"...which means my 5.35" glock 9 is on par with a 3" .357 mag."
3 inch S&W J frame
125gr. Jacketed Hollow Point = 1476 fps
From Buffalo Bore
Energy of 605 foot-pounds for a 125 grain bullet at 1476 fps
The 9mm is a good choice, but just don't get all excited and pretend it is something it is not, i.e. a .357 mag. Just be happy that is is a good choice for self-defense.
