KTRange Secret:
Make a grip for your P-32 any color you want!
First, order an Ivory grip from KT - 20 bucks.
Now... buy a packet of Rit dye powder a shade LIGHTER than what you want. I used Rose Pink for my test piece: it looks that way in the pic, but in person it's almost red.
Use a two-quart pot, and dump the entire packet of powder into it. Add one quart of water and bring to a boil. Stir up the dye till the salt is fully dissolved, then lower the heat to a slow simmer. Mmmmm!!! No, don't drink it.
Make sure your grip doesn't have the hammerblock or mag catch in it. Then, lower it into the boiling dye with a fork, gently swishing it around to allow the liquid into all the nooks and crannies.
Let it simmer for at least 20 minutes. No less!
The dye will fully penetrate the polymer, not just coat the outside.
Now, rinse it THOROUGHLY with cold water. Get every trace of salt off; it's not a bad idea to use soap. You don't have to worry about washing the dye off. It's in there!

Now dry it, put everything together, and either give it to someone or go to the range with your new, "Custom Combat" P-32!
