I'd love to try the Rhino and compare the felt recoil with a conventional .357 of the same weight.

I reckon the recoil would be sharper due to the fact that the gun will not roll in the hand like a conventional revolvers.

Definitely complicated action inside (and I looove complicated stuff) Razz
Interesting piece of an over engineered tool of sport, pity its butt ugley!!

Laughing Tactical-Utilikilt! I like it! Very Happy

Dont let Bushy see it- he hates my legs. Shocked

I bet the 4-5" Rhino shoots awesome. Felt recoil has to be down due to the lower axis. This kills roll/snap, directing energy directly rearward to larger bones and muscles. Think more shove less snap. Not like the Bisley that kills roll on a high-centered roller- ya want roll on small grips, more slip = less snap to your hand. I much prefer plow's to Bisley, they re-cock easier too.

Plus it has a rail for night time bunny-bustin! I love the look of the longer 4-5" version. Nomral DA revolvers are pretty complex too, but, I'd like to let the design be proven out for a while. I rarely like being one of the first one's ta jump on a wagon that has reinvented wheels.

Sorry this may be a little late but I do have the Burris scout and I really like it with the low power and extended eye relief, if you leave both eyes open during target aquisition it is really fast. especially in the thick stuff 'round here. also the glass quality seems very bright for a low powered scope.

That's Awesome stovepipe, my everyday bike is a cyclocross w\ a rack and rear fender, kinda toury. I am riding a 60 miler tomarrow called the Jasper Disaster. I added a brooks b-17 about a month ago and love it. I contemplated a roadbike when I started but the roads and stuff around here are better suited to a more robust design. However I am putting together a road bike now, kinda like rifle building; right now I am in the parts accumulation stage. My favorite carbines of all-time are the cute little Mannlicher Schoenauer fullstocks I have a couple of their carbines and a halfstock rifle. However the Remington 7's have a similiar feel as do the fullstock rugers. The Winchester 70 featherweights feel alot like a European sporter to me, but the original M.S.'s are in a class all their own. The rotary magazine and trapdoor buttplates along with a magazine unloader contraption that dumps all the shells in your hand at the push of a button are just some of the little doo-da's that multiply their coolness beyond the cosmetic perfection.

To avoid cluttering up this thread I'll start one in the "General" for our Bicycles.

Back to the Ruger: Wink

I have one issue with the design & that is the magazine - WHY did they make it single stack?
A 10 round double stack would be much better in the handling department & reduce the chance of it catching on snags, plus it would let the shooter get really low down if needed.
It's as long as a FAL magazine & I know what a pain THAT can be when engaging targets downhill.

I think Ruger likes the thin grips and the double stack would widen it.
All their revolvers have slender grips too.
I won't pretend to like auto loaders - I hate chasing brass! As a reloader it aggrivates me no end to hunt the brass I have fired so that I can reload it.

I've worked up two solutions to relieve my frustration in this matter. I modified my gas block to turn off the gas so that I operate the AR as a straight-pull bolt action. When I run it semi-auto, I use a grass catcher (no I didn't mis-type brass) from my old lawn mower held up by plastic pipe to "snag" the brass as it comes flying out.
