy one when they first came out, but the frame issue came around about the time I was able to save the funds.
    Jeeze...that was like...1989?

    That was the 85. First of the P-series. They actually didn't make the cutoff for the trial IIRC.

    No longer own any Pseries guns, but I've had my share. They all shoot where you point them and go bang every time. I had a P90 that was stupid accurate. 8 rounds in one hole at 15yds accurate.

    The polymer guns are a little slide/top heavy, with a fairly high bore axis, and it contributes to that "slow slide" feel that Luke described in the OP.

    The answer to this question is straightforward: The purpose of having citizens armed with paramilitary weapons is to allow them to engage in paramilitary actions. The Second Amendment is not about Bambi and burglars whatever a well-regulated militia is, it is not a hunting party or a sport-clays club. It is remarkable to me that any educated person let alone a Harvard Law graduate believes that the second item on the Bill of Rights is a constitutional guarantee of enjoying a recreational activity. - Kevin D.

    I have a P95 DC and I'm not the biggest fan of the gun (wife has claimed it so I can't sell it) I will say that it has never missed a beat and is fairly accurate. In a pinch you can use it as a blunt instrument if you run out of ammo......

    Well if we ever get together you get first shot at it. I have a correction though (just went to the safe) It's a P94 DC in two tone stainless. I even have the box and paperwork. I think it's from the 90's. Man I have not pulled this thing out in years...

    Pretty sure it was poly. It was all black.
