Default Oil Pressure Gauge

Has anyone encountered this problem? About a month ago my 05 1500 4.7L started showing no oil pressure at start up, only when cold. What I do is immediately shut it off then re-start and the guage jumps up to where it should be. Im guessing that its only a problem with the gauge or the sensor because Ive never had the idiot light come, even when the gauge reads 0.
Ive use only Pennzoil Ultra full synthetic oil every 3,000 miles since 23k, Im at 87k now so I dont think I have a problem with sludge (but you never know).
I do an instrument check and all the gauges pass and I get a C-code of 00 00.
Any Ideas?

Sounds like a bad sensor. What is with all the oil pressure problems lately lol?
Sure it'll suck, but it'll make you a man

I'm voting sensor as well, that's more likely than a gauge going bad.

I thought the oil pressure gauge was a pressure on or off type reading and never actually read pressure, just like fords idiot op gauge.
