First off let me say I am not trying to make a .32 acp gun look as good carry gun. What I am saying is that the Buffalo Bore .32 +p at 1150 fps with 220 ft/pds is basically equivalent to a .380 type pistol. Not sure if I would want to shoot them through say a P32, but my new twin Beretta 81's should handle it fine. Haven't shot them yet (just acquired and it's too damn hot), but they cycle fine either using the slide stop or racking it back through a series of rounds. Almost qualify as decent carry guns with this ammo.
