    I have been looking for either of these guns at every gun store and show I could get to. No luck from Redding, CA to Tacoma, WA. I would absolutely love to try these guns out as they are both on my bucket list to buy and I have read that the Chiappa feels strange in ones hand.

    Precise Shooter up in Lynnwood, WA has an SP-01 Shadow Target in stock. I got mine there, and love it. LMK if you're ever in the Seattle area if you want to try it.

    If you get down to Tacoma again Welchers shows they have some of the Rhino's in stock. I would call before you make a special trip though as often what they show as "in stock" really means they can lay hands on one in days if you order it.

    Keith's did not have either one??

    Did you see Playboy Penguin's review of the Chiappa chambered in .40 S&W?? He says that it is the best model of Chiappa to carry for self-defense.




    Have you seen the insane number of Chiappas that he owns? He is probably a big part of the reason why you cannot find one for sale here in Oregon.

    Definitely try Keith's Sporting goods in Gresham. I haven't been there is a few months but I got my CZ P01 just over a year ago. They had the best selection of CZ pistols. Every now and the Sportsman's Warehouse has some. Cabela's Gallery of Guns may have a used one. You can search online.

    Are you a member at Albany Rifle and Pistol Club? Show up during a USPSA match. There will probably be lots of SP-01 Shadows. It's one of the most common Production division guns.

    I'm planning to shoot their match next month. I have 2 Shadows. This will tell you if you like the ergonomics.

    The Shadows have better triggers than a standard SP-01. On the other hand, the standard SP-01 still has a better trigger than any other standard military or LEO hand gun I've tried.

    Bit of a drive, but English Pit in Vancouver has a .357 Chiappa Rhino for rent. Just have to call them a few days in advance to make sure they'll have it on hand the day you visit.

    And SafeFire, a few minutes away from EP, has a CZ SP-01 .40 in their rental fleet.

    Boom ! Done !

    If the SP-01 is a 40, it's a decocker model. The safety model has a better trigger and better ergonomics. I hate the decocker on the steel guns.

    You don't need to be a member to just "Show up" at a USPSA match. Heck--I'm
    not a ARPC member (am a Dundee member) and I've been shooting USPSA
    at Albany since 2002.

    So you are suggesting that we go to a USPSA match and while it's happening I let him blast off a few rounds?

    That's really good to know. I've got the hots for a Chiappa Rhino and I've been dying to try it. I'm even near Vancouver.

    Hunting a Rhino is on my bucket list as well. Good luck getting one. :)

    I have the 9mm safety version.
    The basic ergonomics are identical....it's virtually the same gun, IMO, except one has a de-cocker and one has a safety.

    The position of the decocker completely messes up my grip. The Omega decocker is much better.
