New pistol but oldie also

I just picked up a Ruger P95. All I have to say is that this pistol is built like a tank. I have put about 300 rounds through it flawlessly. I really enjoy shooting this good older hammer fired pistol.
I would love to hear about others that also have one of these P95 9 mm pistols.

Sometimes the oldies are better than the new stuff. I got offered a 1983 Browning hi-power 9mm today and would have owned it if I had the spare cash, it was as clean as new and the old lady that was selling it still had 2 boxes of ammo from the same purchase as the gun from 1983 if that tells you how much she shot it. The original receipt was for the gun and 5 boxes of 9mm dated june 1983.

I am a revolver boy but like you I only like hammer fired pistols. Don't have a P95 like you, but do have several Beretta's all with hammers.

45SF ... You will find a lot of P-Series love here at RF.Net. IMHO, the P95 is a great choice as it is well built, durable, comfortable to shoot (with the Hogue grip sleeve), more accurate than many people give it credit, and with proper maintenance will likely last you a lifetime. Mine just rolled over 16,000 rounds down the pipe and has never had a failure of any kind (only pistol that I can say that about). I'm also very fond of my P345 if you're considering a .45 (P-90 is excellent as well).

nice guns the p series built better than a tank as a p series is easier to carry.

Hey thank all for the replies, I really do enjoy shooting the P95 & have been keeping my eye out for the P90 also, I had the SR9 & the SR45 but here of late have gotten tired of the striker fired pistol & sold them. I do have a Taurus PT 111 G2 Millennium has my only striker fired pistol, it has been a good reliable firearm.
I also cannot believe that Ruger dropped the P series either & replaced it with the SR series of pistols. If I could find another P95 but in the 2 tone color I would jump on it if I had the cash at the time.

Also what holster recommendations are there out there for the P95. I also tried the Hogue grip that came with it but didn't like the feel, I think I have gotten used to Traction grips so much that I cannot do the Hogue, but Traction Grips don't make one for the P95 anymore, Talon Grips do but a bit pricey for just some grip tape.

I have a two tone P-95 and love it. Completely stock and I find no reason to change the grips. I think this is one from the collection that will never be sold. I did see a P-95 at Black Wing in Delaware Ohio that looked to be in good shape. I think it was two tone. There was another model in the case as well but I did not look at that one. They were used and under $300.

Not to be an enabler, but...

P90DC

Up in the for sale forum, there is a cherry P90DC for a good price. If I didn't already have a P90, I'd jump on it. Might still be available.

Yeah I am really liking that P95, I really want some Traction grip or Talon Grip on it, that Hogue grip is okay but I am so used to the other options. I like Talon Grip but the cost is a bit much for what you get compared to Traction grips it looks the same to me but Traction grips don't make it for that pistol anymore.

Yes I agree that this pistol is accurate, much more than me. I have considered selling it but every time I shoot it again it I just cannot let it go no matter how bad I need the cash.

I have a P95 as well. I do love this gun. For other reasons than it just being a good gun. I have had some FTF issues with it and have considered sending it to Ruger to have it fixed. Out of curiosity why do you not like the SR9 anymore? I just bought one and am very happy about the purchase.
