    S&w 5906

    Thoughts on the S&W 5906?

    How reliable is it? What ammo is the best rout to go with it?

    Never had a chance to fire one but I found a decent deal on one.

    I'll be picking it up tomorrow, so I'm hoping to get some opinions on it tonight.

    It will primarily be a home defense pistol - later on I may use it to get my CHL. This will also be the pistol I'll be teaching my fiance to shoot with.

    Thanks for the help guys

    As reliable as any gun out there. As far as ammo, whatever is decent price for practice. I like the speer gold dot 124+p for a defense load. It's an all steel 9mm, so recoil is going to be mild for teaching purposes.

    I've seen a lot of them on the line when they were issued here. Heavy but very reliable. Make sure you like the DA/SA trigger system first, some people don't.

    Outstanding gun; extremely reliable. Depending on which variant you get (stainless steel or alloy frame) a bit heavy.

    Not in fashion these days 'cause it's not an M&P or some other polymer-framed wunderpistolen or a 1911.
