    Keep me posted. I have a few cases of 32 S&W Long I got in a trade. Going to see what it can do. Pretty curious at how much of a change it is from the Long to the H&R. Manuals are only so good, but I'm looking for real world data.

    I bought a S&W stainless 4inch for my son when he was 7 because I thought he was too small to keep shooting my 38. He started with a .22 S&W Kit gun. Now at 25 he is still shooting the 32H&R. My only mistake was I was handloading hotter rounds in the 32 than he was shooting in the 38. Well, maybe I made two mistakes because he kept outshooting me using it. It is bad to have a kid do that to you too soon. For his 24th birthday I bought him an XD45 'cuse he didn't want to give mine back and I still wanted it real bad. Anyone who badmouths a 32H&R just is plain ignorant or worse.

    I wish I would have bought a single six with the birds head grip in 32 H&R while they were making them a couple years ago. A very cool little gun waiting for a nice crossdraw rig for jackrabbits and tin cans.

    If anyone happens to see one for sale...

    Exactly the reason I bought my single six in birdshead. Thought is was cool looking and it does the job on tin cans and a coyote I happened upon.
    Sorry not for sale.

    I had a S&W M631 4" that I just couldn't cozy up to. I ended up selling it to Terry Murbach for his wife. Terry and his wife love the 32 Mag and they have put a gazillion rounds through the one I owned. Me, I like my S&W 60-10 much better. Regards, Richard

    That is a sweet looking little revolver. If only S&W would chamber that in .327 Federal. A nice self defense and camp gun all rolled into one.

    I'm getting a "no longer made anymore" four inch Ruger SP101 and getting that barrel put on my .327 Federal.

    If I were shopping for a .32, I'd sure go for the .327. What is the point in buying a .32 H&R Mag when the .327 is available?

    I'm going to swap out the 4 inch barrel to my .327 and put the 3" barrel on my .32. This is also a discontinued model, which will gain value over time.
