You got a "rediculous" and a "clip" in one post. Well done.
You did not mention if you cleaned and lubed the pistol prior to shooting it.
You were a grammer snob and a gun snob at the same time well done.
And no I did not clean or lube the pistol before I took it out. This is my first pistol and I did some forum reading and it didnt seem like it was totally necessary. Im waiting on my cleaning kit in the mail and I got ancy. But im not touching the pistol again till it comes.
Please don't mind the grammar snobs and the gun snobs who lecture about the difference between a "clip" and a "magazine". We get your drift and most folks have better things do do than pontificate on sematics and spelling.
As others have stated here are some things you can try to get your P95 running:
1. Clean it with Remoil or some other lightweight spray on oil. This will get the packing grease and gunk out of it. I would generally agree with you that a new gun shouldnt need cleaning to run, but sometimes they do show up with more grease than necessary.
2. Change ammo. Try something hotter like Corbon +p (that means "High Pressure" in case you didn't know). The extra horsepower may help overcome any friction in a new gun. You dont want to try to shoot a lot of this stuff because its expensive, but it could help you diagnose if your problem is ammo related. If you dont want to spend the $$ for +p just switching brands may help. It could be that you got a bad batch of ammo. Its rare, but it does happen, especially if some bright spark at the warehouse drops a pallet of cast-iron frypans on top of a pallet of bullets and squashes your box of ammo.
3. Swap magazines. Sometimes the magazine is the problem. Also you should take a Sharpie marker and number your magazines so you can keep them straight. Nothing is worse than figuring out that one of your mags is giving you trouble and then losing track of which one it was.
4. Get an experienced shooter to try the gun. I know you said you didnt think you were limp-wristing it, but it never hurts to have an expert help you rule that out.
If none of that works its time to either take it to a gunsmith or give up and sell it to your not-so-smart brother-in-law.
Also, where did you get this gun? If you bought it at a gunstore I would take it right back to them and see what they say.
