I always said if I ever buy another revolver it would be a .357Mag. I like that you can also shoot .38spl out of a .357 cylinder. I was just browsing on-line when I found the Chiappa Rhino.

Man, this is an ugly revolver, ugly in a beautiful kinda way, at least to my eye.
The barrel on these things is mounted low, so that the bottom cylinder is the firing cylinder...weird. They range from $650 to $899, so maybe a little out of my price bracket. Never seen anything like it before and just thought it was a really interesting design.

That's definitely an interesting design. I do kind of like it though, simply because it is so different, nice find Sasquatch.

Exactly, AK. I don't know if there's ever been a revolver designed like this, might have been, but I've never heard of it. Did you happen to see the PDF instructions for a proper grip? > http://www.chiappafirearms.com/sites/default/files/manuals/Grip%20instructions.pdf
