There's a couple of boxes of 32 S&W Long wad cutters at my LGS too. At the moment there's no 9mm or 380. The 9mm and 380 scarcity will hopefully be short term. What you see with 32's is normal. There's never much in my area. Buying online when and where you find it mitigates this issue......or you reload..32 S&W Long was the only handgun ammo on the shelf last week at the former Gander Outdoors near me. So at least some ammo is available.
I guess I can spin it another way. I haven't noticed a price increase on the .32 like has happened with 9mm.
I enjoy my 32 H&R and my .327 federal. I can see .32 as a good option for someone with arthritis.
