I bought a used NAA .32 Guardian in new condition Saturday for my daughter to carry. I will give it to her IF she gets her CW permit. She is carrying a small 5 shot .38  revolver now in her car.
This Guardian is actually accurate at 10 yards, The barrel and slide are one piece; they are not separate pieces so no wobble. The thing is tiny only 3 1/3" high and 4 1/3" long. I got it, 121 cartridges, and a holster for a bit over $270.

If she has small enough hands, that should be a dandy!

I can shoot it OK but being so small, it actually kicks a bit when shooting those .32 acp shells. It's all stainless so it isn't real light like the plastic guns.

They are very nice CCW pistols.  My only .32acp is a prewar PPK that I love.

So-so for weak hands mainly due to the small size. There's not a lot to grab on to. I put my index finger in the trigger guard while holding the grip and pull the slide with the opposite hand.

Want to sell it? I have a weakness for pre-war pocket pistols.
 
I have a Colt model 1903 .32 acp. It shoots real good.



It's not in pristine shape like the one pictured above.

With small hands - a small guy, to start with - the PPK fits like a glove and lays easy in the hand.  It won't be sold as I inherited it from my FIL nearly 30 years ago.  He brought it back as a war souvenir and I have the papers and the German holster it came in.  Civilian model, I'm fairly sure; it has NO military markings though the holster has a soldier's serial # written on the inside.  It's in fine shape and is accurate at 25 yards.  Lots of bluing wear and I've thought about having it reblued.

Top is my PPK/S .380 acp, middle is my Manhurin .22LR PPK/S and bottom is the PPK.  The holster is visible at bottom right.

Ok my wife uses a .380 because everyone in the office this is what they carry and everyone has the same ammo. Which is good in a Firefight.

I shot it the other day and decided I like it as a carry weapon. Light easy to conceal put 7 in 6 inch Bull at 20 yards rapid fire off hand. Good enough for me.

I've had my Walthers for nearly 40 years.  I like the .380 a lot.  There are lighter .380s than the PPK series but I just rarely ever carry, anyway.

Anybody have opinions on whether to have the little PPK 7.65 reblued?
