    I am just on a high from old fashioned miltary styled pistol, and the Skorpion is quite Bada**.

    It would be a kick out at the range.

    What do you think about it?

    That's just my sweet bit of the day.

    Shoots a .32 acp for those who don't know

    There might be a 380 version coming in soon, too. :)

    Can't really see the point in a huge, semiauto 32ACP pistol that was originally a full auto.

    I don't really want one. But I sort of want one, for all the same reasons.

    I can see the point (kind of) in a big, heavy .32 Auto--that being controllable full auto fire.
    I can't really see the point in a semi auto .32 Auto.
    Might be kind of fun if you've already bought every useful gun on the planet.

    I think they are going to introduce a .380 and a 9mm version, and all three would make a really fun SBR.

    But it's just not for me.

    Arround here, 32ACP and .380 ammo is very hard to find, and expensive as all hell. But yeah.....I'd love one!:D

    I just sent a new CZechPoint-USA vz61 brochure to a guy who is interested in buying one.

    I've encountered the full auto versions while overseas, but never fired one.

    They do make them in 9mm. A caliber more suitable for defense in my book.

    However, if you watch Body Of Lies, you will get the SKORPION itch!

    Convert it to .22LR and make it a reliable feed/extrator with that round, make it full auto, and slap the wire stock back on it to make it an SBR. THEN I'll want it.

    I have one. Fun little plinker, unfortunately I haven't seen any .32 acp around here for quite awhile.

    Not really interested for most of the reasons previously mentioned. If you want one just to have it I understand but it's pretty impractical from any other standpoint. .32 ACP is what, like $18 a box now? For that you can shoot .45 or almost twice as much 9mm...in something you can actually carry. If it was full auto and .32 was plentiful and cheap, yeah that might be fun.

    I don't really care if it's impracticle or not. Sports cars aren't practicle, but yet they sell.

    You asked what we thought and I answered. Sorry, I didn't understand you were just looking for validation.

    Funny... I was just watching Body of Lies with Leonardo DiCaprio. He uses one in the early scenes of the movie and I couldn't help but wonder why he would choose to go into battle with a .32 ACP. Maybe it's just me though...

    I have many guns I don't need and don't really serve a specific purpose. That being said I fondled one of these doodads at the local gunshop. Dealer knows my tastes and that I'll buy darn near anything if it will pop a primer and make lead come out of the barrel (especially martial arms). I couldn't get it though I have multiple guns in .32 and they are all more uselful than this tailless scorpion.

    No harm, no foul. I did say it would be fun if full auto and if ammo were cheap and plentiful. Fun in a "sports car" kinda way.:D

    Yeah... I think its neat but 32acp is a deal breaker... If it was in 7.62 torkarev or heck even 9mm I would be more likely to get one. I saw one at a show this weekend, it caught my eye, I like commie guns. But there are too many others higher up on my list.
