    Ruger p95

    I found a Ruger p95 NIB for 300. This seems cheap as hell so any input on average price range and/or pros and cons of this gun would be hugely appreciated!

    My first gun was a p89. The best way I can describe it is that it's the one of the cheapest, but also reliable, guns probably ever. Definitely not a carry gun. I was going to trade mine towards a shotgun, but now I'm just going to practice a little gunsmithing with it. You can still get aftermarket improvements and good barrels for it

    You can find some of the best value in Ruger firearms. They make great home defense guns.

    Thanks for the input. I decided not to pick it up. In a world where you get what you pay for, usually the cheap route is the wrong one.

    Ruger produces inexpensive products, not cheap products.

    Kel Tec, now that is cheap.

    You should have bought it.

    That is a very fair price on the open market.
    My son bought my brothers P89 in 2009 for $300.
    My brother couldn't hit the broad side of a barn from the inside.
    My son was making ragged holes his first time shooting it from 15 yds.

    Ruger p95

    Yeah my first handgun was a p95. Got it last year for $360 so $300 was a good price!

    I almost bought a P95 several months ago, not as a replacement but just as an addition. My hand didn't fit well with it and it was hard to reach the trigger so I didn't buy it (I think it was used and listed at about $250 at the time). After reading this thread

    - I'm glad I didn't push it with the trigger being hard to reach.

    Why is that? The weight or the size? I carry mine and have no problems, good holster and belt.

    I guess for me it just doesnt feel great in my hand. I cant pick it up without having to adjust it in my hand before I shoot, so it just wouldnt work for me. I guess "definitely" is a little strong. But of my three handguns, its the only one you could probably drive a truck over

    I've had 2 P series Rugers. Built like a tank. Ate everything they were fed. Lots of bang for your buck. Do it!

    I'll second the, "you should have bought it". Not as a carry piece tho. The p95 is rather large for a carry gun, but they are very reliable, will eat any ammo you feed them, are accurate (I've known some to use them for competition shooting), and they are durable. They make a good HD pistol.

    Ruger's, as a rule and in my limited experience, are Cadillac guns at Chevrolet prices (stealing that quote from a friend). My first was a p89 and second was a p95. I have moved on to
    SIG's, but the Ruger's worked very well.

    That's a good price on on a good gun IMO. I had a P85 for a long time (never shot a P95 but it's the 'same' pistol in a 'slightly' smaller and updated package). It goes "BANG" every time you pull the 'bang switch' and eats any round fed through it. Still might be kinda big and heavy for EDC me thinks but that's a relitive opinion and I think it'd be a good purchase.
