    The Lipsey's guy at the Shot Show in a video said the guns will start shipping at the end of February.

    Careful loading titegroup in revolver loads for defense. I shot an IDPA match with my 642, belly band holster and speed strips in pocket. Shot it like I carry it, basketball shorts and tshirt. After a fast cylinder of 5 shots and titegroup that cylinder was getting so hot it made it hard to flip it out and do reloads. I would do Win 244 or sport pistol for similar load weights but cooler running temps.

    Placed an order for the blued 38 Special version today through Scheels, unknown ETA. Haven’t been this excited about a J Frame in a long time. Ordering a Tulster Rath in whiskey color and an Apex trigger kit as well.

    Those of you ordering the 32, where are you finding ammo?

    https://www.sgammo.com/catalog/pisto...32-hr-mag-ammo

    They start at a little over $1 a ROUND. Not for me.

    I believe a lot of the .32 mag fans reload their ammo. That's the only way to keep the cost down. But with the price of primer and powder today, I don't know how much you can save.

    I totally get what you're saying but from a defensive standpoint l'm betting you won't even notice that warm cylinder if you're performing a reload and your life is on the line.

    I've banished TG because of this. I shot a pin match relay one hot day that required a reload. Six rounds of 357 mag with a 173 gr Keith and TG. By the time I went through the sixth round the gun felt strange in my hand, it just didn't fit my hand at all anymore. I looked down at my 686 and the Hogue grips were misshapen, the nylon backer that the rubber was attached to had softened. Since I lost the relay anyway I just went home. I pulled the remaining ammo down and ordered a wooden Hogue grip that the 686 wears to this day. Yes, TG gets very hot!

    I’ve tried a couple LGS and so far I have been unable to order one. Where is everyone going to get on the list?

    Buying lead bullets I reload it for under $10 per 50. That's with current primer pricing.

    The least expensive ammo to use for practice in a .327 or .32 mag gun if you don't reload is .32 S&W Long.
