Hi guys, I thought I'd get some opinions on the usefullness of the .32 Auto cartridge for self-defense purposes. I own a Beretta 3032 Tomcat, which is a small, lightweight, "pocket pistol" in the .32 auto caliber. I have it loaded with hollow point ammunition. It's a very nice little pistol. I love it. I have heard many say that this caliber is not sufficient for self-defense, because it lacks any stopping power. But come on, would they want to get shot by it? I know I wouldn't. I also own some other weapons, including a .45 auto, which is very well known for its stopping power. I have personally never been in a gunfight nor have I witnessed any real gunfights. I hallucinate that the people who claim the .32 is insufficient are referring to extreme circumstances. For instance, a drug crazed meth head is pretty often immune to pain. But in my opinion, any bullet is deadly because anything that penetrates the human body is bound to hit a vital organ. And we all know what happens from there. This has been a big debate. What do you all think?
