These results show how utterly pathetic all of these rounds are when shot in a 2" snubnose revolver.

Even the best .32 H&R Mag load only produces a pathetic 161 ft/lbs of energy. That is only 73% of what a good .380 Auto self-defense load can generate. And only half that of a really mild 9mm load.

And the rimfires are ridiculously low powered. Even the best .22 Magnum load only produced 116 ft/lbs from the snubnose.

Having one of these guns would be better than being totally unarmed in a fight, but I sure would not want to trust my life to one.
