    Well this one is very intriguing!!

    Any one seen or shot one of these Chiappa 357's? Thoughts?

    Looking to purchase one in 5" and in the brushed nickel. Seen the 2" version in black at local GS. Made here in Dayton. Range officer says the 2" shoots great
    but longer barrel would be cooler.

    Wow. Just looked at their site. Those are some seriously ugly firearms, but they have some good reviews.

    Yep. not the most classic of designs but interesting no less. The reviews are always positive that is what makes me curious.

    I have a good friend who has really wrung out a Rhino that he purchased late last year and says it has an amazing ability to mitigate recoil. He really knows his stuff so I sit up and listen when he says the Rhino is accurate and effective. I'm pretty hide-bound but the ugly thing has at least made it onto my extensive "want" list, something that polymer pistols have yet to do.

    I find them strangely neat-looking honestly. It kind of reminds me of the revolver from Firefly that the captain uses...

    I too have been looking at them. Some nice reviews on youtube. I love the looks of the gun... its great to see someone break the mold from traditional firearms, take a risk, and come up with something truly new and inventive. A++ for me...bunker

    You watch the Spotsman Channel, too, huh? lol
    Interesting idea. Someone posted a Russian (?) gun here a while back with the same concept. I believe that one was a snubby.

    I think it is UGLY but the idea is pretty awesome an the recoil looks minimal.

    It actually seems to have no muzzle flip/rise at all during rapid fire.

    +1 to that. What really got my interest is the brushed nickel and people's comments. Good chance I'll be getting one and will give a brief review.
