    Never seen a Rhino, but had the chance to shoot (or try to take successive shots with) a Chiappa 1911-22 that a fella had at the range. The 22 was NOT anything approaching a decent-quality product. I am not impressed with Chiappa firearms.

    Wheelguns bleed energy right out the cylinder, not to mention leaking muzzle blast before the round gets to the end of the barrel. Nope! Gimme my Sig P-226N in .40S&W, you can have the rest!

    You will NEVER find a decent holster for one...

    I haven't shot one, but I have handled one. Decent ergo's... the design is to lower the barrel to be more in line with the wrist/grip. Less muzzle lift...more straight back push. Quicker second shots...you get the idea.

    I have handled and shot them.

    Not terribly impressed with the quality .

    I would stick with a S& W if you want a revolver. get a used model 15, 17, 19, 27, 29 revolver.

    For a semi auto stick with SIG or H&K

    Pay more but they hold their value very well and are bomb proof

    For a bit less
