Ruger Security 9 Variations & Comparables
The Glock G17 adheres to the elements of Glock you’ve come to expect. With a 9mm chambering, the full-size semi-auto pistol features familiar Glock ergonomics and performance. It’s a reliable shooter and durable — it won’t stop until you do. For slightly smaller versions, check out the G19 (midsize) or the G43X (compact).
Like other Glock products, the G26 — affectionately called the “Baby Glock” — is designed to be just as durable and accurate as its predecessors. It comes with a 10-round magazine, so you don’t get as much firepower as you would with bigger 9mm Glocks, but its small size makes it great for concealed carry or as a backup gun.
The Ruger Security 9 has lots of specs similar to the Glock 19, but at half the price. It’s almost the same size, has the same 15+1 capacity, and similar grip angle. For those looking for a first carry piece but don’t want to splurge on a G19, this is a great option. It’s reliable, concealable, and easy to rack due to a lighter recoil spring.
