I believe at the end of the post I states as much. In my opinion the 6-shot 357 Mag N-frame is sort of silly (almost as silly as the 6-shot 357 Mag Redhawk). IMHO if you are stuck on 357 Magnum as the cartridge it should be an 8-shot N-frame, 7-shot L-Frame, 6-shot K-frame and 5-shot J-frame. But I am not a big fan of 357 Magnum in general. That said you finish your post with one of the best N-frames, if I am not mistaken a S&W 1917. Now that is a fine use of the N-frame, IMHO.
