What gun do you have waiting on a buyback?

Since we are doing all the What XXX, 

Here is this beauty and a finer example you will not see.  Its SA/DA with the single action breaking at a crisp wayabovetheabilityofmytriggergaugetomeasure pounds. I estimate the DA to break somewhere between 45 and 60 pounds. It weighs in amazingly overweight for what it is which is good because if you shoot someone with this, you might make them mad and you will need a weapon. Although you might need that to tame the recoil of the massive 32 S&W so the heavier the better.
pictured here showing it being similar sized to the overbore 45acp

But wait, theres more... For fast reloading, all you have to do is depress the plunger in front of the cylinder and withdraw the pin. Don't worry, if you can pull that trigger the pin will come out with only a bit more force. Then you separate the cylinder from the revolver, use the pin the knock out the cases, reinsert fresh very expensive ammunition, place the cylinder back into the revolver and reinsert the pin while wiggling the plunger. Done 


Its a H&R 632 32 S&W. It is the cheap version of the cheap H&R 732 that I inherited. I honestly don't think anyone would take it in trade and I wouldn't feel right selling it to anyone I even marginally get along with.

It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.

    Are you picturing 32 S&W or the  far more powerful 32 S&W long ?

    Only 3 I have that would ever be on a list like that would be a DB380, CW380, and PF-9.  This would only be due to great lack of resale value and if I decided they really needed to go away and I couldnt give them to a friend or family.

    The sleeker and more compact 32 S&W

    None, closest I got was I recently got a Jennings .22 as part of an estate sale that even at $100 I could not unload locally.  Shot it and it was actually reliable so I gave it to my MIL as a nightstand gun since she is NEVER going to shoot it.

    I don't think I've ever seen 32 S&W with that style wad cutter only the 32 S&W long.

    That's really kicking the wheelchair out.

    When I met her, my wife had a Lorcin .380.  It is a very heavy single shot pistol that holds several rounds.  It resides in the back corner of the safe.  Have thought about turning it in for the money or gift card, but just cant do it

    Would that make it any less of a turd? I will look tonight, which means I will have to touch it again, shudder....

    Your not just whistling dixie there. Every bit the equal of the venerable 270 winchester.

    If you turned it in, you would be destroying a bad gun to purchase a good gun. Go for it.

    I, also, have a Iver Johnson .32 S&WL and the trigger is too stiff; not 45 lbs fortunately.


    This is my range of .32 ammo----.32 S&W; .32 S&WL; .32 H&R mag; and the magic .327

    Yes, but it would go against everything I believe and give the gun grabbers a trophy

    I would agree if you turned in a Python or grandpa’s prized war bring-back German Mauser.  A Lorcin?  I’d look at it as taking advantage of their foolishness 😁

    That’s my take as well.

    There is a broken bolt action shotgun also, but the wife wont part with one of her late fathers guns

    Found it. Not worth salvaging. It is a JC Higgins Model 583.4
    It is rusted, trigger broken, safety broken, stock brock and a u shaped piece of metal bolted on to hold it together, and just read it was recalled 40 years ago because the bolt would fly out the back and hit the shooter in the face when fired.

    I have nothing like that. Every gun I own i love or I wouldn't have bought it. And if i had one like that I wouldn't do the anti's that organize these buy backs the honor of selling anything to them. If I would sell one it would be to a gun person, not to a buy back to be mercilessly cut up or destroyed. I won't let the scumbags have that satisfaction.

    Son that's somebody with nothing to do with his time but keep me in trouble with mom.

    I don't have any junk guns and never bought one even when I was younger.  Went without.  They don't have buy-backs where I live, but I'm sure there a lot of junkers out there.  We in the OCSO used to teach Women Only classes to civilians and some brought some pretty junky guns. It was all they could afford.  Ranges were short and it was a morale booster rather than an accuracy course and a lot of older women would show up with Highpoints which were fine. Some with .25s  Most of the women had never fired their guns before and they loved it and were proud of themselves  and some took their targets home with them.
    Concealed carry is for protection, open carry is for attention.

    I stand corrected.  That last statement is terminal in my book!  This one should stay broken...

    Didn't buy it, inherited it. It was the reason I gave my father the single six and sold him the security 6 for a lot less than it was worth. I figured if he was going to have a handgun, having one that would be effective would be a better idea. 

    He suggested that I give this to one of my daughters.... not on a bet. I bought a E9CS for the one that is of age.
