    Nice purchase man. Only thing I can't stand that im seeing more and more of is the external extrator that laps over the rear serrations. IMO it looks so weird. Really diggin the checkered reciever and trigger guard, though. Looks good.

    Nice gun, very under rated carry piece. Need to work on your grip.

    I've got the 6906 and it's a sweetie. The 3913 is a bit slimmer for CC use. Tough to beat a good S&W 3rd Gen in any model. Enjoy!

    Your 3913 is a beauty! I love the 3rg Gen Smith semi-autos. Have carried my 915 for years. But it requires more effort to conceal than your single-stack 3913.

    If you don't mind sayin', what did it cost you?

    Great Find! I have been looking for one at length, and finally gave up, and gave in to buying a Walther PPS (not a bad give in!). Should be here soon.

    Always fun to fondle and fire a 39 series. Don't know about the grip, but the rest of it looks to be in great condition. Nice gun.

    Just a little north of $400. But, I've always had a soft spot for stainless.

    My first carry gun was a 6946 (double stack version) and love it. It is one gun I will never be selling. I still carry it once in a while.

    It also was the first gun I made a holster for.

    I see youe are in E. TN. Mind telling me what range you are on, doesn't look like Coal Creek or Gunny's.
    Thanks.
