Default That 327 again

OK, the 327 is not a 357. On the hand the 357 is not a 44 mag--so what.
Big is good does not mean small is bad. How many bad folks when shot with a 22LR are going to stay around and say, "You shot me with that little piece of s...." They will most likely run off, they don't have to be dead, just gone, or stopped. What the heck, the 25ACP was good enough for james Bond. And look at all the loads: 32 S&W, 32 S&W Long, 32 H&R mag and tghe new kid on the block a great little, yes i did say little, 327 fed mag. Which bye the way does not kill the wifes hand for 3 or 4 days shoting it.

Chucko, no need to get bent out of shape with your first 2 posts. You like the 327, I don't....OK. If your wife is happy with it and feels comfortable, that's all that matters. I'm not going to trade my SP101 in 357 for it though.

Welcome to the forum! Why not stop by the introduction area and let everyone know you're here.

I have two carry guns, one is the SP 101 .327, which I love. I also have a SP 101 .357 and prefer the .327. It's more controllable with my smaller hands. My other one is the Ruger LCP .380 in Rasberry. I have seen what both can do to a piece of plywood. I have no doubt whatsoever in the stopping power of either of these guns. I would think the bad guy would be more pissed at being shot with a little bitty pink gun though. And best of all, I am proficient with both of them. May look into a Ruger 9mm auto a little later, but for now I have both of the guns that are exactly what I want.

Default wife likes the .327 magnum

My wife could not stand the recoil of a .38. So she opted for a S&W 632 .327 magnum. A little tight on the trigger, but just about zero recoil.

bisbob, stop by the introduction area and let everyone know you are here. So you can really tell that much difference between a 38 and 327 mag?

I just moved out of Asheville about a year ago....job opportunities may take me back. I do miss the mountains.

Default 327 vs. 38

It was my wife who prefers the 327 to the 38. I'm not crazy about it. But It is for her. I much prefer my Glock 19.

Well, you wouldn't wear the same shoes as your wife would you? A personal firearm is a person's own choice. I carry a SP-101 .327 and I love it. And best of all, you should see the holes in can blow in a piece of plywood. Now, if they just came in pink.........

Default .327 ammo

The "bad" thing about her 632, is the general lack of .327 magnum ammo. Had to buy a box in Alabama! Short supply, but available, of .32 S&W long though.

She likes it. That's all that matters.

I order mine online. You will find with the .327 that the gun will shoot the S&W longs lots better. The shorts seem to foul up the cylinder and makes it hard to get the empty shells out. For carry ammo I use the .327. When I take it for a test drive I use the 32 longs.

Default thanks....

....for the feedback. Probably will stick to the .32 longs until she gets more comfortable with the gun. Will try to upgrade to a .38 pistol someday. If for no other reason than ammo availability.
