I like 9`s & 45`s but I like shooting the small guns too. Any other 380/32 fans out there?

Used to have a Model 90 Beretta - It was .32 and looked like a PPK - It was a sweet gun - It belonged to my ex-wife's family - her father has turned the DA/SA into only SA, unfortunately.

Anyway, I had to give it back because of the divorce :(

But, I have kewl guns now that I am remarried - So, I can't complain.

Yup, I love the small calibers. I have had a beautiful vintage little Beretta 418 .25 auto (too small?) for many years and took it along on many remote camping/fishing trips (it was about all I had for a pistol).

I even pulled it it for self defense once against a good size angry rattle-snake. I didn't have to shoot though, as it ended in a stand-off, and I was able to back (run) away- and the snake went on it's own way.

More recently, I bought a NIB Bersa model 86- (1996 vintage, designated as an "undercover" model- all steel & heavy, Houge type wrap-around grips) .380 auto-pistol that I really like and value.

Even more recently, I purchased (currently on lay-by) a S&W 432 PD Centennial model (hammerless) Airweight, snubnose revolver in .32 cal. H&R Magnum. This, (other than my Beretta .25 auto) is the only handgun I (will) posess that is really, compact, concealable, and light. And this one arguably has some appreciable amount of "stopping" power, with the right load.

Getting a little "older" and having a sometimes C-6 issue (neck); I really do appreciate the "smaller "calibers (less recoil). Besides, they're "fun' ...too.

Just don't wanna shoot that Mag Fo'ty Fo' ...no Mo'. (ouch)

Yep! I've got a BDA in nickel and walnut, an 84FS and a Tom Cat in INOX. Each weapon serves a specific purpose and I love them all.

I only have two small cal. autos right know. both are Bulgarian made circle 10 Makarov PM's. one is the stock 9X18 Makarov cal. and the other is soon to be a .380ACP. ammo is getting hard to get for all cal. around here but the Makarov ammo is the hardest, so i am converting one to .380ACP for a plinking practice gun and using the other as my carry gun loaded with 9X18 Mak ammo.

If I had to shoot anything it would be the 22LR. I have the most fun with them. At the reange I shoot the big stuff for 15 mins then 22's for the next 45min to 2 hours. Most fun to shoot out side

I am a big guy but I love the mystic of pocket pistols. I own 4 9x18 Makarovs, a .380 Sig P230, a .380 Bersa Thunder, a 32acp Taurus PT 57,a 32acp Walther PP, a 32acp Kel-Tec, and a 22 Short Beretta M950. Regards, Richard :-D

This is the rarely seen Taurus PT 57, there are less than 10 in the USA:

Small calibers........I guess that would be anything less than my 45acp's. Lets see........I have a Kel-Tec P11 in 9mm and a Ruger SP-101 2" barrel thats hammerless in .357mag that are used as BUG's. I also carry a Taurus PT-145 in 45acp as a BUG. Ooops that's not a smaller caliber now is it???
