Here's my tribute to the S&W 3rd. Generation semi-autos.
Thank you so much! I like that 39 too (it's actually factory nickel).
Thanks for sharing. I am a big fan of 3rd Gen S&W semi-auto pistols.
“I won't be wronged. I won't be insulted. I won't be laid a-hand on. I don't do these things to other people, and I require the same from them.” John Wayne, "The Shootist."
I'm also a huge fan of 3rd Gen &W semi-autos. It's a shame they're no longer in production.
I agree. I wish S&W would bring them back like they did the classic revolvers.
I fail to see the advantages of "modern" polystriker platforms over a quality DA/SA metal frame handgun like the S&W 39/69/59/40/10/45XX series.
Arkancide- Three self-inflicted gunshots to the head with hands tied behind the back.
Active Shooter Response- Assess the situation, Position yourself to gain tactical advantage, Engage perpetrator violently (APE).
Cool ! I carried plenty of those suckers back in the day. Many different models and calibers. They all worked just fine for me.
“Out of every one hundred men, ten shouldn't even be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a warrior, and he will bring the others back.”
Great video as usual I only have one older s&w a 669 . I never carried mine mine much but the triggers better than most DA/SA with a da pull of 8lb 4oz average and sa pull of 3lb 2oz average but the trigger design is what I consider the best pistol trigger out there being wide , polished and nicely radiused . Just easy to shoot well .
Thanks! Very nice......
I've had a few 2 Gen and 3 Gen S&W pistols over the years. Sadly, most were traded off in a quest for something "better." I really would like to have my 5926 back.
Gotta disagree. I carried a 5906 for 3 years as my duty weapon. Heavy, bulky, lousy trigger pull and not the most accurate pistol I have ever had. From the 5906 we switched to the SIG P-220. Excellent pistol all around, great DA trigger, Aluminum frame and very accurate.

Great video as always. Learned a lot and I had thought I already had a pretty good grasp on the history of the platform’s lineage. I sure do love mine.

An intruder will be incapacitated by tear gas or oven spray, but if shot with a .357 Magnum will get angry and kill you.
I'm a sucker for two-tone pistols!
