The Beretta 3032 Tomcat is a .32 ACP pocket pistol with a few twists. It’s a double-action/single-action design, so the first trigger press is heavy. After that, the single-action press isn’t too bad at all. The action is straight blowback, possible due to the small caliber chambering. In a cross between the old-school European heel magazine release slide levers and American buttons located up near the trigger, the Tomcat has a button on the side of the left grip panel, but near the base. It won’t win any speed reloading contests without some serious practice.
The Tomcat uses seven-round magazines and when you count the cartridge dropped into the chamber, that’s a total of eight. Simple sights and its 4 ¾-inch overall length make the Tomcat well-suited for a second gun or backup use. It’s great to carry as a last-ditch option in an ankle holster.
