The big new announcement going into the SHOT Show new gun intro season — so far, anyway — is the Ruger American Pistol. It’s still awfully early, but initial reports look promising. Look for our full-frontal take on the gun this week. One thing’s for sure though; lots of the new 9’s and .45’s will by flying off the shelves. The gun world is full of early adopters and those who just have to be the first to pull the latest and (purportedly) greatest new gun out of their bag at the range. Sometimes that works out well and sometimes, not so much. Lots of gunnies won’t lay their cash on the barrel head until a new design has proven itself. However long that is. How long do you wait before buying a new gun?
