.32 H&R Magnum: Is it Your Self-Defense Weapon?

The .32 H&R Magnum for Self-Defense

When peeing on yourself to turn a would-be rapist off just doesn't seem to be a good idea, your next best option might be the .32 H&R Magnum revolver.

If you're new to the self-defense world, you must worry about recoil, hitting your target, and coming out of a situation alive. Well, no worries, because a revolver with this hard-enough hitting round chamber, is capable of getting the job done.

It is also lightweight, thus the 32 h&r Magnum for personal defense couldn't be any more perfect for newbies or those who prefer it easy on the hands.

.32 H&R Magnum Pros

The ballistics of this handy little cartridge fall somewhere in between the .380 ACP and the .38 Special without the same amount of recoil. This is awesome for when you want to make sure your attacker isn't getting back up anytime soon.

Another appealing aspect of this little wheel gun is the fact, you can sometimes find them in six-shot, instead of five. This is great if you feel like you may need a little extra firepower to help put down your assailants.

And, let's face it when your life is on the line, you don't want him to get back up until he's at the hospital. The ammo and gun are both affordable.

So if money is an issue, as it is for most of us today, you won't have to chop off any of your appendages to pay for it. In return, this means you'll end up being more accurate because you can practice more often.

If you check out Gun Broker, you can see a lot of them going for under $200, going up from there. As far as the ammunition goes, you can find it starting at around 50 cents per round.

Well, it is an awesome price. It's good news indeed!

The bad? Well, there isn't a whole heck of a lot of these things floating around.

As of right now, not a lot of gun makers are currently pushing these out of the factory. Instead, you'll likely have to settle for a used one.

The only issue with buying used is most of them look like they fell out of the ugly tree. Or were tied up to the bumper of my old doughnut loving hot rod '67 Chevy pickup truck.

It is a revolver, though, so no matter how ugly it is, it will almost always fire when you need it to.

You also have to buy the ammo off of the internet. It's because most gun shops don't stock it due to being an oddball round.

Charter Arms is currently still making revolvers chambered in .32 Mag. But, there are rumors flying around in which they will end production at some point soon. Though, I have yet to confirm this.

This video from Salbarajas will walk you through the pros and cons of 32 H&R Magnum vs 38 Special for conceal carry:

The .32 H&R Magnum is an underrated self-defense firearm which is great for anyone who isn't fond of the recoil associated with a bigger round, or someone who just wants to quickly and accurately hit their target more than once. This capable self-defense cartridge has just enough stopping power to get the job done and make you feel much safer.

    I have owned a Ruger Single Six with 4 5/8 barrel in .32 H&R Magnum since they first came out. It is a lot of fun to shoot and very accurate. Mine does not lend itself well to concealed carry but I would not want to be on the receiving end of one of these rounds from one that does. The lack of readily available ammunition has stopped me from enjoying it as much as I’d care to though.

    Ive had a 380 acp bounce off my belt buckle and it didnt even dent it. Ive read many many stories of 38s bouncing or glazing off of the foreheads of bad guys. So I do like the punching power of the 32 mag. A hollow point wont work it ot dont penetrate. I also like the 6 rounds of most 32 revolvers. One can shoot the smaller 32s for practice and a 32 mag for when the adrenaline is pumping. Mag recoil will seem like 22s or squib rounds in life or death situations. Personally I still prefer the 357 mag but that is just me.
