I too avoid "likely" areas whenever possible. If not possible, I carry a 1911 .45 acp loaded with 230 gr. hardball in a shoulder holster ( its all I ever shoot in it and that 1911 is by far the handgun I am most proficiant with ). In "unlikely" areas, which is 99.8% of the time, I carry a P11 or Ruger Ec9s loaded with 9mm Federal 124 gr HST. If the P11 or Ec9s is too conspicuos or inconvenient, I carry the P32 with Fiocchi 73 gr fmj. In other words, I carry the p32 just about all the time.Old guy, don't go to "iffy" areas, P32 works fine. If I do, Kahr CM9 goes in my pocket.
Yep due to recent medical problems cant carry anything else. Took it to range put all shots into a 2" circle so happy.Does anyone carry their P32 as their primary or only carry pistol? Can it be effective in that role? It’s not very powerful but very small and portable.
Shoot it a lot better than a same sized .380. I think anything less than a .45 is too small, but I'm not willing to carry around a 2.5 lb pistol in my old age.YMMV, but curious too, why ya'll use the P32, when the .380 is negligibly larger, but provides substantially more power (relatively speaking, of course!)?
Strictly speaking of pocketable pistols, of all I've owned or sampled, the P32 has yielded the best results, for me. But expanding on that, it's about having confidence and competence with the weapon overall. Of course there are larger guns that are better shooters in my stable but I'm speaking solely about a pocketable pistol.YMMV, but curious too, why ya'll use the P32, when the .380 is negligibly larger, but provides substantially more power (relatively speaking, of course!)?
THIS.No, and I wouldn't even consider it when I can carry a more powerful .380 in a comparable sized package.
