In theory I love that idea, but in practice every .22 snub like an S&W kit gun or my old Iver TP-22 just did not put the bullets where I wanted them. With the .32 you know it's a belly gun so ya don't even try.

Sorry for ya... but that's total BS. I've been shooting .32s since the 70s and have always found them to be very accurate. Trashing an entire class or caliber of weapons because you can't hit with them is a little over the top.

I think that as our population ages, more women are armed, and ammo keeps up it's progress , the .32 will be around a long time. Weak hands, arthritic hands, etc beg more easier to rack SD pistols. My .32's fit that bill nicely. Fiocchi's APHP SD ammo generates 161 ft-lbs at the muzzle, and gives 10" of penetration, not to mention Underwood and Buffalo Bore ammo. My decent sized .32's are easy to conceal and great to shoot ( Beretta M70 and FEG AP7) .

I was talking about the tiny .22s not the .32 and my .32 is a belly gun with almost no barrel. Have no knowledge of the larger versions and if I was "trashing" them it was not my intent.

I shoot my P32 at 75' and am hitting the target every time. The pistol is surprisingly accurate at those distances.

My Walther PP is pretty accurate out to about 60'( or 20 Yds.) even with a shooter with poor eyes...

Barrel length has nothing to do with inherent accuracy.

Sight radius has a lot to do with accuracy, though. Deny that, and you might as well resign as a pundit !

Sight radius has to do with practical accuracy. A shorter sight radius can be overcome with practice.

Practical accuracy is really all I care about. If anyone cares to go back and read the posts that brought us here, we were talking about one gun, the NAA Guardian and if it would be a good piece in .22 or .22mag NOT about every .32 ACP or even the .32 ACP round. I went through four tiny .22s before I gave up, and had any number of friends shoot them also. They don't suit my use and no one I know IRL has purchased and kept one. I have the GSG/Sig 1911-22 that does pretty well and a Ruger 22-45 that does damn good but I'm all done with the tiny rimfires....More for you!
