Quick question for you SP101 owners with that caliber. What is the recoil comparable to? I have a friend that is considering one for an elderly relative and was wondering if she could handle it.

I dont have a DA in it but have a single six in it. Next to no recoil. It is not much more than a .22 lr. It does have a sharp report.

Thanks, bill. I've read that it's a pretty mediocre round for self defense but it's gotta be better than nothing.

Hey, I have read it can be loaded up to be as effective as a .38 special.

There are some good 32 mag self defense loads out now. I hand load with Hornady 85 XTP to get as much disruption as I can on a target.
I have an old 4" 32 mag SP101 that is an easy companion. For a night stand gun I would recommend a flashlight first to ID your target in a darkened room and then apply rounds as necessary if it is not a family member.

The thing he/she may not be able to deal with is the DA trigger pull. And cocking the hammer for single action use on the new production guns can be difficult as well.


I’d suggest to your friend that he consider a S&W 380EZ for his elderly relative.

I have a CC permit and every type handgun and caliber. The one I pocket carry the most is a Sig 238. They are a .380. It`s small and light.
