In today’s world, often times the first and last line of defense for you and your family is simply the weapon you have on hand. Whether you live in a state that allows for open carry or you just need something to keep at home, a good full-size handgun ensures that you have plenty of ammo to take care of yourself and gives you the stopping power you need to stay safe as you navigate the city. Of course, not all options are created equal.
When selecting your self-defense weapon of choice, you must make sure that you always consider how reliable it will be and how accurate you can hit your mark with it by your side. Among the different caliber options out there, the .40 S&W has been a long-time favorite among many law enforcement organizations due to its balanced profile between stopping power and recoil control. For that reason, the Ruger SR40 may be just the kind of self-defense pistol you want at your side as you navigate the urban jungle.
Shoot with a Ruger SR40
Featuring a stainless steel slide and a precision barrel, the Ruger SR40 was built to perform. Its weight is kept down thanks to a durable, yet light glass-filled nylon frame. This frame offers a reversible backstrap that can be set to either flat or arched, allowing for you to customize the feel based on your own grip preferences. Beyond the comfortable grip, it also uses a smooth trigger pull, which was designed to ensure that you could have the best accuracy on your follow-up shots.
Speaking of accuracy, the 3-dot dovetail sights present a high-visibility option. The front sight is even raked to ensure you can quickly draw it from your holster without a snag. The slide was carefully designed to ensure it would reduce velocity and therefore diminish felt recoil. Meanwhile, it includes an integral mounting rail to allow for easy accessory additions.
Technical Details for the SR40
Appropriately chambered in .40 S&W, this model starts out by offering a 15 round magazine. Each of these 15 rounds can be accurately fired thanks to its 4.14” barrel, which uses a 6 groove design and offers a 1:16 right hand twist. Overall, the gun measures out to be 7.5” long, 5.52” tall, and 1.27” wide, making it great for all-day carry. More importantly, it weighs only 27.2 ounces, which helps to ensure that you can go about your business unencumbered.
