I’m a .32 S&W Long fan. I’ve got a few Colt revolvers chambered in the little guy, but they’re all fixed sights. I’d been looking for a long time & just missed a PP Target in .32 that was in nice shape and actually affordable. The larger I-frame Officers Models in .32 have been too spendy (for me) for some time.

I decided to settle and picked up one of the 4.2” barreled SP101’s. A Hogue monogrip & it fits the hand like a glove...great sights as well. I’m still working on load development but it’s showing good promise.

I suspect that their popularity in the US is with Olympic Rapid Fire Mens Pistol.

I have a 6 shot S&W 2” revolver from the 1950’s (smaller then a J frame) that was used as an off duty gun by a NYC cop. Not sure why he didn’t use a .38. It’s a fun little gun.

Here is a good read on 32 caliber revolvers. The last paragraph is the most interesting of the whole article.

http://www.gunblast.com/WBell_SW32s.htm

I like my 32s more as trail guns than as target pistols. I shoot paper of course but I really like to walk around my buds property and just shoot targets of opportunity.

A semi auto in 32 would be neat but I would only shoot it where I could recover the brass. I did have a French model 1935 in 32 French long. It didn't have a mag when it was given to me but I finally found one at the gunshow. But I never could find ammo for it. I finally gave up and sold the gun cheap so I would stop messing with it. Its a hot round right on the lower end of a 32 mag round. This one looks like the one I had.
