Ruger Security 380: Deep Concealment Perfection

In the concealed carry world, the ease with which someone can actually conceal a firearm is of the utmost importance. It’s also something that varies from person to person because not everyone has the same body shape and size. Enter the Ruger Security 380, a sub-compact pistol created with concealed carry and deep concealment in mind. This is a gun created by a renowned manufacturer that’s designed to be used and carried.

The Ruger Security 380 is part of the gun maker’s Security family of handguns. Like its popular predecessor, the Security 9, this 380 ACP chambered pistol is meant for self-defense applications.

Thanks to its sub-compact dimensions, it’s also ideal for concealment. The gun has an overall length of 6.52 inches, a height of 4.35 inches, and a slide width of 1.02 inches. Its barrel is 3.42 inches long with a 1-in-10 twist rate and six grooves.

And while concealability is a key feature of the gun, so is capacity. The Ruger Security 380 boasts a 15 +1 capacity, meaning it far outdoes most other 380 ACPs on the market.

Features of the gun include:

  • The Lite Rack system has refined slide serrations, easy-to-grab cocking ears at the rear of the slide, and a lighter recoil spring. These features and more make this gun’s slide easier to manipulate.
  • Chambered in 380 ACP, a popular defensive round.
  • Designed to be fantastically compact for ease of concealment.
  • Despite its smaller size, the gun ships with full-sized magazines with either a 10 or 15-round capacity.
  • Ergonomically made for a comfortable fit in the shooter’s hands.
  • Created for superior recoil distribution for rapid target acquisition and accuracy.
  • Lightweight slide with a  drift-adjustable steel rear sight with a vertical edge and a brightly colored fiber optic front sight to draw the eye to get on target faster.
  • It features the company’s proven, trusted Secure Action fire-control system with a protected internal hammer and safety blade trigger.
  • The trigger offers a short, smooth pull, a clean break, and a positive reset for improved trigger control and accuracy.

  • The gun features a variety of effective safety features. The trigger safety, external manual safety, neutrally balanced sear, and hammer catch help prevent the hammer from contacting the firing pin unless the trigger is pulled. 
  • Rugged construction with through-hardened alloy steel slide for resistance to wear and tear and greater longevity.
  • One-piece, precision-machined fire control chassis for durability and reliability.
  • High-performance, glass-filled nylon grip frame textured for a sure grip, even with wet hands
  • Accessory rail for easy addition of lights or lasers.
  • Takedown is easy and requires no special tools. Even better, the trigger doesn’t need to be pulled prior to takedown.
  • Ships with two alloy steel magazines, a magazine load assist, and a locking device.
