    Pretty much a .45 Colt - Long Colt thing, except .32s are less popular now and people haven't got their minds made up.

    To clarify a bit further, .32 S&W is .32 S&W and has not been called "short" by Smith and Wesson or any ammo company I have seen.
    There still IS some .32 Short Colt, which is not the same thing.

    Good work, and not even an eightshooter.

    If they didn't like me elevating my muzzle for clean ejection, I'd be unhappy. Nobody knows how a revolver works any more.

    What is a "pre-tensioned barrel" on a 9mm? I understand the term on rifles and .22 pistols, but not how it works on a short recoil auto.
