Shot From the Past: Iver Johnson Safety Automatic .32 S&W Revolver

The Iver Johnson Safety Automatic Revolver was the affordable pocket carry of the past.

Our friend mark3smle thorough reviews what this old revolver can do. Witness the Iver Johnson Safety Automatic Revolver in .32 S&W caliber put to the test.

Old revolvers always hold a special place in my heart. The Iver Johnson Safety Automatic Revolver was the inexpensive pocket pistol of that past. Our friend mark3smle got a chance to review one such revolver in the .32 S&W pip-squeak cartridge. While that cartridge is not a powerhouse any bullet hitting the right spot might get the job done.

On a personal story my grandmother with a steady hand well over half a century ago drilled a chicken coop raiding weasel through the head with the first shot. The extremely heavy and long double action only pull on her shrouded hammer revolver made it an even more epic shot.

Special thanks to mark3smle for taking the time to even do a ballistics gel test on the long forgotten .32 S&W caliber.
