    Was it Psalms23dad that was running a 6-shot J .32 awhile back?

    Never thought I'd write this, but for close work, or head shots at reasonable ranges, I see nothing wrong with six stout .32 loads.

    Think of it as a long range Seecamp that you can shoot from inside a pocket.

    Id opt for a modern revolver chambered in 327 Mag. It allows you to shoot 32 H&R Mag, 32 Long, and 32 S&W. 327 and 32 H&R Magnums are no slouches.

    You will see alot of Youtube Operators trying to cling to Cooper's coattails by bemoaning anything less than a 9mm. They don't know what they don't know. For the application at hand as I see it...which is elevator distance combat, a 32 can do well. It is only a bit smaller than a full .355 (9mm, 38 special, 380, etc.). Again...not optimal, but definitely workable.

    YES, to all of that.

    The only thing I would add is that I use laser boot grips on my back-up Model 37.

    Another sleeper in this category is the S&W 33 in 38 S&W. I was gifted one and gave it a makeover. The 125gr Buffalo Bore at 1000 FPS brings it into the modern era.

    The S&W 432. Made briefly in the early 2000's. I know where there's one for sale right now if you're interested.

    That one deserves to be published twice. Some subtle stuff going on there--the grips, the Airweight cylinder latch, the beautifully reshaped trigger, the finish, the balanced hammer bob. Very nice indeed. And I bet the action is outstanding.

    I remember reading that several times.
