Yes if it was all I had available, for sure it's better than no gun. Producing a firearm can end a threat w/o any shots being fired and often times does. I'm pretty good with my 8 shot SP101. Each round is equal to a low-recoil #4 buck pellet to me.
My G22 or any of my 45s would be better and the old Rem 870 would be best.
