    I was watching wrestling last night (Yes, I watch wrestling. I am not ashamed of my white trash heritage.) and I saw a commercial for a TV show called "Covert Affairs." I had to rewind the DVR to make sure but the little blond lady in the commercial was toting a Chiappa Rhino. It was one of the "White Rhino" hard chromed models. That has to be the first time I have seen that in a TV series.

    PS: Yes, I am so pathetic that I sit around paying attention to the guns people use in TV shows.

    We all must admit, the Rhino is a bit of an unusual, eye-catching, revolver. Is this the future of revolver design?

    No, its a case of "if it isn't broke fix it until it is." Super complicated internals with a bunch of moving parts moves away from the simple function and reliability of a good revolver. To me it is form put ahead of function.

    And it has been done before. It didn't revolutionize revolvers then and it won't now.

    Does it feel much different from other revolvers when you fire it?

    Still, I'm known for having what's different and I'd take it. That is for free... But would I buy it would be a whole other thread. :winkkiss:

    I like different too and would quite happily take the item below. Hell, I'd even buy it, if I came across one for a decent price.

    I don't think you could give me that Rhino thing, though...especially not with what I have seen about Chiappa quality.
