Just for fun - Chiappa Rhino, which calibre?

Post by Slartybartfast on 9/10/2018, 10:00 am

First topic message reminder :

Okay, I have pretty close to zero experience with revolvers. But, there's a sale on Chiappa Rhinos and thought I'd pick one up for the heck of it.

60DS model, but in .357 Mag (in black) or 9mm (in chrome)?

Only interested in shooting targets, nothing else. So get 9mm so I don't add to the calibres I need to keep on hand and keep ammunition costs down? Or is there a compelling reason for me to get the .357?

The only negatives (beside people complaining about the looks) I've seen about the pistols is the moon clips aren't great (which reflects badly for the 9mm model if I understand correctly).

If you get a CCW permit, assuming you can, the waiting period is just enough time to drink a cup of coffee.    :-)

I don't "carry", but I hate waiting..........

Here (Canada, and worse Quebec) the wait is anywhere from 1 to 4 weeks. No such thing as a CCW permit (although theoretically there is, getting one is near impossible https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Concealed_carry#Canada). Other provinces can be as fast as same-day approval according to the store owner I bought from.
Don't want to talk politics, these are simply the facts of how things work here, but beside the above you only buy handguns for sports and targetshooting here.
If someone was interested in CCW I don't know how the heck you'd conceal a 60DS unless you're wearing a trenchcoat. Seems to me to be the type of firearm you buy because you want to open carry and you most definitely want it to be seen.

if you are referring to NICS check time, that varies by state,  

not all states use the CCW to skip the NICS check,
