A tale of 3 .32s
« on: July 02, 2019, 09:27:06 am »
I had never owned a .32 until a couple of years ago when I actually traded a guy a brick of .22s for a sad little 2" H&R that needed repair and TLC. Got the little beast running and still need to make a front sight for it. Then a a couple months ago wound up with an Iver Johnson top break that had been carried a lot but very well cared for. 3" barrel on this one. Last eek got an old Colt Pocket Positive with a 6" barrel and I can say it was definitely neglected! Broken grips held on with petrified electrical tape, heavily worn and had not been lubed or cleaned for decades. Took them to the range yesterday and used Fiocchi .32ACP ammo in them. All ran well and did keep all their rounds on a paper plate at 7 yards. I did not try the HR at 15 yards, but the other two were respectable, grouping well at 15. Due to the small grips and my large paws, it will take more practice to get really good. The Colt is gonna get stripped and scrubbed again.  It is easy to see why those little IJs sold so well, I was very impressed at what a fine little gun they are.
