I’m taking this opportunity to write about a classic 9mm pistol that some of you may not know was discontinued a few years ago: the Ruger P95.
Two-thousand thirteen was a tumultuous year for firearm owners to say the least. From proposed legislation to ammo shortages and panic buying, there was no lack of news for the average gun guy. Yet one piece of news was overlooked then and still is when people remember those dark days— in October of that fateful year, Ruger quietly pulled the P95 from their website and discontinued the once stalwart handgun
Ruger’s SR series of striker-fired pistols was preceded by the P-series of double action/single action pistols. The last of the P-series pistols was the P95, which Ruger quietly retired in October of 2013. Few lamented the passing of this under appreciated pistol. This review is meant to serve as a belated eulogy for the P95, a durable, reliable, and affordable pistol that may not be state of the art in any way, but for most people — beginners especially — is a reasonable choice . . .
