    I saw a few of these LEO trade-ins and thinking about snagging one. Not a lot of reviews that I could find. Some complained about the rear sights and some say it's not too accurate... Any thoughts on this gun?

    IMHO one of the best pistols S&W ever produced. Solid, but a bit heavy by today's standards. Accurate and reliable.

    I picked up the 5906 today. At first glance it was rough looking. I took her home to give her a bath and the first thing she did was bite me :O.. But new owner, she's probably a bit nervous.

    I ordered some replacement rubber grips from NatchezSS. I would prefer some wood ones, but a quick search didn't locate any that I liked. Hopefully will have the grips in by next week so I can take her to the range.

    Very happy with a S&W 669 I found. Think you will find it very accurate.
