Chiappa Rhino
 
Anyone own or shot a rhino? I'm thinking about getting one. Any pros or cons you have found or noticed?

I noticed quick it was much more ugly than than a AMC Pacer but i hear they work :)

I've shot a rental at my range. Very smooth shooter, the recoil feels different because it just pushes straight back, so there is little muzzle rise. BUT it is so ugly, I don't think I'll ever own one. You should at least look at one in person. Also, KYGun has several blemished ones in their used gun section right now, in case you do decide to get one.

I've looked at them in person and they are badass!

Just like the Judge, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder". I've seen them in person and I think they are ugly. I would like to shoot one though. I think i is an interesting design innovation but nothing about the gun has eye appeal.

I've got a 6" Rhino that I use regularly for pin shooting,A very fast,smooth shootin revolver.It has virtually no muzzle flip,recoil drives it straight back.

I've never even seen one in person. But I watched Jerry Miculek's YouTube video on it. He says it has a crazy different grip angle. I'd like to hold me and see for myself, but I definitely like how my S&W 66 feels in my hand.

Weird, but cool, all at once ;)

I love the funky rail that comes to a point...useful as a hand-to-hand weapon if you get caught short after unloading it the fun way :D

I just saw one for the 1st time. Pretty wicked looking.
