I picked up a new weapon over the weekend. I wanted something to keep full time in my wife's car. She and I have tried on an assortment of different handguns and settled on a Ruger Security 9. It seems to have slimmed down the chunky feel of so many of the double-stack high capacity automatics and that is important to me. My trigger finger is short most of the last joint. I lost it in an industrial accident many years ago. While pistols with grips similar to the 1911 colt fit great in my hand many of the high capacity guns in recent years just don't feel right in my hand. I would have to adjust my grip slightly and take the recoil more on my thumb than into the web of my hand. The Ruger's have always had a great feel to me. The MarK 1 target pistol that I have is the most naturally pointing weapon that I have ever shot. You can point it more than aim it and get great results. This gun seems to fit me that way too. It has a lot of features that I sort of insist on, the biggest being that you can fire it without a magazine in it. If you lose or damage your magazine you still have a functioning weapon. If you will drop and reload before you run dry there is never even an instant when your weapon is disabled. The other thing I like about it is the price. I hate to throw a 6 or 7 hundred dollar gun in a glove box. I've known too many people that lost guns at car washes and such. At 350 dollars the Ruger is a lot less expensive. All of the reviews that I have read say that basically it is similar to a Glock and that while it may not have as fine an accuracy for targets it is all in the 10 ring on a target at 25yards so it has a combat accuracy that is fine. I've owned 7 or 8 Rugers and they all have held up well and been dependable. I expect this one to be no different. I'm going to the Range next week and break it in and let my wife get used to it. I have had excellent accuracy with the little single stack LC9pro and used it for qualifying for the concealed carry shooting test. This gun has a better grip and a longer barrel so as long as I can cover up a 10 round group of holes in a target with the palm of my hand after shooting from 25 yards I'm pleased.
