Alright fellas,
So i have a Colt PPS that was made in 1963, stamped on the barrel is .32. Now this is where i need your help.

I have been searching all over the internet trying to find out exactly what it takes. i've read .32 long, .32 short and .32-20. i'm hoping there are some Colt experts that could help me out.

The gun is all original from what i can tell and in excellent condition. i really want to shoot it but i want to make sure i select the correct round. i know my best option is to take it to a gunsmith, but i haven't found a gunsmith in my area yet.

Try to measure the rear of one of the chambers in the cylinder. That will tell if it is 32-20 or 32SWLong. I think there is very little likelyhood that it is anything other than 32 Smith and Wesson long which Colt called 32 New Police. PM me if you want to get rid of it.

Not a 32-20, but a 32 S&W Long.. Very accurate little revolver nice find. I shoot a pre Model 30 S&W which is an I frame that is smaller than the J Frame. Holds 6 rounds and even with only a 2" barrel very accurate. I do carry it at times when the need is for a small framed handgun.
