Both Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. and Miami-based Security Solutions International, founder and publisher of the Counter Terrorist Magazine, are both very excited about the news and release of the SR40c™ pistol. America's premier informational journal for Homeland Security professionals, the magazine has the mission to provide First Responders with the relevant technical information they need to combat terrorism at home and abroad. The Counter Terrorist's aim is nothing short of our country's motto regarding the war on terror . . . Be Ready!

With global experts contributing articles on a wide range of relevant topics, the content of The Counter Terrorist is unrivaled by any other publication in the field. Its circulation has more than doubled in the last year and continues to grow at an increasing rate.

The Counter Terrorist magazine has grown exponentially over time. With this growth of paid subscribers, private sector companies are recognizing the value of featuring their products in this platform to reach prospective clients. One of these supporters is Sturm, Ruger & Company who has been working with the Counter Terrorist Magazine for over a year. The Counter Terrorist Magazine is happy to return the support and is glad to help Sturm announce the launch of their new SR40c pistol.

Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. is proud to announce the introduction of the Ruger® SR40c™ pistol. The SR40c is the compact version of the recoil reducing, striker‐fired SR40™ pistol, one of the slimmest and most ergonomic full‐sized .40 caliber pistols on the market today.

The SR40c is based on the same high‐performance glass‐filled nylon frame as those used on the popular SR9®, SR9c™ and SR40 pistols, offering the same, great ergonomic features, including a slim frame, short trigger reach, reversible backstrap, and ambidextrous controls. The SR40c features a through‐hardened, stainless steel or alloy steel slide with Nitridox Pro Black finish. Serrations on the front portion of the slide make it easier to manipulate the slide and press check the chamber.

"The SR40c provides all of the benefits of a full‐sized handgun without the recoil often associated with smaller .40 caliber pistols,” said Mike Fifer, Ruger CEO. "The SR40c offers yet another strong concealed carry option from Ruger, perfect for personal protection or law enforcement plain clothes and backup applications,” he continued.

The Ruger SR40c pistol has a 3.5” barrel and an overall length of 6.85”. The pistol weighs 23.40 oz. and features a height of 4.61", with the same slim 1.27" grip width (across safety levers) as the full‐sized SR40. It has a fully adjustable 3‐dot sight system and an integral accessory rail that accommodates most lights and lasers. The SR40c offers modern safety features such as a visual and tactile loaded chamber indicator, striker blocker, trigger safety, magazine disconnect and an ambidextrous, frame‐mounted manual safety.

The SR40c ships with two magazines that provide options in both capacity and grip size. The standard magazine holds 9 rounds and features a flat bottom butt plate; a finger grip extension floor plate is included. The second magazine features a grip extension and holds 15 rounds, instantly transforming the smaller, compact grip into a full‐sized grip. An anti‐friction coating is applied to the magazine body to reduce the force required to load the magazines to full capacity.

For customers living in states or locales where magazine capacity is limited by law, an SR40c is offered that ships with two, 9‐round magazines.

Thorough product reviews of the new Ruger SR40c are available now from well‐known industry writers Michael Bane at and Jeff Quinn at
