OK, so getting back to the original question. Does a 9mm snubbie make sense? Still. . . NO. I shoot plenty of revolvers and as much practice as I get I still cannot put 15-19 rounds (typical modern double stack mag. 9mm capacity) downrange as quickly as I can with one mag in a pistol.

You're also forgetting that the "only" factor in this equation is not the shooter. The man in that video you linked to is using a revolver that is heavily modified and finely tuned, also not typical.

Getting back to the original question? In the original question, the OP made no mention of a semi-auto at all; but merely wanted opinions of the 9mm vs. a .38 Special or .357 Mag in a short barrel revolver based on ease of carry and ballistics, not rate of fire.
