32 Automatic Colt Pistol Handgun Cartridge:
 The 32 automatic colt pistol cartridge was designed by John Browning in 1899, this cartridge is also known as the 7.65 Browning. Low operating gas pressures from this cartridge make it quite easy for the average shooter to be more accurate with this cartridge than a larger caliber self defense pistol. This cartridge is still popular today for the simple fact of the small lightweight handgun frame sizes that are easily concealed on a person and low recoil for the shooter.
