The Ruger Security 9 Pistol at the 2018 SHOT Show
Rob Reed 01.27.18
The latest centerfire pistol from Ruger, the Ruger Security 9, is a value-priced autoloader for concealed carry and home defense.
The mid-sized pistol has a polymer frame, is hammer-fired, and uses 15-round standard capacity magazines (10-round magazines are also available). The name is reminiscent of the company’s earlier (and now long-discontinued) Security Six revolver line. With a MSRP of $379, the Security 9 is positioned to offer a value-priced alternative to the company’s other defensive pistols.
