Got A .32 Gun In My Pocket For Fun

Turns out I did have one picture in my Iphone. Not great but It'll do for now.

2010 BAG Day Purchase. I managed to actually pick it up last night, so timing was perfect.
By the way, this thing has a horrid trigger pull. Any suggestions on which size CTC grips to buy?

Very Nice.

I've looked into the .327 offerings but haven't been able to afford anything.

That looks sweet and I wouldn't have a problem carrying it or having it for my wife to carry.

Congrats

Very cool indeed. I prefer the same gun, but in .38 Sp +P m'self, I'd rather have a bigger bore and one less pill in the wheel, but its 6 to one half-a-dozen to another, as they say!

How easy is it to find ammo for? I think I saw some .32 H&R Mag brass in the range bin ONCE, and I don't think I've ever seen a live one.

That being said, if .327 Federal Mag picks up, I suspect .32 H&R practice mag will become more common.

Oh, FYI, Tam has the same gun, and she cured the trigger problem by dry-firing it a jillion times.

Weer'd - .32 H&R Mag is not particularly easy to find, but it's not totally unobtainable either. I know Georgia-Arms sells it.

The nice thing is you can also shoot .32 S&W Long & .32 S&W out of it. The ammo in the 2nd picture is actually 85. grain .32 S&W Long JHP's loaded by Georgia-Arms.

Congrats on the new blaster! And ditto what Weer'd said about dry fire. They slick up pretty nicely.

i found a few pieces of 327 at the range a while back, and some 32 mag as well I think. doubt it totaled half a box.

Nice score!

Cool gun! I'd be interested in a .32 blaster such as yours one day; will you do a range report when you have time?

Obviously not the .327 magnum, but aren't there other .32 cartridges that will fire in it? Versatility is a fine quality, and that piece would make an excellent river/anti-snake weapon.

Ctone - I'll do a range report as soon as I can. It's not looking like I'll make it this coming weekend. Too many other things going on.

And yes, you can shoot H&R Mag, .32 S&W, .32 S&W Long, and even .32 ACP in a pinch out of this gun (though I wouldn't advise shooting the ACP)

In fact, all I have for it right now is .32 S&W Long.

I'm still amazed that I can throw this thing in a pocket (even without a holster) and forget it's there.
