Chiappa Rhino Revolver – SHOT Show Media Day 2011

Category : Handguns, SHOT Show 2011, Video


Revolutionary is the only word I can think of to describe the Chiappa Rhino. It’s the only revolver I’ve wanted to buy for a long time and I like and own revolvers. The Rhino departs from the traditional revolver in that it shoots from the bottom cylinder instead of the top like we are used to seeing. For as large as it looks, its extremely lightweight and not all that thick. The cylinder is machined flat to keep the gun as narrow as possible. Even the 2″ barreled gun was an absolute pleasure to shoot with full power .357 Magnum loads. The barrel is much lower and so just pushes straight back into your hand. Almost no muzzle flip.

Ruger LC9 9mm – SHOT Show Media Day

Category : Handguns, Self Defense, SHOT Show 2011, Video


The Ruger LC9 is a great addition to Ruger’s handgun lineup. I own a .380 sub-compact but would rather run than shoot someone with it. I don’t buy into the story that a .380 is enough gun but think it might be better than nothing. The LC9 solves both the sub-compact easy to carry problem and the power issue, so I think it’s a great product. I thought that the recoil was quite manageable and not too uncomfortable. However, after watching the guy next to me shoot in the
