      Can they even make a reliable .32 acp doublestack? The cartridge is semi rimmed so it would be a pain to get it to feed well.

        >semi rimmed is a pain
        The point john browning invented the semi rim is you get a large enough rim to headspace, but small enough to not interrupt feeding

      There is no gun better suited to coat pocket carry than a snubnose revolver. You can hold, point, and fire without ever moving your hand from a breast pocket, and without making a movement signalling your intent. That is why revolvers will never go away.

      Revolvers will be relevant forever for that reason alone.

          When I go to the city I have a gun in my hoody pocket and any time a bum approaches me I have it pointed at him through the pocket. Bums have a habit of getting way too fricking close and I don't think I could draw in time from a holster if one produced a knife or some other weapon.

          So I have the anti bum gun pointed at them through the pocket ready to go if they frick around.

        This. I have tried carrying every type of gun in just about every location of my body, using just about every type of holster. So far nothing beats a Ruger LCR in a pocket holster in my right-hand pants pocket. It's so light and inconspicuous that I often forget I am carrying. It's the only setup that I will carry 100% of the time. Other guns and holsters I will sometimes be like "Frick it, not today." The best CC gun is always the one that you will carry every time you leave the house, not the 4.5" pistol with weapon light and red dot in a appendix holster that you leave home because you are wearing athletic shorts, or just don't feel like dealing with it that day.

          revolvers are also great on the hip. For cc sized guns, the grips usually conceal better and are much easier to draw IMHO. Another benefit is they can do contact shots without going out of battery.

              Not reliably - the barrel won't move back but unless the contact is exactly at 90 degrees, and barely touching then the slide probably will.

              Actually more likely than the "I'm gonna snipe you from 100 feet away with muh red dot" meme fantasy. Physical assaults happen fast and furious, and often more than one attacker. Nice to have the option of just pressing that muzzle into bodies and start pulling the trigger, even if they are wailing on you.

                Yeah dude, no-one has ever pressed a gun up against someone else and pulled the trigger. Just imagine what would have to happen for that to occur. Two people would need to get into a confrontation, it would have to develop into a grapple, and one of them would have to pull a gun and fire it.

                My favorite meme is when people say they've shot deer. You mean to tell me the deer, running around in the woods, just stands still, and you just happen to be there when they stand still, and you just happen to have a gun, and it just happens to be loaded, and you...what...point it at the deer and pull the trigger? And despite this being the woods the bullet doesn't hit a branch?

                I can already hear the elaborate excuses they'll come up with to explain the gaping holes in their story; "the deer didn't know I was there so he didn't run!", oh sure, a wild animal evolved over millions of years to spot danger didn't know you were there? Sure thing bud, nice story. "there wasn't a tree in the way!" IN THE WOODS? Do these people even knows what woods are? They're saying they shot a deer in the woods but there's no trees between them and the deer?

                I was kind of with you on the contact shot argument but you lost me on the handgun hunting thing. I don't personally approve of it outside of magnum calibers but it's entirely possible to line up a shot with something even as small as a .22. Given you know, people hunt small game without hitting trees.

                Tbh I think people are just making up excuses because they know they'll limpwrist or frick something up in a panic which is far more likely than whatever judo gunkata thing they imagine. But at the same time you can also lock up a revolver by not letting it reset all the way before pulling the next shot so it's kind of a matter of getting used to your gun instead of just never using it and depending on whatever mechanical system you think will help you.

                I derped and missed the point of what you said to the point it was the opposite. I'm agnostic as to the validity of the contact shot being a deciding factor if you carry something or not. I'm sure someone has done the math about how many actually wins up in close grappling but tbh I imagine that's not that common and probably like on the teir of 'is 5 shots enough' and lower than 'is a .38 load from a snubnose that I can get realistic followup shots with a good defensive load'

                Very hard to legally justify shots at 50 meters and its more likely I'd be shooting at some incel with an AR or something. That's a fun dick waving range but not really practical, 25m in is more realistic. Inb4 that one edge case.

                This is 1,000% fuddlore, more than any other gun myth. Distance can be a factor, but if the situation would cause a reasonable person to fear for their life, then it’s justified.
                >Would a reasonable person fear for their life if someone was aiming a gun at them from 50m?
                Absolutely
                Sure if they only have a melee weapon, then no, but a firearm undoubtedly.

                IIRC in Ayoob’s book “deadly force” there was a case of a guy getting shot at by a handgun. He tried to runaway, but the guy kept shooting, so he turned around and shot the guy from 50yrds and killed him. At the trial he argued if he was able to hit the guy from 50 yards with a handgun, a reasonable person would conclude the assailant had a significant chance of hitting him at that range and he was acquitted.

                Elisha Dicken mall shooting. That was 40 yards. Shooting at 20+ yards isn’t that unlikely (if you are already in a shooting) and anything 10-15+ yards greatly benefits from a red dot. For contact shots you can mitigate that completely by positioning your body and/or moving your arm back. The exception is if you got taken down and they are on top of you. I can fix issues with contact shots in the moment. I can’t make tiny sights more useful to shoot farther.
                >just git gud
                I agree but you’ll always shoot a micro 9 with a red dot better than a snubbie at distance. Both are training problems but one is far far easier to train for and is solved with common sense. Far pistol shots are always challenging.

            Totally. I have a pocket holster for my LCR, as well as a IWB leather holster, depending on what I am wearing and how I'm feeling that day. Like you said, contact shots are a thing, as well as a bad round you can just pull the trigger again for the next cartridge. In a semi you'd have to rack that dud round out of the chamber.

        Revolvers are simply the best small carry gun. Any autoloader that has a small grip is extremely prone to malfunctions. I have a g42 that shoots reliably until you fudge the grip a bit. Works great on the range but imagine drawing that thing in a life or death scenario and you screw up your grip. After carrying pistols for about 15yrs, I'm of the mind that a semi auto needs to have a grip no smaller than say a g43x, and realistically a g19 is much, much better. Revolvers and double stack Glocks seems to be the winning combo. I'm so excited for the .32 j frame. I strongly considered tracking down one of the discontinued models but this is so much better. I can't wait to get my hands on one.

      That's how it was originally designed to operate though anon.
      No extractor to break means in theory it should be more reliable.
      I don't have a tomcat but I've got a 950bs in 25acp which is essentially the same design, it's never failed to extract a spent case once.
      If you need to remove a live round the barrel tips up and you simply dump it out.
      If the gun is filthy because you've fired 2000 rounds through it without cleaning it like a barbarian and the round doesn't dump out, you use a fingernail.

          The problem is the aluminum case itself, you get bimetallic corrosion when it's in contact with the chamber, which isn't a problem for range ammo, but can easily become an issue on a carry gun.

      Germany evaluated both .32 and .380 as service cartridge and the .32 passed but the .380 failed. .32 ACP (in 7.65 Browning guise) was the most issued pistol by the germans in both world wars. It'll do. Just avoid loads with hollow points or flat nosed bullets, .32 ACP is particular about the cartridge OAL. The S&B load is particularly good, it's designed for their old submachinegun and is about 100fps hotter than other loads, additionally it uses a bullet that tumbles early and often on impact.

    Is it finally time for the .32 H&R Renaissance

      I hope so. Seems like word of mouth has spread enough about .32 H&R that Smith has taken notice. Hopefully these sell well. I don't normally buy brand new handguns, but I might have to put an order in for one of these.

        32 mag should by all rights be the 380 of revolvers. flat nose would be almost perfect for a light weight

        Germany evaluated both .32 and .380 as service cartridge and the .32 passed but the .380 failed. .32 ACP (in 7.65 Browning guise) was the most issued pistol by the germans in both world wars. It'll do. Just avoid loads with hollow points or flat nosed bullets, .32 ACP is particular about the cartridge OAL. The S&B load is particularly good, it's designed for their old submachinegun and is about 100fps hotter than other loads, additionally it uses a bullet that tumbles early and often on impact.

        How could 380 fail but 32 pass? Was reliability and follow up a criteria?
        It looks like SB preforms about the same as Fiocchi
        Maybe Europe using it as a service caliber is why euro 32 is superior

          Reliability and penetration. The 380 has a similar problem as the 45 acp, it's very short relative to its diameter so it has a tendency to hang up while making the turn out of the magazine to the chamber. The 32 acp, while the same overall length, is a narrower cartridge and doesn't have that trouble. The smaller diameter of the 32 acp bullet also improves penetration.
          >Maybe Europe using it as a service caliber is why euro 32 is superior
          That's my theory, they had a reason to take it seriously whereas in the US it was always kind of a toy cartridge.

          Mutts shot at cows until they died, and then used ballistic pendulums to measure ft lbs energy
          Euros used penetration tests

          Turns out now after FBI testing the euros were right all along

            The pendulum test actually sounds smart. Just because something energy doesn’t leave a permanent wound, doesn’t mean it has zero effect on the target during a span of a firefight.
            We need a YouTuber to start doing pendulum tests with jelly.

              Expended energy means nothing when tissue is elastic and stretches back.

              You can stretch a rubber band thousands of times within the leastic limit and it will return to normal with no problem.

                if someone punches you in the chest, it probably won’t leave any permanent tissue damage, but it’ll certainly effect your ability to shoot a gun or fight for the next few moments while the guy who shot you keeps shooting you.

          European 7.65 Browning is slightly hotter than US .32ACP; this stuff in FMJ is probably the best choice to get adequate penetration.

    Is Taurus good now?

    My dream ideal carry revolver is the Ruger SP101 in .327 with the Gemini treatment. The Taurus 327 Defender T.O.R.O is basically the same thing (minus the porting but plus optics) at a fraction of the price.

      by they logic you might as well use .22lr round nose.

        *Click* and since it’s a semi you now have to rack
        Also the energy is basically half of hot 32 so not as certain you’ll smash through the sternum

          and .22lr reliability has come a long way. I got a ruger mk IV last year and have put half a brick of basic federal through it and only had 1 dud round and one stove pipe.
          Granted carry guns might not be so reliable, but again we’re mostly talking about revolvers.

            So, two failures in two or three hundred rounds? That's not good. A sane man would not trust his life to those odds.

    Oh, good. A relative of mine was talking about .327 and I thought he was just fricking up .357. I didn't say anything about it and I'm glad I didn't. Then later I looked it up and thought maybe I had just somehow missed the existence of a round and thought I was moronic. But I'm glad to see it was just some obscure round that most people never heard of until this year.

    I'm still not sure if my relative just fricked up .357.

      327 is relatively obscure, but any revolver guy would be aware of it. It's a niche round.

    I dream of a .30SC that stops being marketed as a pocket rocket round and starts having unique bullet designs to achieve superior penetration and expansion to .32ACP

    What's the advantage of .32 vs .380 for a pocket pistol? Does the .32 have significantly less recoil?

    • 1 month ago

      Yes. Also usually 1 or 2 more cartridges for the same size gun, as well as being a bit more reliable assuming your ammunition actually follows the SAAMI standard (at least one commercial loading, the Winchester Silver Tip, does not, and is notorious for causing malfunctions in many 32 ACP pistols).

        It's also the answer to a question nobody asked. Had they simply delivered a rimless 32 acp with a standard load of 75gr @ 1100 fps then that would have been absolutely fantastic. But that "justasgoodas9mm" excrescence is and always was a non-starter.

    I would love to see the .32 family of cartridges see a resurgence in popularity. I've been rooting for the .32 ever since acquiring a p32 and coming to the realization that small guns are better off with small calibers.
