I shot a couple .32s today; my $40 Iver Johnson Safety Hammer in .32 Smith and Wesson and a Belgian made Melior pistol in .32acp. Both guns date approx 1920. Ammo was Remington .32 SW 88gr RNL in the Iver. Typically good for about 600fps in a 3" revolver like this. The Winchester 60gr Silvertip fed the Melior, these run about 900fps in 3.5" barrels like the Melior's. I shot the old top-break in both DA and SA modes; it worked fine. A few times I had brass under the automatic extractor, had to dig them out until I learned to open the gun upside down. It shoots to its sights, I was happy to see, and the boolits successfully penetrated the paper target nose-first. Not much in the way of power here, but a gun almost exactly like this managed to scramble President McKinley's giblets enough to kill him, so it gets due respect. It handled the Alien pretty well with nice centered head shots and COM out to 45ft. Recoil was soft, even in this tiny revolver, but plenty dirty with lead dust all over both my hands after 25rnds. No signs of shaving boolits either.
