If you thought 30 Super Carry was all set to dethrone or kill .380 ACP, you’d be wrong because Ruger has just announced the latest addition to their handgun lineup. The new Ruger Security-380 pistol is a 15+1 capacity carry pistol featuring Ruger’s Lite Rack system which includes design features to allow for easier slide manipulations. Ruger calls the design of the Security-380 pistol “full-featured, ideally sized, and modestly priced.”

Ruger Unveils the New 15+1 Capacity Security-380 Pistol
Introducing the newest addition to the Ruger® Lite Rack™ family of pistols, the Security-380®. Chambered in .380 Auto, the Security-380 is full-featured, ideally sized, modestly priced, and designed for hours of range training with minimal fatigue.
The Security-380 will feature the Ruger Lite Rack system which includes refined slide serrations, pronounced cocking ears at the rear of the slide, and a lighter recoil spring. Not only will these features make the gun easier to rack for newer shooters, but the lighter recoiling .380 ACP cartridge should also be ideal for those who are looking for a less spicy experience at the range during their training sessions when compared to 9mm.
While the Security-380 shares its nomenclature with the much-loved Ruger Security-9, the 380 version of the pistol is almost an inch shorter in length, 3/4 of an inch shorter in height, and about 4 ounces lighter than the 15+1 capacity Security-9. In addition, the Security-380 still retains drift adjustable rear sights, a fiber optic front sight, internal hammer-fired action, and an external manual safety – a feature that many new shooters still want to have on their firearms.
The new Ruger Security-380 is available for order now through your local Ruger dealers and is being released with a suggested retail price of $369. Each new pistol will include two 15-round alloy steel magazines, a locking device, and a magazine loading assist tool. Ruger has also announced a State Compliant 10+1 capacity version that will have the same MSRP and features, just lacking the 15-round magazines.
