Ruger Security 9 Review: Can a $300 Full Size 9mm be Any Good?

The following video is brought to you courtesy of the TFB TV YouTube Channel. Click the video below to watch it now.

In this episode of TFBTV, James Reeves reviews the new Ruger Security-9 pistol, a $300 (street price) handgun designed for those shooters who want a fullsize 9mm…for $300. Is this a budget 9 worth owning or just a bust? James tells you in today’s episode.

The Firearm Blog’s managing editor, Pete, reported the following release on December 27, 2017:

“Shooters looking for a capable, feature-rich polymer pistol with a value price point could be in luck. Ruger just announced the release of the Security-9 – an internal hammer-fired pistol with a manual safety and a fire control system with roots back to the LCP line of pistols. But, with only a cursory glance available to us at the moment, the most striking feature appears to be the price. With an MSRP of $379, we have a realistic chance at seeing the Security-9 break the $300 mark when it finally lands on local store shelves.

Besides the below spec sheets, real-world details on the Security-9 are still a bit slim. Even though there are two new models in the line, the only difference appears to be a 15+1 magazine configuration vs a 10+1 setup for restricted states.

Of course, Ruger’s new offering is only available in the king (and current reigning champion) of the caliber wars: 9mm.”


-Compact for easy concealment, the mid-sized Security-9® is designed to fit a variety of available holsters and concealed carry options.
-Rugged construction with blued, through-hardened alloy steel slide and barrel and high-performance, glass-filled nylon grip frame.
-Precision machined, hard coated aluminum chassis with full-length guide rails.
-The Secure-Action used in the LCP® II and Security-9® is derived from the reliable and proven hammer-fired LCP® fire control system. The Secure-Action combines the smooth trigger pull of the LCP® with the short, crisp feel and positive reset of a single action.
-Textured grip frame provides a secure and comfortable grip.
Dovetailed, high-visibility sight system with drift adjustable rear sight and fixed front sight. Sights can be easily changed out for different color options (available separately).
-Internal, Secure-Action hammer provides strong ignition force yet allows for easier slide racking when compared with many striker-fired pistols. Front cocking serrations enable positive slide manipulation.
-Safety features include bladed trigger safety; neutrally balanced sear with significant engagement and strong spring tension; and hammer catch to help prevent the hammer from contacting the firing pin unless the trigger is pulled.
-Safe, easy takedown with no special tools or trigger pull.
Also includes: two alloy steel magazines

MSRP: $379
