I'm beginning to think my 32 maggie is the funnest gun I've ever owned, the little round continues to amaze me & I've pounded a lot rounds down the barrel now. Took it for another stroll tonight, hoping to bump into a badger, I saw one in the headlights night before last but the only weapon I had was a 5.7 Hemi :cry:
I got another nice photo of a beaver pond, then lit up a couple of ground squirrels. Squirrel #1 ran out into the meadow & I told Callshot all I could see was his eyeball at 13 yds, he should have kept an "eye out" for me, thats right where the little lead pill smacked him, lucky shot but it still did quite a number on his noggin :D #2 squirrel was messing around an old wood pile & got lead poison for his efforts. The 100 gr cast SWC & 3 grs of WST is deadly accurate & hits extremly hard for such a mild recoiling little death ray.

Can you spot the small muley buck in this photo?

A cow moose is probably the most ugly animal in north america, this one is no exception, her head was so long she could eat grass & never bend her neck :wink: She was about 200 yds away, I zoomed her in, still forgot my tripod.

Fun night, no badger but its only a matter of time, one of them will give up before I do :lol:

It was a fun stroll. Sorry about bouncing your head off the ceiling of my blazer. I told that squirrel to keep an eye out for you.

Yep, that mulie just thinks he's hidden.
I went to load up some of those death ray 32's ya sent, and found I didn't have any empty brass. I guess it's time for me to go shooting!!!
I noticed you are being safe by handling those pests with gloves,,,,! Good shootin there!

You know Dick, the first thing I noticed in these pictures was my cross draw holster on your hip :) You're very lucky that one made it to NM, I almost kept it here :) Glad to see you are out shooting the little boogers again!!

Poor Mike Barranti.....I chewed on him to absolutely no end today since that particular holster was MY idea and I dont even have one yet!!! Worse, Dick is out hammering meat all over the place with MY holster....

Here are some of my Custom Single Sixes..A 327 Federal by Harton, a 32 Mag by Harton, Nimrodito the 22/22mag by Harton, and my 5.5 inch 32 Mag Bisley by Stroh.....

Folks, I've shot Fermins 327 & its beyond nice! :lol: Truly a world class gun. Fermin, I absolutely love this holster you designed & I'm packing it almost daily when I'm on squirrel safari, you really need to get up here & get in on some of this shooting.
Eliminated a big pain in the neck for a rancher yesterday with my 32, no it wasn't a wolf but it had been very destructive......not any more! :wink:

No wonder my 32 maggie has been knocking the whiskers off those ground squirrels, I ran that load through the clock yesterday (100 gr cast & 3 grs WST) & it was running 950 fps! Thats a fast little rascal for only 3 grs of powder, I can have a lot of fun out of 2,500 rounds with one can of powder :lol: The squirrels are pretty much gone for year, now its back to badgers :twisted: This green quakie is almost exactly 6" in diameter, the little 100 gr 32 punched clear through, try that with a jacketed slug :wink: Thats the exit hole out the back of the quakie.

The .32 H&R Magnum is quite a little round. I currently have three .32 H&R revolvers. I have an S&W 631 (4"), a S&W 16-4 (6") and a Ruger SP101 (4"). They all shoot at match pistol levels with my home cast 100 gr Keith bullets (Group Buy mould from Cast Boolits) at various velocity levels. It is really a very versatile round. I use, mainly, .32 S&W Long brass with appropriate loads.

It is a terrific small game round.
