Can a .32 acp round penetrate a human skull?

im thinking bout buying a Tomcat .32acp pistol but can this baby pistol even defend you? i want to start with an inexpensive pistol and easy to manage on the recoil side...i could get several shots off in a short amount of time....but can this round penetrate a human skull or even reach vital areas? what do you think?
