Default Snub Pistol Power

I was fiddling on the Wiki and found the article on snub pistols. It read that snub pistols shoot a 6 gram projectile at 100-150 meters per second (92 grain bullet at 410 feet per second)

Putting that into a energy calculator, it put out that the bullet is carrying 57 joules (30-ish ft-lbs) of energy at the muzzle.

As a side note, a 22 long rifle bullet carries 100 ft-lbs of energy depending on the loading.

So, this may just be to make note of this, but that seems incredibly low in power. Thoughts?

I know that it wasnt meant to be read like this, but it crossed my mind reading it. Accelerator weapons also come to mind with this issue but they at least have boosters to get more velocity.
