Ruger LCR 327 Federal
Several 32 Caliber options in this fine revolver
Somebody made me aware of that possibility some time back but this gun is still all original parts and I am reluctant to change that. I wouldn't be using that gun for anything as it is one I inherited from my grandfather about 20 years ago and this gun, while slimmer, is both taller and longer than my Astra .380. And, being a prisoner in the Land of Obama (Lincoln), I refuse to pay their exorbitant fees for a CCW.
S&W 632-2 Pro Series 327 Federal mag.
Anything in .32.....And .22....
I am fond of Smith J-Frame revolvers in .22LR and 32 S&W Long. My favorites are probably two snubnose guns: the 43C in 22 and the 30-1 in 32.
Got one. It’s my wife’s fave.
I do not have a particular favorite but I have enjoyed shooting my 32 caliber and 25 caliber handguns. I have guns in 32 S&W, 32 S&WL, 32 H&R Mag, 327 Fed Mag, 32 ACP and 25 ACP.
The 32 S&W and 25 ACP see the least use but I enjoy shooting the others as frequently as I can.
If I had to pick a favorite, my grandfather carried a Colt 1908 in France during the Great War. So, besides his pistol, I like the Colt 1903 that I have.
Walther PP in 7.65. A pleasure to shoot.
Well...in center-fire it'd be a Single Six chambered for .32 H&R....accurate, with plenty of punch with hand cast 100 gr LSWC's. It'll do for coons in the horse feed, stray opossums by the chicken koop...you get the idea...and fun to carry with its light weight.
For .22's I'll go with a S&W Model 18...as accurate as my M41 Smith, but with weight that makes practice perfect for the M19 or M66 I normally carry.
Here are the obligatory pics...the first has both of my SS's...I like the 5-1/2" bbl'd one better for its adj. sights. The 2nd pic is the M18...almost new condition when I bought it...and superbly accurate.
Best Regards, Rod
Great handgun, AWESOME grips!
My favorite a 22lr. is a great little Ruger MKI 6 6/7” Heavy Tapered Target Model. I bought it about 3 years ago as new in the box which also was in new condition. It just balances great in the hand. First when you pick one up it feels a little awkward and lopsided but then you hold it by the grip and bring the sights up and inline with your eyes it is like the Wizard of Oz going from black and white to color. I really don’t miss having the bolt hold open on the side as the safety handles that just fine.
Mine would have to be my Heritage with the .22Mag cylinder.
I go through way to many rounds with it, just a pleasure to shoot.
I'm also a fan of my Mk2 Ruger HB adj sight SS pistol.
Ruger Standard MK2 - .22LR
CZ-70 - .32 ACP
Just like shooting them, easy to shoot - good trigger practice. I can't really shoot a 9mm or .38 Special as quickly and accurately as either of the small calibers.
Hands down, my favorite small caliber handgun involves the .22 rimfire caliber Ruger Mark pistols. During "normal" business hours, ammunition is plentiful with no worries concerning the gathering of components that are unobtanium during times like these:
It would have to be my Colt Government .380. Just slightly larger than a Mustang. It has never skipped a beat.
My G.42 & S&W M&P BG 380's
favorite small caliber guns that are fun to shoot, that I currently own....
S&W Model 4006. I never carry it through
Of the under .380 calibers my favorite is the .327 Federal...as it will just about anything. Had a bunch of different ones but now only two left...
S&W Model 53 rebored/rechambered by Jack Huntington...
And a Freedom Arms 97 6.5"...along with a OM .30 Carbine...
Also love the KelTec .32s and have a Walther PP...
I have a real love for and collect small caliber pistols so it would be really hard to pick my overall favorite. If I had to it would be a Walther. Here are a couple of my favorite .25s. A first gen Model 8 circa 1920 and a US made TPH which is quite rare. The PPK is a .22 made in 1965
Great little shooter, accurate and next to no recoil
^^ Walther PPQ M 2 .22
I have a Seecamp in 25ACP. Love it. I also have a Colt in 25 ACP. It needs some work and the magazine spring is worn out. But looking at getting it worked on. Like you I am kinda fascinated by small guns in small calibers.
