Re: H & R 732 SideKick
It was made for the civilian market - there was very little police interest in 32 S&W Long at the time these guns were made. The intended uses were casual target shooting, small game hunting, and home defence.
As time went on, people increasingly preferred either 22 rimfire or 38 Special for these purposes, but 32 Long was the most powerful cartridge H&R offered in a swing-out cylinder gun until they introduced 32 Magnum in the late 1980's. 32 Long is no longer very popular, but you can still get it in a good gun store or via the internet. It costs more than 38 Special, however.
