While there's no denying the recent trend toward micro-sized 9 mm pistols, there are some who simply want to carry a .380, or at the very least own one in their collection—including many NRA women. For those who gravitate toward the later, Ruger's newest addition to its Lite Rack family of pistols—the Security-380—is one to try. Here's why:  

The full-featured, modestly priced and ideally sized American-made Security-380 is constructed around a rigid, precision-machined, hard-coat anodized aluminum chassis with full-length guide rails and features a blued, through-hardened alloy steel slide and barrel. The lightweight slide features a vertical ledge on the steel rear sight and a bright fiber-optic front sight for rapid sight picture acquisition. Designed for new shooters, those who struggle with racking traditional slides, and anyone looking to enjoy a day at the range, the Lite Rack system includes refined slide serrations, pronounced cocking ears, and a lighter recoil spring to ensure easy manipulation of the slide.    

Unlike many micro-compact .380 pistols, this new offering will accommodate a full capacity, 10-round flush-fit magazine. Some models of the Security-380 also ship with an extended 15-round magazine that extends the grip for a secure and comfortable hold. The textured grip fills the hand and helps distribute recoil better than a narrow single-stack pistol.

The Security-380 combines Ruger's Secure Action fire-control system with a variety of safety features, including an integrated trigger safety, external manual safety, neutrally balanced sear with significant engagement and strong spring tension, and a hammer catch to help prevent the hammer from contacting the firing pin unless the trigger is pulled. The trigger has a short, smooth trigger pull, clean break, and positive reset. 

The Security-380 Lite Rack pistol is designed for hours of range training with minimal fatigue. The combination of easy-to-use features and reduced felt recoil will help recoil-sensitive shooters build skill and confidence at the range, and its lightweight and compact size makes it comfortable for all day carry. The Security-380 is based on the Ruger Security-9 platform and is compatible with most of the same holsters, lights, lasers and accessories available on ShopRuger.com

MSRP is $369.00. For more information on the Security-380, visit Ruger.com.
