.32 is a pretty crappy caliber anyway IMO. Why have a .32 when you can have a .380 for the same size? Though if you want a pistol for concealment, I don't think HP is your company. For around $250 you can get a Kel-Tec P3AT (or if you must, a P32) that will be amazing for CC and not break the bank. Sure .380 is pretty hard to come by right now, but at least I have seen it, whereas .32 I haven't seen in quite a while. I'm not really sure why you'd want a .32 carbine...but if they did make one I doubt enough people would buy it to justify their expenses.

I know you are a new member here...but if you think about what you post before post it people will respect you a lot more. HPs business model is low cost weapons in common calibers, and the most common calibers are 9mm, .40, and .45. TBH, I'm surprised they made a .380. Common calibers mean a larger market, and mass production leads to lower fixed cost by spreading the cost across a larger number of units. To invest in something like .32 they would need to spend a large sum of money to make a product in a somewhat odd caliber with a small market...which is exactly the opposite of HPs business model.

How about a 25acp pump action carbine with forward magwell, accepts 5rd (mouse hunting) or 20rd mags (SHTF?), with a laminated stock and a ported barrel? :cry2:

PPK pistols are delayed blowback, NOT pure blowback like HP is. it is important to differentiate between the two. delayed blowback pistols can be much lighter and smaller than pure blowback but the stresses on the gun are much higher and thusly they must be made of higer tensile materials (steel vs ZAMAK).

be nice, there is reason why the first sticky in this forum is "the dumbest suggestion" thread.

And I'm unlocking it.

What's this about PPK being "delayed blowback?"

Not necessarily a bad idea for the carbine. It would have about the same energy as a 22 lr. But as far as that goes, if they made a 22 carbine that would shoot hyper velocity or magnums it would be more economical to shoot.

I would maybe buy both. The 22 because everyone wants a cool 22, and the 32 just for the "because nobody else makes one" factor.

I think that you are thinking of the 25 ACP. The 32 ACP has a good deal more energy than the 22 LR. Not up to something like that 380 of course but significantly more.

I think that it sounds neat. I wouldn't buy one but I can see why someone else might want to.

I've got a bunch of CZ-50 and CZ-70 .32 caliber pistols, I wouldn't have an issue with them as a BUG.

.
yup. I also have a CZ 70 and I think that it is a really neat gun. It is very advanced in many ways for something designed in the 50s. It can be carried Condition One and has a built in decocker. Very advanced for the time.

I think the response that "HP will never make this" because it violates their
"business model" was a good one, but the lock was not needed. :p

Now I get where you guys said the old forum was infested with d!cks,
at least in part :rofl: m00nz could have hung with them, matching
"dicky-ness" with his own brand :D

I already have a .32 ACP carbine.

And a .32 rifle.

Well, OK, it's a chamber insert for the Mosin, it fits the 91/30 or the M44, and is really pretty pointless...but it's cute.:p
