Moon clips (and half clips) are totally normal for non-rimmed cases like 9mm. Otherwise they cartridge isnt held secure.

There was moonclips for revolvers using rimless ammo back in the 1930's as I recall

Even before that . . .
From 1917 to 1919, Colt and Smith & Wesson produced 151,700 and 153,300 M1917s in total (respectively) under contract with the War Department for use by the American Expeditionary Force. The revolver saw prolific use by the "Doughboys" during World War I, with nearly two-thirds as many M1917s being issued and produced during the war as M1911s were.

Not only that but the original S&W made M1917 revolvers could shoot .45 ACP without the moon clips due to the fact they machined shoulders into the cylinder for the rimless cartridge. That being said you needed to eject them with a pencil or something of that nature if you weren't using moon clips.
