I can only state that..
during WWII OSS agents chose to carry the Colt Model M in .32ACP over the .380 (9mmKurz). Main reason being the low recoil was more thought to be conductive to shot PLACEMENT (aka: accuracy).
The defender while exhibiting a "shotgun pattern" did stop further action and the felon appears to been fully "rattled" that his return firs missed.
The attorney prevailed and survived. Maybe upgrading to a 4" revolver, using
a caliber beginning with "4", might need to be considered.
