Classified as .32 S&W Long for revolver (could also be Short, in which case the nomenclature, I believe, is .32 S&W). Generally an unjacketed lead bullet with a rimmed cartridge, while for pistol it is .32 ACP. The bullets are usually copper or cupro-nickel jacketed and the cartridge is rimless. The rimmed/ rimless affair is basically designed for the extraction process in both types of firearms due to their differing operational mechanisms.

.32ACP is a semi rimmed cartridge.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their consciences.
