I am seriously thinking about selling the Marlin. Its a great shooter, but I simply haven't shot it in years.

I also HAD an S&W M16. Why da heck did I let it get away?

The .32 H&R Mag is one of my favorite rounds. Lately ammo is hard to come by and expensive so I've been shooting 32 S&W Long and saving my .32 H&R Mag ammo for when I carry my SP 101. Here are mine. Top to bottom: A couple of NEF R73's; H&R 586; Colt Police and Ruger SP 101.

I admittedly have a 32 problem.
I think it is most akin to the hoarder raised during the depression, during times of "little".
32L was never common around here and in the early years of 32H&R they gave up production too soon.
They became unobtanium.
Then when Ruger came to the rescue and 327 came along supply was rebooted.
Trouble was I never got the memo varieties were available in reasonable quantities.
So, I still was compulsed to accumulate/hoard everyone I could lay hands on.
I'm sure them that inherit the stash will certainly wonder why.
Since you have too many 32's and I only have 2 you could just send me 1 or 2. Thank you very much!

Are you kidding????
Any "hoarder " worth his salt always WANTS/NEEDS/LUSTS AFTER more,,,,,,,, more, more more.
They all have a purpose, Yeah, I'm sure of it,,,, Yeah, a purpose.
A shrinking of the pile would certainly bring on a bout of anxiety.

Thanks everyone! Joe, I have no idea where to buy 32 shorts. Although I do have a few boxes. Haven't shot but a few of them. I reload most of my ammo.

I fit the Bisley grip frame to it. Was a little more work than I thought it might be. Grips are from Chigs Grips. I sent him frame to fit them.

There is a "Bisley-ized"
8 shot Blackhawk 327 on Gunstroker right now, item # 957090617, with the original parts included as a bonus. Bidding is way over minimum.

Dyed maple burl. Just different, sort of like camo as it sticks up out of my chest holster.

The .32 H&R is the reason I took the jump into reloading over 30 years ago. I simply couldn't afford to shoot unless I started reloading my own .32 ammo. I've never regretted that decision. I don't remember the last time I shot factory ammo in any of my guns in any caliber. In .32 Caliber I've loaded .32 Smith & Wesson Long, .32 H&R Mag, and .327 Federal, with bullets from 78 grain lead round nose up through 120 grain flat points. I love the versatility of the .32 H&R especially, and I'm beginning to appreciate the .327 with my own handloads.

Here’s everything but the Henry. Had these on my phone. Will have to take a snapshot of it View attachment 10967
Nice collection, but it would be more complete with a Ruger LCR in .32 mag.
