Anybody have a basic starting price for a .32 Luger. I have a friend who can't shoot anymore (hand problems) and is looking to sell it but doesn't know the value.

If it is an Erma KGP68A, probably about $500. Outside of California on other websites.

Could you be more specific in regards to what pistol it is?
Pics would help.

Erma KGP 68 A

“Erma” is a contraction of Erfurter Maschinen und Werkzeugfabrik, later known as Erfurter Maschinenfabrik B Geipel GmbH., or simply Erma-Werke, originally located in Erfurt, Germany. The company was known early-on for making a .22 conversion for the P-08 Parabellum pistol, and during World War II they made the famous MP38 and MP40 machine guns. After the war and the division of Germany, the company was reconstituted in Munich-Dachau.

In 1964 Erma began production of the EP-22, a blowback- operated .22 rimfire pistol that resembled the famous P-08 Luger Parabellum pistol. At least one online source indicates that production was discontinued in 1969, though Ian Hogg states it was in the early ‘70s. In any case, in 1968 Erma began production of the delayed-blowback KGP-68 in both .32 and .380 calibers. The U.S. Gun Control Act of 1968 required the addition of a magazine safety, and the new designation for the guns became KGP-68A. An updated version of the .22 was made with the designation KGP-69. Late production guns were designated KGP-22, KGP-32, and KGP-38. The KGP-68 was also rebranded as the Beeman MP-08. Erma-Werke went bankrupt in 1997.

For a brief time the Spanish company Echasa (Echave y Arizmendi) made a copy of the EP-22, which was known as the Lur Panzer. It is very scarce today.

If this is the gun in question it is a copy of a Luger. Are you sure it's a .32 and not a .30 Luger aka 7.63 Luger?
