AP performance in pocket gun? If the belt gun CAN'T deliver A LOT more performance than that, why put up with the hassles of carrying it hmm? A lw Commander 1911 can offer 70gr Split Nose 3 segment prefrag at 2300 fps, or for big animals, 90 gr swc's at 2100fps. Now THAT might be enough of an increase in performance to merit carrying a 7.8" long, 28 oz pistol, The 70 gr load is fully as controlable as is .45 ACP ball ammo. The 90 gr swc is as controlable as is 45 ACP plus P 185 gr jhp ammo. Which is to say, a LOT more controlable than is .44 mag or 357 J frame snubby, with full charge ammo.
