    went to gun show for that, left with this

    Went to the GS yesterday looking for a G29, M&P 40c, and a Marlin 30-30. Well I ended up leaving with a S&W 6906 w/ 2 mags. The guy was packing up his stuff and getting ready to leave and he said make him an offer and it's mine. So I got it for an absolute steal. It's in GREAT condition and the barrel and inside chamber looks like it has never seen a round. There's some slight wear on the side of the barrel that looks like it was someone's EDC, but besides that it's beautiful.

    Vermont does not issue Permit/Licenses to Carry a Concealed firearm. Vermont allows anyone
    who can legally own a firearm to carry it concealed without a permit of any kind.

    I carried one of these, or its predecessor the 669, for over a decade. Of course, I sold the one I had. Now I miss it. Nice find!

    may I ask what you paid for it? My local shop has a few 6906 police trades I've been considering
    Springfield Armory XD 9mm service
    Sig Sauer P250c 9mm

    You can use either Mother's Mag polish, FLITZ or Simichrome polish. All will clean, not scratch and will make it shine.
    May we never forget those in uniform who protect us night and day in lands far away. And those in all wars who paid the supreme sacrifice in defense of our country. May God Bless our Troops and First Responders.

    anyone know where I can find the exploded diagram, I did a quick search but nothing turned up. I d/l the manual from S&W but it only covers field stripping and I have it in little pieces on the table already to clean the crap out of it, it's pretty dirty. When I pulled the hammer off a bunch of little levers came with it and I'm not quite sure where they go
