I've recently found myself looking longingly at Rugers new Security-9 Compact. The looks of the pistol and it's very attractive price has really grown on me and, although I don't need another pistol and my wife would certainly not be happy if I started talking about buying one, I nonetheless find myself wanting to go the nearest gun store to fondle one. :D

So, what are the opinions on Ruger's newest compact? Please talk me out of this foolish endeavor. :(

seems it does not do anything better then the ec9s.just more rounds and weighs more.i hope that they are as accurate as the ec9s.

Just purchased one from a LGS. $312 out the door. It looks & feels hefty. I like the small size with a 10+1 capacity. It's fairly lightweight and flat plus it carries nicely concealed inside the waist. I'll be firing it for the first time shortly stoked with Blazer 115gr. FMJ.

Grip is way to short. Will need extended mag.

Feels like it was designed by 2 different groups with stated goals totally unrelated.

Did some shooting today. I've now put a total of 200 rounds thru it (Security 9 Compact) with Blazer Brass and Magtech 115 gr. FMJ.
Happy to report no malfunctions of any kind so far.

Will the 15 round mags from the full size fit in it.

Yes, and for $9.95 you can get a slip on sleeve (from Ruger) to fill the gap as it were.

Looked at the posted pic and frist thought was "needs more grip."

It comes with an extended mag baseplate for those who don't to wrap a pinky under. Frankly the stubby grip is why I would buy this gun. I prefer to carry at 3-4 o'clock. It is the grip that tends to print. If I wanted a longer grip, I'd get a different gun.

I would be interested in a long term review. I see this gun as a competitor to the G26, which is pretty well established.

I picked one up a couple weeks ago, took it to shoot. Used all reloads. First round failed to feed from the mag. After that, everything I ran though it worked just fine. Several mag changes, several bullet weights and styles. Worked perfectly and recoil was really nice for the size of the pistol and grip length. Almost every round was a headshot at 30 feet. Handed it off to a friend (experienced shooter too) and same results, all headshots. The extended mag baseplate made a big difference. Easy to field strip and clean, easy to reassemble. I'm happy with it.

I'll keep my American Compact, but I think with a pinky hook mag baseplate this might be a good carry piece. I agree the handle is usually the hardest thing to conceal and this takes care of that.
