I have several .32 Handguns:
S&W 631 (4") .32 H&R Magnum
S&W 16-4 (6") .32 H&R Magnum
Ruger SP101 (4"0) .32 Magnum
TC - .32 H&R Magnum (with 10" SSK barrel with proper bore dimensions for 313"-314" bullets)
I have used all of them in the field with excellent results. The 16-4 is an excellent revolver - it's rather large size comes in handy after the game is spotted. It carries well in a Bianchi Hush System cross the chest holster. The smaller revolvers carry so well in a holster you hardly know that they are there until you need them. The TC has been used for Hunter Silhouette and also dedicated squirrel hunting where legal. It can also be carried in a "cross chest" holster system for all day comfort.
It all depends on your wants and desires...
Here is one of my better targets with the S&W 16-4 with Red Dot - 25 yards, standing (no support):
My most used load is 2.8 grs of win 231 behind a 100 gr Keith bullet in S&W Long cases. This does most of what I'll need most times "woods loafing". It is an excellent target and edible small game load. Of course, that same bullet in .32 H&R Magnum cases ahead of 10.0 H110 works much better if you run into a coyote, a ground hog, or a fox. This gives 1100 fps in the 6" barrel of the 16-4.
Frankly, for most of my use (target shooting and edible small game) the .32 S&W Long works just fine WITH PROPER BULLETS.
