I don't own any .32 caliber handgun, but I've shot a couple.
I've shot a Beretta 3032 Tomcat and found it to be fun and easy to shoot for a mouse gun. I think it'd be a good backup concealed handgun.
I've also shot an old S&W .32 Hand Ejector in .32 S&W Long and basically the same results as the Beretta, except I wouldn't carry that beautiful antique.

My vote goes to the Beretta M70, in .32 ACP . I love the feel of the 70 series pistols .

Every 70 series that I've handled has been SA . Carry either cocked and locked, or draw and rack the slide "Israeli style". I'm planning on a 70 in both .32 and .380 to go with my .22 .

Beretta Tomcat 3032 - Tiny. Crimson Trace does make a laser grip for it. Its a break away, one in the chamber manually, and insert the mag. Seen it slide bite, though no problems personally. Sellier & Bellot ammo seemed to really cause some pain from the discomfort of pressure after a couple mags worth of ammo. Mouse gun. $300 bucks new at most sporting goods stores.

Only new production .32 I've ever bought. Not really for me, really is too small. Most ladies who fired it did not care for it, due to how bad it can sting with certain ammo.

I'll stick to my LCP with wallet style holster, though .380

Default OK - I like .32s

My NAA Guardian has been a real performer. I've owned this gun since 2004 and it has at times been one of my favorites when concealment trumps. At 10 yards and in it will print fist size groups easily which is not bad for it's small sights.

My Manurhin Walther PP is my most carried semi-auto. This little gun has run like a Swiss watch with every type of .32 ACP ammo I've run through it. Recoil is light, accuracy is tops and the 9 shot (8+1) capability make this a very respectable package. I really like the longer slide on the Model PP.

Interarms PPK/S in .32 ACP. This is another performer. Pure Walther quality, this is a true classic in all aspects.

I wonder how long before the Beretta Pico becomes a favorite? It comes in .380 but you can buy a .32 acp conversion barrel. Seems like a good idea.

Thats what i'm waiting for. Meanwhile, with my PP being bigger then MY LC9 i'll keep using the FEG as the "back-ups Back-up"....

I've carried my NAA Guardian for over 10 years. It certainly would be considered a belly gun, but I've shot the hell out of juice cans 10-15 yards away and can't complain. I've probably put 300+ rounds through it over the years without any ftf. I carry Federal hydra shok hp for sd with reasonable confidence considering it's only a .32. Being SS and not a light alloy it is heavier than most others in it's class, but that weight is appreciated when firing it.
