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

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

    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.

    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).

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    started a topic Anyone tried the Security 9?

    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.
Working...
