    It's a Minotaur MTAC. Originally tan, I had it dyed black, and trimmed the clips.

    I have the 2" and the 4". I actually carry either one.

    These are the finest handguns I have ever shot. It is almost no recoil whatsoever. I get faster follow up shots with full house loads in these than the G27.

    I bought the 2" first. shot it and bought the 4". I like the additional muzzle velocity from it. 1500 fps @ 125 grain.

    If and when they come out with a .44 Magnum I will be first in line to buy it.

    Chiappa Rhino is a version of a previous handgun that had the same concept of placing the barrel at the bottom most cylinder. The bore axis is lined up with your forearm, not above it as with the conventional revolver. Mine are Single and Double action.

    When firing this weapon, there is little or no muzzle flip (I erroneously stated "recoil" in my picture post, that is wrong), I should have said "no muzzle flip".

    You can barely see the forcing cone on the bottom of the cylinder. The barrel obviously is a continuation from there and results in the strange looking barrel and shroud because the sights are at the top of the frame, of course.

    shooting a .38 Special in this is like shooting a cap gun. Almost no movement at all.

    With the bore axis lined up with your forearm, the recoil is straight back and there is little or no torque imparted to your wrist causing the muzzle to rise as, when the firing axis is above your forearm in a conventional revolver.

    The actual recoil is straight back and significantly less felt impulse than when coupled with a muzzle flip. Together they hit your wrist much harder.

    I had my 10 year old shoot this for the first time shooting a handgun and he shot almost 100 rounds before wanting to play with the .22 because it had a red/green dot and looked much cooler to shoot. No problem to shoot full house loads.

    It is such a pleasure to shoot, the only reason to limit my range time with it is the cost of the ammunition, not any physical discomfort.

    My snubbie version is just as easy and forgiving to shoot.

    It just puts out a huge ball of flame and a god awful lot of noise, but fun.

    As I have said before, This is such a comfortable gun to shoot I would buy a .44 Magnum caliber in a heartbeat, if it were offered.

    For now my only carry rig is this M&P 9c in a N8(2) pro series holster. 13rnds in the gun and 17 in my pocket of 124+p speer gold dot. Once my paper work comes back and my holster gets here, I'll be switching up between this and a Glock 30sf in a cross breed super tuck.

    I'm glad you asked. I did not know what it meant either.:shocked: I thought it had something to do with us forty-something men.
