Nice pistol
Nice shooting pistol. A little on the heavy side but well balanced. No FTF or FTE. Good range gun and home defense. Accurate right out of the box. I do recommend this.

Great First Pistol
This is a great first pistol purchase. Easy to operate and control and (knock on wood) has never jammed up on me. For the value, I’d be hard pressed to find a better deal.

Great first handgun
I've never owned a handgun before, and only fired a few dozen rounds before buying this Ruger. It feels great in the hand, fires well and on target as much as my untrained hand will allow, and is very reliable. For the price, I doubt you could do any better.

Solid and good looking.
So far, I've put around 800 rounds through the weapon. I should probably clean and lube it at some point.
The only complaint I have is that the mag well opening could be flared a bit more.
There has bee one failure to eject, when shooting with only my left hand. I'm assuming that's attributed to "limp wristing" the gun. Maybe, maybe not, considering how often I do that. There have been no failures to feed.
The trigger is very good for a gun bought for $365+FFL.
I'm glad I bought it.

Ruger has an All American !
Great shooter feels good in my hand and no thumb knuckle problems. The American has nice features and lines. Three easy to install grip sizes and two slick mags are a big plus along with fast takedown and smooth recoil make this pistol a great value . I find the weight of the fully loaded American not to be a problem and it can be carried best OWB or with the proper shoulder rig. This is a fine duty weapon and with 17+1 there is plenty of fire power. Anything else would be un-American !

Love the American
I am pretty much anti Ruger. I bought an American after watching a torture test video online. It is a great gun. I liked it so much, that it became my every day carry. I have since bought two more. Take it from a Glock guy, this is a fantastic handgun.
