Yes- one round of each, in exactly the same place, your .357 is probably the better stopper.

Your friend's pistol is:

1. More comfortable to shoot
2. Possibly more accurate
3. Holds more rounds
4. Might be more concealable due to the width

Different strokes for different folks. I personally wouldn't choose a PPK because there are lighter, more concealable choices in 9mm. That doesn't mean he's wrong, or that his choice won't work for him.
Because of the metric system?
