    I have inherited a 32 revolver from my mother-in-law after she died. I don't see ammo for this caliber very often, or at least not at Wal-Mart. A friend gave me a box of 32 auto ammo. Does anyone know if I am able to shoot these in the revolver?

    Thanks for the help.:ou1

    32 Auto can't be shot in it. You'll need to figure out what version of .32 it is. Could be .32 S&W, .32 S&W Long, .32 H&R Mag. What brand/model is it?

    I'm interested to know what kind of pistol it is. I'm going to guess it is chambered for 32 S&W Long which is one of my favorite rounds to shoot. You can still get it loaded from places like Georgia Arms.

    Since the .32ACP is a semi-rimmed cartridge it can be loaded and fired in a gun chambered for the .32L cartridge; however, I do not recommend you try this, as it could very well be unhealthy!!!
