When you start to consider carrying a concealed firearm, a slew of concerns arise. Obviously, the most pressing concern is which handgun to carry. With a seemingly infinite number of concealed carry handguns available, choosing the handgun that is exactly right for you can seem a daunting task. Should you get a pistol or a revolver? What caliber? And these are only the beginning of the never-ending slate of questions with which you will be faced.

Luckily, Ruger knows a thing or two about concealed carry. Ever heard of the Ruger LCP? It is the quintessential concealed carry pistol. But for those who are not fans of the .380 ACP cartridge, Ruger now proudly produces the Ruger SR40c.

The Ruger SR40c is a semi-automatic, double-action-only, striker-fired, locked-breech pistol that utilizes a short-recoil operation and is, as its name suggests, chambered for the .40 S&W cartridge. Featuring an extremely light weight, a compact design and unmatched comfort, the Ruger SR40c looks to challenge other compact pistols in terms of performance and comfortable concealed carry. Additionally, the SR40c boasts a ton of practical features that place it in a class of its own. Each Ruger SR40c comes with one nine-round magazine, one 15-round magazine with grip adapter, a magazine loader and a hard plastic carrying case.

The Ruger SR40c is now available from for just $408.25.

It was in 1949 that Sturm, Ruger & Company, Incorporated, more commonly known as Ruger, was founded by William B. Ruger and Alexander McCormick Sturm. Since then, the Connecticut-based arms manufacturer has been recognized as a leader in centerfire and rimfire handguns and rifles and renowned for their reputation regarding both reliability and durability. It is that very same reputation that pushes the company to build upon their past successes like the P series to produce new firearms that surpass the old in terms of both quality and performance, which is exactly how the SR series came about. Without a doubt, the Ruger SR series – the Ruger SR40c in particular – has surpassed its predecessors on all fronts.

During recent years, the market for concealed carry firearms has continued to expand – growing even larger than the boom that came in the early 2000s. As such, arms manufacturers are forced to respond by designing and producing newer firearms that continually shrink in size, increase in capacity, carry reduced weights and boast increased ergonomics and ease of use. Ruger is one such manufacturer, and they responded in kind with the Ruger SR series. But neither the original SR9 nor the SR40 were enough. Enter the SR40c, which improved on all aspects of larger-framed SR40, including ergonomics.

Despite its reduced dimensions, the Ruger SR40c managed to retain all of the practical features that made the original Ruger SR40 so desirable. When it comes to ergonomics and ease of use, the Ruger SR40c easily shines as brightly as its large-frame counterpart. It features a unique reversible backstrap that allows a shooter to quickly adapt the size of the grip to their hand without the need to remove and replace inserts or the use of specialized tools. Moreover, it includes an ambidextrous manual safety and an ambidextrous magazine release that will be familiar to those who traditionally prefer the 1911. And like all worthy concealed carry pistols, the SR40c features practical safety features that never hamper the shooter's ability to reliably and accurately deploy the pistol. These include the aforementioned manual safety as well as a magazine disconnector, a firing pin block and a loaded chamber indicator.

As for the pistol itself, the Ruger SR40c features a 3 1/2 inch barrel and an overall length of 6.85 inches, both of which seem smaller when one accounts for its razor-thin width that measures just over an inch. The stainless steel slide contains rear serrations as well as all-new front serrations that provide a positive grip and allow for simple press-checks of the chamber. The slide combines beautifully with a black, high-performance, glass-filled nylon grip frame for a pistol that weighs just 23.40 ounces – just over one pound and easily managed by just about anyone. Also present is a three-dot iron sight system that features a click adjustable rear sight and a drift adjustable front sight -- surprising considering most compact pistols carry fixed sights. Other features include a trigger pull that is rated between six and seven pounds and a built-in MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny rail for the optional attachment of lights and lasers. As noted, each SR40c includes one nine-round magazine with an optional finger rest floor plate, one 15-round magazine with grip adapter, a magazine loader and a hard plastic carrying case.
