BigBore, you're on the right path! Ruger has indicated ranges in the U.S. where you can go and shoot their new Ruger American pistol for free. Me and a buddy called to do this in a town that neither of us had visited before but it wasn't far from us. It was actually a gun store with an attached shooting range in a strip shopping center. We got to shoot five rounds each but I was amazed at the number of people coming in to use that range. We were talking as we left that place that it was a little gold mine. There's a ton of people out there that have no place to shoot and this is an indoor range which completely eliminates the cold weather factor. Nothing's better than a gun store that sells pistols, ammo and targets and has an indoor range next door with access only through the gun store. Wish I owned one! P.S., the owner, in my opinion, probably rented two store fronts side by side so that he could have his gun store in one with access to the range in the adjacent one, sweet!
