9mm ammo will require moon clips for use in a revolver, as does the .45 acp. I had a S&W Model-1952, with a 5″ pencil barrel, an N-frame. It was okay, but I did not like the moon clips, the half-moon clips, or the 2×2 clip sections. 1911 was the way to go. N-frame is much better in .44 Magnum or .44 Special.

The reasons (paraphrased):
9mm is the most common handgun round in the world
9mm is effective
A revolver is extremely reliable…
