    The guide rod can stick out, and the gun can jam when the guide rod spring is put on backwards. There is a subltle difference in the size of the spring ends. The large end goes toward the muzzle.

    I've had my p89 for a little over a year, and over 1500 rounds through it. I've never had any problems with it. The only reason I wouldn't buy a second one is that it is a bit bulky for concealed carry. But for plinking at the range, it is a great gun.

    I would trust it for home defense, as well (100% reliable so far).

    I plan to buy the P95DC for my first semi-auto soon. Like you said the price is great. Just not sure if I want blue or stainless.

    I was considering what you said about the spring having two different sized ends. I believe that may have been the problem. We don't get to shoot much now but hopefully soon we will figure it out. Other than the guide rod problem its a very reliable gun. I understand what you are saying about the size for concealed carry. I for one would not carry this for that kind of purpose.

    I just a stainless P95DC and I have to say it's one of the best guns I have ever own and you can't beat the price. And I have over 40 handguns which 18 are 9mm auto's. This baby will be the last to go. The only con is it being fat and I don't know how they do it but my small hand gripe it great.

    Definitely so. My very first larger-than-22-caliber handgun was a Ruger P89 (12 years ago), and I recently bought a P94. I marvel at the quality of the engineering in these guns. To me, there is nothing ugly about them. Quite the contrary. The P89 is extremely reliable and comes with two 15-round clips. It lives in my glovebox now.

    On the one occasion when I needed servicing, it found Ruger to provide prompt and courteous service.

    My only complaint is bulkiness. When I went looking for a concealed carry weapon, I began looking elsewhere. Now I wonder why. Ruger makes some beautiful stainless revolvers that, while heavier than the alloy frames, are RUGERS. For value, Ruger is mighty hard to beat. And the P89 has earned a huge following for good reasons. It shoots like a dream.

    Yes indeed. Rugers are not only competitively priced but extremely durable and well made. If the world ever went up in a nuclear mushroom the only two things to survive would be cockroaches and Ruger firearms - they're that tough.

    I have owned my P94 (in 40 S&W) for 13 years and it has never had a failure of any kind and has excellent accuracy. I shoot it regularly and it is my house gun.

    I disagree. Not in terms of them being reliable; you pull the trigger on a loaded cartridge and it will go bang every time. I just think that the Rugers actually look pretty good, particularly my P95. Yes, the 1911 design looks better (it's the quintessential semi look), but the P95 definitely has cleaner lines than, say, a Beretta or a CZ. Then again, I don't carry (mine's just a plinker ATM, though I have a mag of Federal JHPs for emergencies), so its bulk is not a problem for me.

    I would definitely recommend the KP95PR; It's inexpensive without being cheap, it handles +P and +P+ (part of the reason for its bulk; thicker chamber walls), field-strips in seconds, and there are hundreds if not thousands of people who will speak for its reliability and tolerance (one gun reviewer shot 3000 rounds through it without cleaning it before he had a failure). Suggestions: get the Hogue slip-on grip (cost me $11) and buy a lot of Winchester white-box FMJ for it; my gun loves those rounds, but with the 15-round magazine it is a hungry friend (100rds sounds like a lot until you realize it's only 6 full mags +10 rounds). People have reported good results with Blazer, but I have not yet shot it through mine and cannot comment.

    I had a P-95 for a while. They are good guns. I got in a tight one year and had to sell mine.

    p95

    my first handgun was a ruger p95. i love it. it is easy to take down, clean and is great at the range. i also shot it accurately right out of the box, which for being a beginner was a big boost in the learning curve.

    I actually just got one for my first gun. I love it, it's simple to use and very fun to shoot. Looking forward to taking it to the range again.
