    I'm not much of a handgunner but I do see the need/use for a good pistol so I recently picked up a used 5906 with Crimson Trace grips. It's about the same size as an officers model 1911 and the all steel construction makes for very mild recoil.

    Anyways I think I'm going to like this little gun and wondered what experiences you guys have had with them.

    The 5906 is one of the best auto pistols S&W ever made. Solid, accurate, reliable. They are a bit heavy but you will never wear it out.

    I've always liked the 5906. Good shooters, and super short trigger reset.

    I bought a 5906 almost 20 years ago. When I traded it away years latter it still worked/looked like new. A fine pistol and a good pistol to start with.

    I'd take a 5906 over any Sig.
