Okay I found something to distract me...
I've been offered a 1006 before. To be honest, while I think it's not really the idea CCW for me, I do think it's a sexy gun and I like it just fine. It's not something I'm going to dream about until I must have it, but I like it.
The reason I passed the first time was the gun had some minor issues like needing new sights and I felt the price was unreasonable and 10mm ammo is relatively rare and pricey.
I have another one available right now locally right at $400 and Tangle would approve as the previous owner was good to it... the sights are not the same as the other 1006 I looked at, they're adjustable target sights so either the more expensive option from the factory or aftermarket... some light work has been done on the gun, feed ramp polished, trigger's pretty nice.
It looks/feels awesome. I admit it. I love its long frame and barrel and thin profile and I love the aesthetics of stainless steel S&W autoloaders. That's just great.
But man, I wish it was a different caliber or that it could be converted somehow to shoot something else. 10mm is great but I am not ready to tackle that yet, and I'd never want a carry gun in 10mm unless it was for a special application like dangerous animals.
Did S&W ever make something like the 1006, same profile and all that, that was in another service caliber?
Just curious, not looking to move on this.
