For me, the only pistol caliber cartridges I trust in FMJ would be .357mag and .45 Auto.

.45ACP hardball out of a standard length barrel has a historically proven 62-65% one shot stop rate. Usually that meant shot dead, or so badly injured the fight wasn't continued with one .45ACP hardball to the chest.

It's reputation as a manstopper was hard earned and is well proven.

While I would prefer and carry modern HP, I wouldn't feel underarmed if limited to that load. Even in a compact platform.
