Default Atlanta sources of ammo for .32 cal. long...

I have a .32 cal. S&W, 4-1/4" barrel (measured from front of cylinder to muzzle); seven patent dates on barrel range from March 27, 94 to Sept. 14, 09 (inherited it from my grandfather). The nickel coating is pretty badly worn, but the gun is mechanically solid; the best I can gather from your forums is that it's only worth about $200-$250 in that condition, but it's a perfect home firearm for personal protection. My problem is finding ammunition; our local gun shop only had target-shooting "wad-cutters," which I suspect wouldn't have much stopping power for personal protection. I would like to buy a box of standard round-nose cartridges, but they're hard to find. Is there an online source, or does anyone know of a source near Atlanta, GA? Thanks--

Georgia Arms (Villa Rica GA) had some at last weeks gun show. Hollow points, ah 22 bucks for 50 rounds I think. Give them a call, they will hook you up.

I can't help you with the value of your handgun, but you sound a bit optimistic to me, since it needs refinishing.

Bass Pro Shop usually stocks .32 long, as does David's Gun Room, Bull's Eye, and American Classic Marksman.

I like .32 caliber handguns. The flat wadcutter bullet is actually a better choice than a round nose for transferring what little energy the cartridge has to it's target.

Default 32 S&W ammo

I purchased some from Midway (online) about 3 weeks ago.
I picked up a box of Remington round nose and a box of Magtech hollow points.
Both performed very well.
