    For its intended purpose, yes. I think it is.

    I've never handled an S&W that was not a quality product. Personally I'm not a fan of their auto pistol designs but that's completely subjective. I'm sure there well built, reliable, and accurate.

    The trick is to always shoot it before you buy it.

    I have a few S&W pistols (not that model though). The only downside I have seen is a real hard trigger pull. I carry mine and as much as I'd hate to use it, I'd be confident in it's ability if God forbid the time came to.

    If you know the pistol and it's in good condition, you're fine. If it was mine, I'd have no problem carrying it.

    If you can shoot it with decent accuracy, and it does not jam, its a good one.

    S&W makes fine pistols. I've got a 1076 in 10mm, 1911 in .45acp and an M&P40. All three are excellent.

    The 6906 is a quality handgun. The higher capacity magazines for the 5906 will also work. As far as value? The metal frame Smith 9's have no collector interest and have been supplanted by the newer polymer frame guns for carry.

    Even in very good condition a 6906 probably would not bring more than about $350 depending on the buyer and the market.

    I have a 3913 and it is a good shooting pistol. Back when I bought it, S&W's were considered one of the best 9 mm semi's as it was before most of the polymer pistols hit the streets, except for Glocks. The 6906 is a higher capacity version and should be a fine shooter. It should be a keeper and last you a lifetime unless you feed it a steady diet of +P+ rounds. I rarely carry my 3913 anymore. The safety bites into my side a little bit, and it is a small safety at that. A file took care of some of the discomfort but the design just isn't even as comfortable as the extended safety on my 5" 1911.
