If buying a .32 for carry (CCW) I'd get the S&W 632 in .327 Fed mag.

Today, they're hard to find at reasonable prices.

I alkso like the original PPK. not the PPK/S.

PPK .32---"Bond, James Bond."

With the advent of the 32 H&R Magnum and the great 327 Magnum I'm amazed that revolvers chambered for them aren't more popular. I have a S&W Model 632 in 327 that I find to be remarkably versatile and quite adequate as a defensive firearm. There are so many good 327 and 32 H&R loads out there, we just need more good revolvers. I think if Ruger brought out a 327 chambered LCR this calibre would really become popular. I love mine and enjoy shooting 32 S&W longs through it. S&W and Ruger obviously follow market trends and if a model doesn't sell well it is dropped. I had hoped the 327 Magnum would've breathed new life into the 32 calibre realm. I still hope so.

Prolly the Walter PPK, but the only one I have fired was a .32 long Iver Johnson. The old gun had terrible accuracy. I did use it to dispatch a possum. After 3 shots, that is...

I have a .32-20 S&W which I hand load for. The .32 WCF loaded with HP bullets and running at full throttle is a powerful accurate handgun. I do not use it as an urban carry gun but it would serve.

My vote goes to Kel-tec P32. Runs 100% and is a pleasure to carry

As far as the ammo, stick with Fiocchi or Geco or Seller and Bellot. They are loaded to military specs and produce at least 100 fps more than American ammo. Not to mention that Fiocchi is about $12-14/box, very affordable.

Wonder where you get your .32ACP Ammo?!?!?!?!?! Because here the cheapest box of .32ACP is Winchester and it's 23-26 Bux per box...FInocchi & Bellot run closer to 35 a box...(happen to have some...) As for the Kel-Tec, I can't even Find any of the .32/.380/.9mm's around,..and the .22 Mag(Pmr-30) is running from $900-$1100 Bux!!! Would Do "His & Her's" P-32's if they were around...One place had a "USED" one for $500.!! For That I'll buy another Walther!
