I think for defensive I'd use the 65s.
This isn't the exact weights, but close

When I carried a .32, it was always loaded with hollow points except during the winter. Then, it carried fmj loads to better punch through the extra layers of clothing.

I carry round nose most of the time in my TCP. I just feel I have a better chance of hitting something vital.

Hollow points in my 9mm to slow it down after impact. If I really think I may have to use my gun I'm carrying my 1911 anyway cuz I hate to shoot twice.

This is just my opinion, but in .380acp and smaller I now carry FMJ because I want the penetration to vital organs. Hollow points can stop too fast and not get to where they need to get. America as a whole is getting fatter, and if you have to shoot a fat bad guy you have to get through the fat to a vital organ. Again, JMO

It sounds like Tolley and Walt like the FMJ's...
And it makes sense - smaller round and more penetration with a FMJ.
And Codger says FMJ's in the winter is a good idea - and it's definitely winter!!

I kinda thought about loading "every other one"
A FMJ and then a hollow point and so on...
And I don't know - I still might do that!! :thinkin:

But, I think I'll go with Huskers suggestion and go with the hollow points...

They sure felt a little more "snappy" than the FMJ ammo that I have.

And it is Magtech "Guardian Gold" ammo - Ammo made for self-defense.

And Husker, that sure was nice of you to post the ballistic information like you did!!
It makes it pretty easy to see the difference between them.

So Thank You for doing that!! :great:

And Thank You to all you guys for your opinions!!

Just about every one of you is a LOT smarter and more experienced than
I am when it come to pretty much everything concerning guns. :rules:

:mrgreen: That's why I love this place... :mrgreen:

I'm not an expert in ballistics for sure, and what the guys say makes a lot of sense, but I'd hate to rely on my coat to stop a bullet, even from a .32
I'm betting either one would make me seek cover. :wow:
All this .32 talk makes me feel like I need to get a .32 out and shoot it. :doublegun2:
I'm trying to remember what i have in .32
I have a Beretta tomcat with a cracked frame, but since Beretta wouldn't back their product, I just broke that piece off and keep shooting it.
Seems to work fine.
I also have an old Walther PP, a CZ 70, an old H&R self loading .32, and it seems like one more but I can't think right now what it might be.
Anyway, enjoy your little Kel Tec, this post has me carrying my P3AT again :great:

As the mall ninjas might suggest, Load three FMJ's, three hollow points- -double/triple tap the chest with FMJ man then if that doesn't stop the threat then the next three up will be the manstopping hollow points to the face man! Yea man that's how it done! :thumb: :thumb: :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:


:groan:

Now reality sets in... and the proven fact that fewer than one in ten bullets hits the target in a self defense situation (something along those lines anyway). The reality is that if the showing of the gun doesn't stop the threat and it has to be fired...good luck with that! :yes2:

I think I only have 2 .32acp pistols.. a Erma -Werke KGP 68A baby luger P08 in 32acp and a Hungarian FEG PA-63 in 32acp Both interesting guns for sure.

I have a friend that collects . 32s. Last count was 17 I think, he has a Walther that's worth about $4,000 among others.

Of course this guy has a collection that makes my head spin. He recently sold one of his old trap guns for $8,000.

He is probably one of those guys that was smart enough to start collecting way back in the day when the guns were a lot cheaper.... My heart breaks to think of the collection I had that I lost way back when I first came down sick.

He's the one that turned me on to the 41 Magnum. Has two Blackhawks, one he shoots and one still nib. Couple S&Ws in 41 and a lever gun.

I almost got a Super Blackhawk in 44 mag for $550. When he got it out to shoot me I notice I didn't even have the typical turn ring on the cylinder and he put a steel ejector housing on it.

I'd say a quarter of his collection is nib.

It'd be nice to have a pristine collection, but I buy mine to shoot :mrgreen:
I do have a S&W 25-2 that's all but NIB, I had to shoot it once. :oops:

I was going to carry my RIA officer 1911 in 9mm...but it's a little large...or is that my waistline that's too large? Settled for a Ruger LCP .380acp...like it alot, but the grips were just a little underwhelming...so added the Hogue grip to it, and it's much better. Pocket-able, the only thing I am not terribly fond of is the front sight...a quick dab of hi-vis green sight paint cured that. With it's pocket holster, and a pair of cargo pants...really doesn't print very badly.
