I'm wondering how much difference there is between the security compact and taurus g2C, anybody own both? I have an LC9 and the Taurus I got the Taurus to have more rounds but it just doesn't carry as well as the LC9. I want to replace the LC9 so I'm thinking of an ec9s but if the security 9 compact is really smaller then the Taurus I may want to go that way. Also wondering if the holsters i have for the LC9 would work with the compact. Thank you

I picked up a Security-9 Compact and instantly knew it wasn't for me. I have a few of the Taurus' and they fit my hand like a glove and shoot every time. There's no comparison between the feel of the 2. The Ruger is a large gun with a lopped off grip frame. No thanks.

I do wish Ruger made the G2c, though :)

I have never held or seen a Taurus G2c. I have multiple friends that think they are the cats meow. I have shot the LC9, and thought it was great except for the single stack magazine. I have an KelTec P-11, that shoots good like the LC9, so I have no need to change out a trusted weapon, though two years ago I almost bought an LC9. We live in an unprecedented time in history, where we have so many choices! Good luck finding what works for you.

I had a Taurus PT-111 G2 (it was the precursor of the G2C). It was a nice size. My two dislikes about it were the blued finish & the trigger. I kept a thin coat of Johnson's Paste Wax on the one I had when I carried it to keep it from a rusting. I believe a stainless version is available for very little more money than the blued. The trigger on the one I had broke a really long way back. Some folks say the G2C trigger is better. I honestly don't know. It is a $200 pistol that works. I think if you dig around online you might be able to find it cheaper. I honestly don't know about prices for the Security 9 compact.

I may have missed something but I think the Security 9 compact sells for around $300. If I was going to spend that much & wanted a Ruger I would look at a SR9c or the Ruger American 9mm Compact. I saw the RAP 9C at CDNN a week or so ago for around $300. I guess it depends on how much you want to spend.

Right now you can get an SR9C for around $300.00, a far superior gun to either of those.

I bought the G2C at rural King a month ago. It was on sale for $189 and had a $25 rebate on top of that. For $164 I couldn't pass it up.
I like it, It shoots good, about 300 rounds thru it and no malfunctions, adjustable sights, 12 round mag.
I used to have an LC9 but really didn't like it so I sold it.

I think they are such a good value I picked up a couple of the Taurus. Hard to beat for the price.

There are certainly some good prices out there. Rather than buy a Security compact, I'd prefer the Ruger SR9 which is a very nice gun. I've got a couple of them and never had a problem with one. But to me this is a good deal. https://www.cdnnsports.com/rugerr-sr9r- ... WwvCC5Ki70
All for $300. It's got free shipping but there is a $5.00 adult signature fee. Still it's hard to beat.

I bought a G2C in December 2018, I have just south of 2000 rounds thru it and it has been flawless from day 1. I do clean and lube after every firing and carry this gun daily, I will buy another as soon as I save and can get a stainless slide, mine is black and even tho I have no rust the finish isn't that good. In my opinion the G2C is the best deal in a semi auto handgun.

Picked up a G2C Monday, went to the range Wednesday....75 rounds - no failures of any kind - without a doubt the worst trigger I have ever experienced. A Hi Point .380 a friend was shooting was an improvement over the Taurus.

You will get used to the trigger.

The trigger was my biggest dislike about the Taurus I had. If someone were to come up with an inexpensive trigger kit for them they could probably make a fortune.

I recently got a good deal on a regular security 9, i could not hit with it as it was bad left and wouldn't group. there was something inside the chamber and barrel that wouldn't remove even with brushing. i called ruger and they did send a return label, i however sold the gun with the return label. I went and got another G2C, it shoots as good as my first and will keep it in case i need service on my first one. I still love ruger and will buy their guns again but will inspect them a little better like I do Taurus.
