GRV01 how do those rhinos shoot? They look so weird I have always hesitated. I see you have what looks like 2 of them. Do they shoot well fast follow up shots, and accurate?

I wish i had a bumper sticker that read 'Ask Me About My Rhino' because recoil-wise i can say believe the hype: the Chiappa Rhino shoots like a dream

Nevermind the countless youtube vids of people saying the same thing, that man that chee-ahpah Rhino sure is ugly but has no muzzle flip and a good trigger. I bought (all factory, not reloading yet) some Remington 125gr +P SJHP and loaded them in the cylinder next to some 125gr FMJ and the only real way i could tell the difference which were which after giving the cylinder a Hollywood spin to randomize them was muzzle flash! My wifes accuracy and grouping improved while shooting hers *despite* switching to factory 158gr 357 JSP by PMC from 38s in the same range session.

Firing 357 is loud and bright and thats about it. Of course you have felt recoil but again, believe those reviews that say its coming back into your hand and arm and *not* trying to jump up out your hand like a cat being pet the wrong way. 357 out of the 2" Rhino is heard well more than its felt.

As for accuracy and followup i can say that first and foremost i am no marksman and certainly no pistolero and my first owned firearm was my 92 a few months ago followed closely by the Rhino but we're getting there and still practicing the basics so slow follow-ups are solely our fault and not the guns. The 2" Rhinos dont have adjustable sights whereas the 4" and up do but having said that, my wife and i both (and shes only been shooting, not only her Rhino but period, for a few months) group well even at 10yards, which out of a 2" snubby is pretty damn good. A popular youtuber theYankeeMarshall (whos a jackass but i feel has decent opinions on firearms) loves his 357 2" Rhino but recently dropped it from his EDC -- for a 4" Rhino in 40S&W!

In all, its a great gun, shoots beautifully​. My wife just said lastnight infact that if money weren't the issue shed own a 357 Rhino in each barrel length which im not sure but i *think* means she likes it :D I just may take her up on it because i love the 4" but we chose 2" since they're our dedicated carry weapons

Buy a recent one as ive heard the earlier models had some kinks in the design and you cant go wrong

And to tie it all together ill add that its a great combo to my 92 :)
