  1. I came here to look at data for the .32 acp. Was very impressed with the site overall. The chart link for the .32 muzzle energy graph seems to point to data other than th e.32 ACP.

  2. Thanks, Chris – glad you like the site. Looking over the graph on the .32ACP, and comparing that to even the graph posted recently on this blog: I don’t see any problem with it. Could you provide more info – if there’s a glitch, we certainly want to get it fixed!

    Thanks again –

  3. I did a lot of research before deciding on .32 Auto for carry, the NAA Guardian 32. I can’t understand the apparent preference for .380 in a pocket size gun. The old “bigger is better” syndrome? I guess some guys are just too macho to admit they don’t like getting a blue hand from a small .380. The .32 Auto loses very little in terminal ballistics, in exchange for a lot less felt recoil and better recovery. .380 is good in PPK size pistols or larger, but too much for a pocket carry.
