The Ruger American Pistol at the 2016 SHOT Show

Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. Announced their new Ruger American pistol right before the 2016 SHOT Show.

The polymer striker-fired gun supplements the company’s earlier SR series of plastic pistols.

I was able to fire a few rounds through an example at the 2016 SHOT Show Industry Range Day. While this was not nearly enough to do more than get a feel for the pistol, I did find it to be an interesting design and look forward to trying one out more thoroughly soon.
