From all the way here in South Texas....McAllen to be exact....GenerationX.Born and Raised in Mexico.Lived all of my life in the Texas-Mexico border.Did a lot research before buying a Ruger. After reading the pros and cons, I went ahead and bought the P95. After reading all the crap about the Ruger, I am not sure what is it that the haters are going on about. I've already shot about 300 rounds (Monarch) and its SSSSSSSWWWWWWWEEEEEEEEEETTTTTTTTTTTTTT........no FTE. Smooth.Can't feel the recoil. Best purchase, EVER!
