I have done the same with my 6" .357 not a big deal. I shoot any of my compacts at night I am blind. And If you are ever carring a revolver you leave an empty chamber. So yes .357 is very safe as a round and as a revolver way more so that any semiauto hands down
Yes, it is safer to carry a revolver with the first chamber empty. However, the trigger is the safety on the revolver. Don't pull the trigger and the gun won't discharge. Why would anyone want to short themselves on capacity? I have a .357 with 7 in the wheel and have every chamber full. That way if some bear or kayaker gets out of line.... I'm ready!
Revolvers are the best hand gun for personal defense. Semi autos are the best for a more offensive approach like law enforcement. So for recreation shooting or personal defense a revolver is the best. My personal favorite is the .357. However, a friend once told me that if you really need to get someone's attention and you start waving a .44 around that will for sure do the trick. Haven't tried that but I think he has a point.
Anyway..... go out and start shooting.
