    CCW Ruger P95 Questions

    Hello all. This is my first post.

    About 4 days ago, I went to my local police station and applied for my ccw and am waiting for them to process everything (they said 14 days max).

    My question is, how many here are carrying (concealed) a Ruger P95 and, since it is such a bulky gun, how difficult is it? What do you recommend for a holster (IWB)?

    I have owned this gun for a few years now and got it as a graduation present. Unfortunately, this is the only gun that I own and since i'm short on $$$ it's the only choice I have as far as carrying goes.

    thanks for all of your help.

    Right now it is my only carry pistol in #1 clip holster from FIST Inc.I dont feel its too bulky even with my beerbelly,conceals just fine under a loose polo shirt.
    It is pardonable to be defeated but never surprised.

    P94

    I carry a P94 occasionally with no problem. I guess it's just what's your tolerance for comfort and what are you willing to put up with.
    Sometimes I use a nylon quilted IWB, this one;

    Sometimes a Don Hume 'type' 715 (soft leather).
    Sometimes an OWB Bianchi #7.

    I carried one for 3 years back in the 90's after they came out, and never had one bit of trouble concealing it. I alternated carry between an uncle mike's horizontal shoulder holster and an uncle mike's mirage pancake holster.(I didn't have a lot of money back then either. Wait, I still don't..lol) I honestly cannot recall a time when I was ever "made."

    BTW, welcome to the forum. Be careful, it can get a little addicting.

    I used to carry one in the appendix position. It wasnt too big but I found it would drop the mag sometimes when drawn from concealment. I remedied that by removing the right side mag release button and all was well. Using a different holster might also have solved the problem. Good luck

    I don't have my camera with me, but this is the exact picture of what I own. From what I've read, it's a polymer frame. Overall, it's a great gun. I've shot 40's, 45's, M16's (that one was fun ) and I always keep coming back to the 9mm because I love how they shoot.

    Thanks..that was the one I was thinking of. If it's a Ruger...you're WELL-equipted! The ONLY suggestion might be a low-profile sight(think Novak)that won't snag!! GOOD LUCK!!
