i had an AMT backup

in .32,no safety just a long trigger pull,good gun,but if i pulled slowly the trigger would stack and it was a bitch to shoot,had to pull the trigger quickly.But it never misfired,i sold it,wish i didn't.

i tried being reasonable,i didn't like it, NRA LIFE MEMBER,USMC VETERAN

Try the NAA

Check out the little .32 ACP from North American Arms. Not inexpensive, but excellent quality.

The replacement for the Tomcat 32 is the Ruger LCP 380.

Bob, that "pony" i was talking about the little 32 1911 copy.. first off.. guess i could check this quick with the daughters high speed, but lazy.. That is the right name is it not.. And secondly have you ever fired one.. Ive never had a chance to, but always liked the little things..

Your thoughts on this would be appreciated..

You have me confused. The Colt "Pony" was in .380 ACP, not .32 ACP, and was double action only (DAO), but looked rather similar to the "Mustang", which was a modification of the .380 Government Model). Stevehh said that he wanted something in .32 ACP, since he has so much .32 ACP ammo. This comment would also apply to dockit's recommendation of the Ruger LCP, which is also in .380 ACP.

Personally, I'd rather have a gun in .380 ACP than in .32 ACP, for cartridge effectiveness.

I suggested that Stevehh look at the NAA weapon because of its quality. Seecamp still offers a .32 ACP, but it's enormously expensive (at least to me), and their production is backed up. Keltec has a .32 ACP, but I'm not particularly enamored of them. I'm not trying to denigrate their quality or cost effectiveness; I just don't care for them.

The reason i asked last night was it didn't seem right.. Were down house and dog sitting, and i don't have my reference books with me, and this will teach me to be lazy and not look it up as stated..

it was the Mustang i was thinking of.. not the pony... and of course in 9 kurtz.. again ..sheesh..

I never saw the value in the seecamp... I know they have an almost cult following, and have always thought it had something to do with the price.. if i had 5k to put in a Korth i'd be singing thier praises instead of S&W... Anyway thanks for the help i knew you would have that and the pony thing (obviously) didn't sound right

for the wife

i have to agree....the Ruger is cheap ,but well made.I've heard simuler about the Kel-tec, but the newer ones....they had some kind of recall a few years ago.But if you can get a good used NAA .32....go for it, I may get one for my daughter. For the money it is top notch craftmanship.Now if money is not the problem Get A Sig!!!!!!!
