I have never shot or used a 1903 .32 caliber pistol in my lifetime. But today my LGS unwrapped this little pistol from Colt that was such a little beauty in it's standard blued finish. It was so light, and all rollmarks so sharp and deep. The wood grips with Colt medallions were soo fine. I can't imagine any .32 caliber to do anything other than cause shallow puncture wounds so why was this issued to General Officers? Any way I couldn't resist and put this in layaway for my Christmas gift or Chinese Flu gift later.
