Simply put, a full-power or standard Magnum load out of a 2" barrel is similar to a +p 9mm load out of a 4" or service size 9mm pistol. The question isn't whether or not there is a difference in terminal performance but a matter of controlling the weapon. A snubby revolver is really hard to tame with standard Magnum loads. Either light Magnum or .38spl +p loads should be used to tame recoil and brutal muzzle flash. The vast majority of SD shootings happen in low-light situations.
