An, ugly, painful and swappable grip caused complaints for most shooters and seemed to force most shooters to shoot left. It’s also a little obese, the trigger reset is unimpressive, and there are other guns in this price range that perform better.

I am NOT enthused about this one, at all.

We take a first look at the new Ruger American Pistol in 9mm. The Ruger American Pistol is a sibling to the popular SR9. The new Ruger pistol offers multiple back straps, lacks a manual safety and is a bit wider and heavier than the SR9. I share my initial thoughts on the gun in this first shots video.
