 New Ruger American, I got to shoot one, man is it a nice pistol. Ambi magazine release, and slide lock. Along with a glock style trigger with half the travel as my glock with a trigger stop. Out of the box 10 shoot group was great, size of a golf ball at 21ft. After 100+ rounds groupings got tighter. I really am a glock guy, but this new ruger has me thinking about getting one of these. Msrp is $575, comes with 2 17Rd mags, and 3 different back straps. I'll post pictures when we get one in at the shop.

This intrigued me when I saw it was coming.  I am slowly squirreling away money for a 1911.   I was "told" that the amount I want to spend on 1911 is too much, so I have to slowly "sneak" a little at a time.  In the mean time, this may be in the "acceptable" range.  I'll be waiting for a write up.

I would take this over a 1911 anyday, but I am not a fan of 1911's. Hoping to have some soon in at work, and I'll get some more info and pictures of it.

Do you work at a gun shop?
.308 holes make invisible souls.

Hickok45 has an interesting and kinda disappointing video about the new Ruger American Pistol. If you read down in the comments, Military Arms Channel, another great youtube gun reviewer also had some not so good things to say about it. I thought it looked pretty good. I was looking forward to giving it a try.
