Oh, I know people do, but I'll never understand it.
Take your 3" K-frame versus my Glock 33
The K-Frame weighs 36oz empty, the Glock weighs under 20oz empty and just 26oz LOADED, with 10 rounds versus the K-Frame's 6 or 7. The loaded K-Frame is at least 50% heavier than the loaded 33. I could carry 2 spare mags, totaling 28 rounds and have less weight than a 6 shot K.
The Glock is 6.5" long, the K is 8.2
The K, 1.47" wide, G33 1.18.
Despite being 33% longer, the K manages only about the same sight radius as the 33.
Ya'll can carry whatever you want
and I'd love a big, fat, heavy, 460SVR for hunting, but there's no way I'd carry a revolver for defense.
