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.
