I was willing to give the Charter Arms professional a fair shake but no one has one in the case. that's too bad.

That's how gun stores work. Unless they have a gunbroker account, they're not going to bother buying an uncommon caliber handgun because they know the ammo isn't cheap or easy to find and most people will not be interested in it and it will sit on their shelf for years unless they can buy it cheap and sell it cheap because even Ruger's that are cheap enough and are chambered in anything will sell.

Until they get their issue with the barrel/front sight fixed, they're not worth messing with.

Bought one for my wife & for the first time she started to like shooting. Her's is 1.87" at 17 ounces & I've tried shooting the 327 mag ammo & it's a hand burner. For SD I like the 32 S&W Hornady 80 grain flex tip I also put on CT laser grips for her. I only use the laser when I'm speed drawing. It helps me to hit the target without aiming. The 327 is a great little revolver & very accurate. She's stopped using it do to illness so I carry it or my Glock 43X. Just depends how I feel. I think the going price is around $540.

It was a theoretical situation that is very plausible.

I have the 327 and 357 LCR revolvers. I only shoot 32 Long, 32 H&R mag, and 38 special in the LCRs. the 327 magnum and 357 magnum are nowadays just too much cartridge for me in a LCR snub.

I have ignored the 32 caliber for decades. I have come to appreciate it the older I get.
