There's a S&W 5906 for sale right now on GunsAmerica for $350 with sale pending, and another for $370. I use GunsAmerica for most of my market research as well as periodical gun shows. Gauging prices from the yearly magazine "buyers guides" like the 2010's out now on the new stands is unrealistic in my opinion and they don't always cover anything but most recent market introductions. It appears the model 5906 was the Illinois State Police duty weapon in 1993, and more than likely for other LE agencies as well. Ayoob wrote articles on the third generation S&W pistols in the May/June 1989 issue of American Handgunner. As for me and my opinions of S&W handguns and the company, that's another story. If I were to think about adding a full size pistol like this considering the weight of it, I'd probably rather have something chambered for 45acp. Just my opinion. I have know a couple of pistol shooters who have the 5906 model and swear by it. All in all, adding another pistol to the line-up at a good price and some accessories is generally a good idea no matter what.
