My father told me if I got hit in the hand with a 45, with my arm extended, it would spin me around.

I am now 57 and do not believe that.

I used to pitch on a softball team, and would get three or four screamers coming back my way every season, and catching some, with arm extended, felt as if they could have dislocated my shoulder.
I'd expect any pistol bullet to punch a neat hole in your hand with little energy transfer, but if you were wearing a Kevlar glove you might not "spin around", but you would certainly sense a sudden change in status.
