  • Anyone tried the Security 9?

    The Security 9 is a bit of an odd handgun that Ruger started producing this year. It is a full sized 9mm that is hammer fired, with a concealed hammer. It is DAO.

    It looks pretty cool. I'm not a huge fan of DAO, but at the same time it can be alright.

    Anybody tried it? Price is right.

    According to this review, not a 'True' DAO. (his words)

    It also has very similar specs to a glock, as you noted - price point is rather appealing

        Budget friendly, but unlike most other Ruger centerfire autos NOT Plus P rated. The internal chasis is aluminum not steel.

          That puts it into the "don't buy" category, which is too bad. I liked the look of it. But I can't have guns that won't take all my other gun's ammo.

            I would stick with the Ruger American...a couple of bucks more new,but steel internals. You know it'll go " bang" as opposed to " boom!"should you run something warm in it.

              It's too bad about the +P, MAC gave it a good review on his Youtube channel. I did some additional research, and a lot of people have shot +P in it without an issue. Ruger says that +P will increase wear and tear on the gun, but that you can shoot it in it. That might be OK for a carry gun, since you could practice with regular 9mm. Not particularly sold on it, but I wouldn't tell people not to buy one.

                Looking at the owners manual on Ruger.com right now, and the only ammunition restrictions for the Security 9 is NO +P+ ammo. SAAMI, U.S., NATO spec is perfectly fine per the manual.

                  Hmmm..I have a great quantity of PPU" NATO" 124 grain ammo...actually a bit warmer than NATO ball... I use it in my Sig2022.. I wonder if it'd be OK in the Security 9?

                    One review said they even shot Buffalo Bore +P+ in it without issue. I probably wouldn't, but someone has.

                    In this video by MAC, he fired 300 rounds without cleaning or oiling it first and used Fiocci which is a little hot. He had no problems except for tight mags (normal in a new gun).

                      One of my boys has one in some shade of tan. He likes it. I haven't shot it myself, so I can't opine....but then I'm the one who passes right by the autoloader cases going straight to the revolvers.

                        A friend has one. I wasn't impressed. I thought his Smith & Wesson SD9VE was the better handgun.

                          One would think.......that with all the litigation against firearm manufactures today........they would not make ANYTHING!!!! That some Moron, would find a way to "explode" it.........

                          But then again.........if they actually specified that certain ammo is NOT to be used........their azz is covered???

                            No company certifies +P+ ammo since it isn't spec. Ruger actually says +P is fine to shoot in this weapon, as I have learned after researching it. Although they do stipulate that while it won't blow up that it will increase "wear and tear" on the pistol. Which means the guiderod spring will have to be replaced more often.

                              Yea.........I should have known. Rugers are built like tanks!! They have always been generally "over-built"...............
