Ruger has just released their newest handgun, the Security-9 polymer-framed, hammer-fired pistol. Ruger has built the Security-9 around the highly successful and reliable LCP® hammer-fired action. The Ruger Security-9 is purpose-built to be a mid-size every-day carry handgun, providing full capacity 15-round magazines of 9x19mm ammunition, while offering a more compact and concealable profile.
Ruger is definitely not new to the polymer-framed pistol, even beating out other bigs like Smith & Wesson and Remington back in the 1980’s with their P85-95 series. However, for one reason or another (Glock?) Ruger has always seemed to be in the shadows with these pistols. Well, that may be changing in a big way.
Last year’s Ruger American Pistols have become very popular with nice features, excellent accuracy, and an amazingly affordable price. This year’s Security-9 is a perfect hammer-fired companion to the Ruger American Pistols, and the price is set to shatter the market.
