    neat gun. a bit bulky, but I like the styling. hardly any muzzle flip due to the low bore axis. Look at some youtube videos of people shooting the 2" with full .367 loads.

    I shot one a few months back and fell in love with it. The only problem is I can't afford the price tag. Otherwise it was the most fun .357/.38 I've ever shot. It's now my dream revolver! I got a few off-hand one-handed bullseyes with it.

    These are really accurate shooting guns. The "hype" about recoil is absolutely true followup shots and fast fire is as good as they claim. They carry better than they seem. Full house 357 mag with 125 grain HP can easily controlled.

    Downside it is a little expensive.

    I shot over 3000 rounds full house 357 mag through mine not one issue.

    I have the 5" rhino and I LOVE it. I wouldn't hesitate to suggest it.

    A Rhino in. 44 mag would really get my attention.

    As everyone will agree, initial cost is the only con. If I had the money though, it'd be in my rotation immediately. I did however read a few thoughts on how a regular top-barrel revolver is designed so if it blows up, the explosion goes upwards and blows the topstrap up. With the barrel being on the bottom, it would go down..to your hand. The odds of it happening with how solidly the Rhino is built wouldn't make me worry whatsoever.

    Don't know why, but I would love of get around one of the Chiappa tri-barreled shotgun...it's a side by side AND and over/under...as said, not sure what the attraction of this is other than the novelty, but I like coach guns and this would truly be interesting...same goes for the wheelguns. intrigueing designs.
