I have not yet carried mine as I am concerned that it may be about a half size too big. Depending on your build it may be just right or too big. That being said at the price you would pay I recommend picking one up. I have only had mine for about 2 months and I really like even though I am not likely to use it for carry.

BRAND NEW ?? GRAB IT !!!!
MY Blued one was 380 out the door, the stainless is usually around that price. 375 or so.
If this is a new gun, grab it. You will not be disapointed.
Actually tell me wwhat store, I'll grab another in this market for those prices !!!

They are great guns for the price! I've had several differant P series pistols and all have been 100% reliable. My wife and daughter took their CC class Saturday and each used P95DC's. I'm lookin for a N82 holster so i can carry mine. mark

Can't go wrong with a P95, I have both a P95 and a SR9C. Right now my everyday carry is the SR9C, my wife prefers the P95. Think about getting a Houge grip to put on the P95, about the best $8 dollars you can spend, the wife even loved the Houge Grip which speaks for itself!!!
The P95's are the AK's of pistols, they eat any type of ammo you put through them and very accurate. Not quite as consistent as the SR9C but close. We've put over 2000 rounds through ours and not the first problem.
Also I agree that the Stainless Steel rails are preferable.
Recently bought a 150 Lumens Compact Flash Light for my SR9C which also fits the P95, was amazed at the amount of light it puts out:
Amazon.com: Compact Pistol Flash Light 150 LUMEN: Sports & Outdoors

A good holster for the P95 is a Forbus Standard RH Paddle (the SR9C also fits well):
Amazon.com: Fobus Standard Holster RH Paddle HPP Ruger P94 ,95,97 with or without rails / Hi Point .45: Sports & Outdoors

- I have not looked for a IWB holster for the P95 since the SR9C is my everyday carry but I do have a Tagua brown Right Hand inside the pants leather holster that I use for the SR9C:
Amazon.com: Tagua Brown Right hand Inside Pants Leather Holster for Ruger SR9C SR40C SR9-C SR40-C COMPACT 3.5": Sports & Outdoors

All of these products are reasonably priced and will not break the bank
You will need some luck though finding 9mm ammo on a regular basis,
enjoy your new pistol.

A P95 is what's on my hip when I leave the house, and quite near at home. I'm 5'11" and 185 lbs. I carry it IWB and it works quite well even when I tuck the tails in, if I do it right. I think that the P95 is safer than any of the striker fired pistols, but this is my own opinion.
The price is very good. I wouldn't mind another.
God Bless

My opinion does not count. Pretty soon all we will have is Block clones striker fired pieces of sh!t. Ones with magazine disconnect to go wrong,or loaded chamber indicator to snag. Then a lot more Block legs when the trigger "safety" catches on a holster and you shoot yourself.

The old P series regular hammer DA/SA pistol is really hard to beat and $315 is a steal.

I love my P95. Truth be told, I passed on the stainless for the blued for the same price. I got mine for $325 (with tax about $350 OTD) from my LGS. I qualified with it for my CHL too.

Eats most ammo, during CHL, they used Magtech and I had one FTF. My friend used my gun to qualify as well, and she had three FTF and one FTE. I blamed the shooter on that one as I had cleaned it before the class. Zero problems at the range.

I'm a stocky guy, I'll probably carry it when my CHL comes.

Just bought the P95 in wky for $313. Feels great in a black hawk check six holster. Just waiting on the weather to improve to get to the range.
