    The Ruger P95 has been removed from the Ruger websight, and the Ruger response is that it is no longer in production. Its was the last of the P series. Its a sad day for us Ruger fanboys

    One of the ugliest pistol ever made, but they sure do shoot nice.

    Too bad. They were an affordable alternative to their striker fired offerings.

    So I suppose that's their last auto design by Bill Ruger?

    Ugly and too big for my hands but I shot alright with it. I prefer the SR series myself so no big loss for me

    After seeing the current offerings from S&W. H&K, SIG, etc. I can NOT call the Ruger P95 ugly.

    Wow. I was always recommending the P95 to people who wanted a reliable gun in the $350 range. Guess I'll have to point them all towards the Tristar C series.

    The P series is dead.

    The SR and SRC take the throne.

    Long live the new King!

    Same here, I have small hands and find the SR much better for me.

    Too bad, the Ruger P95 is a real bargain and very reliable. I have the P89, P95, and P90. All solid reliable guns that I have enjoyed shooting for many years. Like S&W and their 3rd gen guns, that I also like a great deal , I guess it is the sign of the times.

    Had a P-95 years ago. had it for about 1 month and then I got a deal on a P-89 (used LEO gun with 3 - 15 round mags) then sold the P95 at the next gun show , still have the P-89 and run about 300 rounds a year through it and it eats everything I feed it ,

    My P-89 was my first handgun. 5k+ with no malfunctions. Reliable, accurate, dependable. I'm holding onto mine forever

    I have one I picked up used about three months ago. I found it to shoot (from my hands) better than I thought it would. I even carry it now and then. I'm glad I got it. It is kind of sad to see the slow death of DA/SA duty-sized pistols, perhaps because it reminds me of my own age. My first agency-issued autoloader was the P-85. Qualified decently with it, but had no formal training with autoloaders (had come from a wheelgun-issuing agency), and really wasn't all the good with it.

    IMO, really ugly are (with a couple exceptions) most new Walther's. They make the P series guns look handsome.

    I have a P89 I bought new for $269 and it is still one of my favorites, I will never let it get away. It is sad indeed to see the P series ended :(

    I don't think they are ugly at all. I think they were some of best priced guns around. I never owned one, but always wanted to, and I love shooting my friends. It seems like pistols are becoming more and more about either striker action, or 1911. I like decent ordinary guns. Is Ruger replacing it with something similar or just hoping their striker action will take it over?

    I'd be hard pressed to find any modern arms uglier than the Ruger P series.
    That said, I'd rather have a Pinto that runs 100% with a couple clogged filters and shot crank bearings, than a Ferrari that won't move if a spark plug is out of spec.
    Plus, these things made useful weapons even without ammo.

    I'm not surprise to see them go. It was inevitable with the demise of the other's in the P-Series line-up.

    The thing that does surprise me, is the departure of the Cam-Block used in the P-95/P-97/P-345. That seemed like such a good design, I'm surprise it wasn't carried on in any current design. Possibly, it wasn't as good as it seemed.

    The SR is not a Ruger design, its a Kimber design. Kimber KPD.
