If you only want the pistol as a carry gun, you could pick up one of the FEG AP7 ( Walther PP copies) from J&G Sales. I have one ( as well as 2 SMC-22's, 2 PA-63's, .380 & 9x18, smc-380 and PMK-380) . They are all in the $200-$300 range and are solid guns, good shooters. J&G sales has some good condition 32 ACP models in stock. IF I were going to carry this pistol, I'd stagger load the magazine with Buffalo Bore FNHC and Fiocchi APHP hollow points. That gives a lot of penetration and high energy hollow points in one fast burst. Then I'd skeedaddle !

Brent: Welcome to the forum. I appreciate you adding your knowledge and opinions for all here. However, you may wish to consider starting a new thread for some of this since a few of the ones you are answering haven't seen a post in 20 months or so.

Hello. Your idea about the staggered load may give rise to a problem that is sort of unique to .32 acp semiauto pistols:

Because the .32 auto cases have a semi rim, stacking rounds of different overall length in a magazine can lead to rimlock. That is to say, the rim of a round in the magazine gets caught behind the rim of the case directly beneath it. Hence that upper round won't go forward and feed into the chamber.

Yes, I've tried this to see what would happen and my test confirmed that rimlock CAN occur.
