I think it is kinda an 'off' caliber.

The .32 has generally lost popularity -- there are more potent calibers that can be had in the same size gun as a .32 these days. I have only owned one in my life, and that was a 1903 Colt pocket automatic, which I picked up for a good price at a gun show simply because it had such pretty lines. A very elegant gun -- sigh, I sold it during one of my lean times.

If I were to buy one, I'd look at the Beretta .32 Tomcat.

Why a .32, and not a .380?

Because I already own a .380. It's kinda just to say I own a gun in that caliber. Just to add to the collection.

Well, if it's just to have that caliber in your collection, look at the 1903 then. It's a classic.

I have an old Walther PP in 32 acp. It is very accurate. I have thought about getting a Ruger single-action in 32 but have not bought one yet.

In order...

Beretta Tomcat (DA/SA, best trigger system of the group hands down)

Seecamp LWS32 (Overpriced w/ sucky DAO length trigger pull, but quality build)

NAA Guardian (Overpriced and overweight with sucky DAO trigger length, but quality build)

Master Piece Arms MPA32 (Horrible trigger pull, but adequately priced)

KelTec P32 (Questionable quality reports, let alone terrible trigger length & a mushy and uneven trigger pull, but cheap to reflect it all)

I have a cz-70. It's a good gun never had any problems with it. But I have big hands and its kind of to small for me. I just wish .32 ACP was cheaper and easier to find.
