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) .
