I have 2 Ruger P series pistols--I don't have a 95--but they are very similar.
I have never had a jamb with either pistol.
Like most self-defense pistols---they are not a target pistol.
In a self-defense situation--you can forget accuracy.
In target shooting---this pistol is as accurate as you can make it.
If you want a target pistol--buy a .22.....................
Have fun.....................

Thanks for the reply, how accurate would you say yours is then compared to a 22.

Depends on the gun & the shooter................
My eyes are not as good as they were------- using my Browning buckmark .22 ( 6 3/4"
barrel ) against my P-85 9mm---
From a bench rest --the Browning at 50 yard target will outshoot the Ruger at a 25 yard target.............
Some people may shoot different............................

Thanks JHoward.
I am looking for a self defence and all around pistol for shooting fun at the range.
I know you don't have this model but a 85 must be about the same, In your opinion do you think i will be disapointed at the range.

Maybe i should look into some other gun.

you should never be disappointed in a ruger. i don't have any pistols but everyone i have shot was a fine firearm. for home defence my favorite is a short barreled pump shot gun with bird shot. just the sound will make any thief turn to jello.

if we're not supposed to eat animals why are they made out of meat?

I'm looking for more in line with conceiled carry gun and multi purpose weapon.
A shotgun is always intimadating on the homefront for security.
I have heard great things about ruger never jamming and they have a very good reputation.
I just hate a gun though that when taken to the range and shooting at a target the bullets go all over the place or near impossible to shoot a can on the first shot.

If you put the 95 in a gun test stand ---it will hit the bullseye at 25 yds. every time.
You will enjoy this weapon............
Takedown is easy for cleaning ( sim. to a colt 1911 -.45 acp )
You can't go wrong w/ a Ruger product....................................

With the polymer frame, the P-95 is light enough for CCW, but with the double stack magazine it is on the thick side of things.

My P-95 has served me well. I shot IDPA matches with it a couple years back. I always found the firstshot, double action stlye, was always more accurate than subsequent single action follow-up shots.

Rugers don't have the snob appeal of a Sig or a Kimber, but are an excellant value for the price.

jHoward, can you still break down and put back together your 1911 blindfolded? I still test myself when I clean my 70 series Commander.

You bet..................
Besides a .22 revolver--my first pistol was a nickle plated
P-35--9mm.
When I went to the gun range--people would say " what are
you doing w/ that little pee shooter "
Look at the 9 mm today..........................
I have 2 -1911's plus a Colt Ace .22 on 45acp frame.

It was a bad joke training guys on a Colt Ace--when they finally got to shoot
the .45 -1911 -- they would always say---WTF !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
