    I swapped a rifle that I didn't need for this little Astra 32S&W Long revolver. I swapped it late last year, but due to the holidays, etc 12Hr race meeting (our range is on the side of a race track), I only picked it up today.

    It's a little bit small for my big hands, but I always fancid havign a play with one. I'd prefer a Smith and Wesson, but they are as rare as rocking horse poop and as dear as poison here, so an Astra it is.

    I like it. Especially the cartridge case in the grip! I've never fired an Astra revolver but their autos are first rate.

    I'd been wanting one of these for awhile, and the stars finally came together.

    Everyone can learn from their mistakes. However; it's less painful, and cheaper to learn from the mistakes of others.

    I did too, but when I got it I realised that it was a 38Special case. The guy I got it off said that the Astra badge was missing from that side when
    he bought it many years previously and the hole was too big for a 32S&W Long case head. My friend has a mill, I'm thinking of getting him to machine the 38Special casehead out to take a sawn off 32 case.
