I would perhaps argue his precision with a pistol verge on being a superpower.Reliably shooting guns out of somebody’s hand at range seems to be beyond the normal human compass.

What do you mean wolf/dog? Devil is a wolf and never a dog. It has been clearly mentioned in several of Falk’s strips that Devil is a wolf and NOT a dog.
