Good. Have you got a holster yet? They a bit rare for the P95. look into the Galco..sorry I foget the exact name but its OWB and gun almost snaps into place I like it for OWB. Thinking about a CrossBreed or a Pitbull for IWB, but dont know if I should wait since its much easier to conceal in winter.

Y'all are crazy. I'm thinking about trading up SR9c for a Kel Tec for carry duties, based solely on size.

Default Re: Anyone carry a Ruger P95?

I have a P95, and for many years it was my ONLY carry gun. Back then, I didn't know much about holsters, so when I carried IWB, it was in an uncle mike's POS. For OWB I have a Galco holster (with thumbreak) but I can't remember the model. Amazingly I was able to conceal the beast easily enough.

I've since switched to a Glock 30, but I have a fondness for that gun. Probably 13 years old and still takes whatever punishment i throw at it.

IMO ruger P-series is one of the best guns ever made. Just feels so natural and shoots like a dream. I own a p90

i dont have a holster yet. i probably can just get a belly band from a friend but its not really the one i want. better than nothing for now. its great to carry large guns. if you run out of ammo we can use the gun as a club. its heavy and serves these purposes. can throw it too

I carry the P95 pretty much daily. It's a great reliable gun that goes bang every time. If I go somewhere where I need to make sure I'm really concealing I carry my Kel-Tec PF9.

Default Re: Anyone carry a Ruger P95?

I seem to agree with the majority so far; I carry a P95 almost constantly, in a Crossbreed SuperTuck (which makes all the difference, IMO). It is quite concealable, and when properly supported and weight-distributed by the holster, hardly noticeable in terms of weight and pressure. I also have carried it in the Fobus paddle, but it's little big for concealing OWB, I think. I like the P95 because I'm 6'5" with big mitts, and the beefy grips fit me better than guns with a smaller mag. The P95 was a little balky on the feeding ramp when I first shot; I used to get a jam or stovepipe virtually every mag of 15, but after polishing the ramp a bit and putting 100-150 rounds through it, it smoothed out and I've had no problems, often shooting 300 rounds in succession with no hint of failure. The recoil is quite manageable too, despite the polymer frame.
