Is an 0.12 joules gun more powerful than an 0.4 joules gun?
Also if you can give me a brief explaination on who the joule system works i'll be grateful

i believe you are correct. joules are a unit of measurement, and as the amount of joules increases, the amount of power increases, and since .4 is a larger number than .12 (lol Jesus-Owns-X) it would be more powerful, no?
if i were to tell you how i would describe a joule, you'd just get lost... and probably end up knowing nothing. so here, i have this paragraph i pulled up on google, that might be a bit confusing... but gives the breakdown on the joule, and how they calculate it's value.
the SI unit of work or energy, defined to be the work done by a force of one newton acting to move an object through a distance of one meter in the direction in which the force is applied. Equivalently, since kinetic energy is one half the mass times the square of the velocity, one joule is the kinetic energy of a mass of two kilograms moving at a velocity of 1 m/s. This is the same as 107 ergs in the CGS system, or approximately 0.737 562 foot-pound in the traditional English system. In other energy units, one joule equals about 9.478 170 x 10-4 Btu, 0.238 846 (small) calories, or 2.777 778 x 10-4 watt hour. The joule is named for the British physicist James Prescott Joule (1818-1889), who demonstrated the equivalence of mechanical and thermal energy in a famous experiment in 1843. Although Joule pronounced his name "jowl", the unit is usually pronounced "jool" or "jew'l".
and uhhh, might as well dump the wiki link for ya here, too. hope that helped o_O
