I somewhat vaguely recall that there was another Taurus pistol in the PT92/99, PT58 "family" (that is, of similar design and construction). Perhaps a .32? Anybody remember?

The .380 "family member" is the PT58, which I found in 95% condition last year. The model I am trying to place would be a Taurus interpretation of the Beretta .32acp Cheetah most likely-

(And do my eyes deceive me, or is the safety on the frame?)

Closed slide, though. Last ones I saw for sale were at the Ky Gun Co.
No, as I recall it was just as the PT92 line. There was another .380 that was more along the design of the PT945/940/957 line but a much smaller frame. This was a closed slide/barrel

I don't recall there being a 32 cal Taurus. But then what do I know? Better yet, what all have I forgotten?

ahhh--the not to long ago Taurus 732???
a TCP chambered in 32 auto instead of 380 auto.
I think it was made for like 60 days and hen disappeared.

The more I think of it, the more certain I am that I saw the .32 Cheetah and wished there were a stainless counterpart by Taurus to match my PT58 and PT92.

Those Beretta cross-overs are sweet, fine pistols...

The only one I can think of was designed and manufactured for Taurus by Michael McDoesntexist.

IIRC, the Beretta Cheetah in .32 is the Model 81. It is, in appearance if not function, a mini 92. Bud's has one for sale on line, although it is a bit pricey. You can also take the Cheetah model 84 in 380 and drop in a .32 barrel.

Here's the "family" I would have liked to add to-

PT-58 don't..."
