postheadericon Ruger Announces New Pistol; The Ruger Security-9, And The Price Is Just Stunning

Yesterday, Ruger announced a new pistol to their line-up that will bring some competition to the Glock 19’s and S&W M&P M2.0 Compact’s of the world.

As you can see below, they’ll be available in both 15+1 and 10+1 capacity. But wait, what’s that MSRP? With an MSRP of $ 379 for the Ruger Security-9, it’s sure to appeal to many people looking for a new self-defense firearm.

We’re hoping to get our hands on one soon for some testing and eval, and we’ll have a review up once that’s done.

Take a look at their press release below, including specs:

Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is proud to introduce the new Security-9® pistol. Ideal for everyday carry and self-defense, the Security-9 is an affordable, rugged, mid-sized centerfire pistol that provides everyday security in the perfect caliber, size and price point.

Chambered in 9mm Luger and utilizing a 15-round, double-stack magazine, the Security-9 strikes the perfect balance between a compact and full-size pistol. It is small and light enough to be easily concealed and comfortably carried, yet has twice the capacity of slimmer 9mm Luger pistols.

At the range, both new and advanced shooters will appreciate the easy-to-rack slide; short, crisp trigger pull; eye-catching sights; and ergonomic, textured grip frame. The American-made Security-9 is constructed around a rigid, one-piece, precision-machined, aluminum chassis with full-length guide rails; a blued, through-hardened alloy steel slide and barrel; and a high-performance, glass-filled nylon grip frame with an integral accessory rail.

The Secure Action used in the Security-9 is the same as the LCP® II and is derived from the reliable and proven hammer-fired LCP fire control system, combining the smooth trigger pull of the LCP with the short, crisp feel and positive reset of a single action. Safety features include a bladed trigger safety, external manual safety, neutrally balanced sear with significant engagement and strong spring tension, and a hammer catch to help prevent the hammer from contacting the firing pin unless the trigger is pulled.

“The Security-9 is a yet another example of what we do best here at Ruger: deliver new products to the market that combine innovation and value,” said Ruger President and CEO, Chris Killoy. “We expect our customers are going to be excited to buy the Security-9; they will definitely enjoy shooting it.”

The new Security-9 features a 4” barrel and weighs just 23.7 ounces with an empty magazine. It ships with two alloy steel magazines and a cable locking device.

Ruger Security-9 Specs:

  • Model Number: 3810
  • Caliber: 9mm Luger
  • Capacity: 15+1
  • Barrel Material: Alloy Steel
  • Barrel Finish: Blued

postheadericon Is Carrying Two Pistols Better Than Just One?

By Luke McCoy via USA Carry

Some concealed carriers swear by it, others call it excessive. Carrying more than one handgun for personal protection has some distinct advantages and disadvantages. Do you pack more than one pistol when you head out into the world? In this article, we’re going to take a long look at the benefits and limitations of carrying a backup concealed carry handgun.

Theory: If One Gun Jams, You Have A Backup

No matter how ready we think we are, there’s always a lingering doubt that we’ll run into the dreaded “click” when it comes time to pull the trigger. In those situations, we can practice for action drills to remedy a misfire or failure to fire. However, some concealed carriers prefer to just jump to a second pistol. If you’re equipped for it, that’s certainly an option.

PRO: Immediate follow-up to a malfunction.

CON: Failure to remedy the malfunction through remedial action.

Practice: It may just make more sense to practice more with the equipment you use on a daily basis so you can develop a baseline of expectation for what that pistol is capable of. If it’s not up to your standards, perhaps consider switching to a more reliable gun.

Theory: If One Gun Runs Out Of Ammo, You’re Covered

This can especially be true for revolver lovers. When that first cylinder is expended in a gun fight, there’s not a whole lot of time to fumble around with a speed clip or a moon clip. Sometimes you want to be able to immediately stay in the fight. Having a secondary gun can definitely be a great boon.

PRO: Staying in the fight just a bit longer.

CON: It may be better just to carry spare magazines and spend more time practicing combat reloading.

Practice: There’s no way of knowing how long a self defensive gun use situation will last. It may be five brief seconds or fifteen minutes. Chances are good that if the fight goes on longer than ten to fifteen minutes, you’re going to need to have the option of reloading or switching pistols. It might just make more sense to stick with the same pistol you’re using and simply reload.

If you’re worried that one extra magazine isn’t enough, it’s still more expeditious to carry another magazine than carry a whole other handgun.

Theory: Can Hand Off A Gun To An Ally

Dire situations can make strange bedfellows. Who knows who the man or woman to your immediate left or right may be when a bad situation strikes. In a defensive gun use situation, you may feel compelled to offer aid or assistance to those nearby. Having two people equipped to handle your opponents may up your chances of surviving. Having a backup gun means you can turn one good guy into potentially two.

PRO: Immediate force multiplier.

CON: Uncertainty in tactics and training.

Practice: If you’re willing to trust a complete and total stranger with one of your firearms, then you’ve made up your mind. However, if you don’t know or are not confident in that person’s abilities with a firearm (or their understanding of firearm safety), you may be creating another liability for yourself in the short term. It may be more useful to help those in your vicinity properly use cover and concealment until they can flee than surreptitiously handing out your own lifeline.

In conclusion, carrying a backup handgun in either an ankle holster or a secondary holster isn’t the worst idea in the world but it may be a bit impractical in a defensive gun use situation. You’re probably better served training to reload, fix malfunctions, and practice tactical handgunnery than carrying a secondary gun you may never get the opportunity to use.
