The Beretta 3032 Tomcat is a simple semi-automatic pistol with a single/double-action trigger mechanism that utilizes a blowback system of operation. Best described as a pocket pistol, the simple-to-use, simple-to-clean Tomcat is chambered for the .32 ACP cartridge and is best suited as a concealed carry option for civilians. Each pistol includes a 7-round magazine and a plastic carrying case.
Beretta, also known as Fabbrica d'Armi Pietro Beretta, is an Italian arms manufacturer that was established in 1526, making it the oldest active arms manufacturer today. The company has been family-owned since its inception and is known for its wide range of firearms, which include handguns, rifles, shotguns, submachine guns and much more – all of which find markets with the military, law enforcement agencies and civilians worldwide. Beretta USA, Beretta's American production facility, is stationed just a few miles down the road in Accokeek, Maryland. It is there that the Beretta 3032 Tomcat is manufactured.
As noted, the Beretta 3032 Tomcat benefits from a simple design. I say benefits because its simplistic design provides for ease-of-use, safety and practicality. The integral blade front sight combined with the notched rear sight provide for quick point-and-shoot aiming capabilities. The pistol also features a unique tip-up barrel, which not only makes hand-loading a cartridge directly into the chamber simple, but also aids in visual and tactile inspection of the barrel. This virtually eliminates all jamming and stovepiping issues while adding a less-than-conventional safety feature. This joins the frame-mounted manual thumb safety that doubles as a slide stop. Its meager dimensions make it a practical choice for personal protection and concealed carry. But just because it is one of Beretta's smallest, simplest pistols does not mean that it does not enjoy the same excellent quality control as their top-selling models.
The Beretta 3032 Tomcat features a 2.4-inch stainless steel barrel and an overall length of just 4.9 inches, making it one of the most easily concealed pocket pistols on the market. Its corrosion-resistant aluminum alloy frame contributes to the all-around light weight of the pistol, which is just 14.5 ounces. Like the barrel, the machined slide is also manufactured using stainless steel. And because it is a pocket pistol, it features a snag-proof profile with smooth contours that permit quick and easy draws. As noted, the pistol includes a single 7-round magazine.
Low cost does not always facilitate low quality. That is clearly evident with the simply-designed Beretta 3032 Tomcat. And whether you are a law enforcement officer seeking a backup pistol or a civilian searching for something suitable for concealed carry, the Tomcat is always a great choice.
