I would have left it dirty and taken it back to the shop and broken it down in front of them and then asked them to explain a NIB being range gun dirty. Then I would have asked them how they felt they should make it right?

It's possible that it could have gotten out of Ruger having missed a final cleaning after test firing. And if it needed to have an extractor properly tensioned (or whatever) it's also possible that it had been fired more than just a few times in order to get everything right.
Or...for example if it was being test fired and the ejected brass was hitting the tester in the face - it would have needed to have the ejector adjusted and then test fired again.
It has been known to happen with all firearm manufacturers.

Nice looking pistol.
We have two Ruger handguns, the LCP and the LCR. Both NIB and the spent brass was included from the test firing. Needless to say however, both handguns looked immaculate even with the test fire being done at the factory. Plus, we are very satisfied with the quality and performance of Ruger guns. Maybe yours got past their inspectors, stuff happens.
Might want to alert Ruger's Quality Control Department with call or note, that way any future problems can be resolved before the guns get shipped to dealers.

It's a little upsetting but you spoke to the LGS and they seem honest so I'd let it drop. I'm reminded that even a new car will have a few miles on it since "New" is defined as never having a retail owner. If the price was good, the gun is good, and you are happy with it, I'd say it's a good deal.
