I have no idea why everyone does not have a clip knife with an Emerson opener?!?!? They're amazing.

On thread topic, I carry my 6906 all the time, mainly in a Cross Breed Super Tuck. Sometimes wearing a tucked in t-shirt or button down. Most times with an untucked shirt. And have never gotten a glance nor gasp from anyone.

I bought the Super Tuck for my first 3rd gen which was the last 908S in a store brand new, crazy that my Dad found it in Buffalo and had it FFL'd to me. After shooting his 3913 I wanted one and was finally getting back into firearms after too long of not shooting through college, moving around, etc. The Super Tuck made for the 908 fits all my 3rd gens including the 6906, 5903, 5906, 5946 and another 5903. Square or round guards.

I have a Desantis OWB with thumb break for hiking and more active times when concealment isn't the priority. It fits the 908 and 6906 perfectly.

The 6906 is obviously bulkier with the double stack and ambi decocker but not crazily so. Makes me smile to myself thinking I'm taking responsibility for myself, family and friends (and of the snowflakes who have no idea and would be aghast if they only knew).

They listed the 6906 and I think the 669, but Iím not certain in that one. That had me thinking about how well that 6906 would work as a carry piece. I donít know what they weigh, but they hold 12 rounds donít they? Iíd like to hear about your experiences with carrying and/or owning either of these 9mm pistols, particularly the 6906.



Also, thereís a few of the 3rd Gen pistols in 45acp that I really like too, like the 4513 or 4516. I also REALLY liked the TSW versions in the 3rd Gen autos. Those are getting very hard to find in affordable prices now.
Anyone carry one of the non M&P 45acp autos? Isnít there also a 457 that is kinda a twin to the 4513 or 4516? If so, Iíd like to know more about that one too.

Please post pics of your carry dig if you have any. Everyone LOVES gun porn!!

Thank for your time everyone. Please take care of yourselves and your families out there in these crazy times weíre living in.

Larry


Ps.....I almost forgot to mention another auto thst I really like and would love to have at some point......the model 59 or 39, in nickel. Gorgeous pistol. Anyone own these? If so, how about some pics?

Here is some model 39, 59 porn.

I've discovered the all steel Sarsilmaz K2-45 handgun in .45 ACP. It has a 4.7" Barrel and a 14 Round magazine and Adjustable Rear Sight. It can be obtained new for less than $400. It is hammer fired , NOT one of the striker fired polymer frame guns being pushed on the market today. Sarsilmaz is the supplier of the handguns to the Turkish military. It is very accurate right out of the box and has become one of my CC handguns.

I have a 4013TSW, 4513TSW and a 3953TSW in the carry rotation. I like the 3rd gens the best, but I do have a Shield 9mm and a 642-1 in the rotation as well. It just depends on the time of year and what I'm wearing as to which one I carry.

I gave my Model 469 to my grandson to replace his Bulgarian Makarov as a carry gun. He likes it.

Here is my BNIB 6906 manufactured in March, 2001. I am debating if I should sell it or not? If I do not sell it, this will become my new concealed carry gun. I concealed carried a 6906 in the late 80's to the mid 90's, sold it and went to a Sig platform. Now I may go back to this 6906! Only shows what was old, becomes new again. I'm glad I kept my lime green leisure suit and platform shoes so when it's back in style, I'll be ready!

That is a fantastic looking 6906 Zebra! You might just regret selling that one, I know I would. I say hold onto that fine example and use it!

I typically rotate through 4 or 5 handguns for daily carry, depending on what I'm expecting to get into or where I might be going. If I'm expecting to be at the desk all day I might opt for the 4516 IWB. I love the way it shoots and I'm very confident in it and my ability to hit what I'm aiming at.

When it get's into the really hot & muggy days (like it's just now starting to do), I'll switch to the Shield 45, both with and extra mag or two. When I feel really nostalgic, I carry the 66-1 snubby, with a couple of zip strip reloads.

But most often I find myself carrying the 6906 with a 5906 mag w/adaptor, and a spare. I can't for the life of me recall what holster this is, but it rides the 6960 at just the right height and angle for me. I can be in the truck seat all day without noticing it's there until I reach down to unbuckle the seatbelt.

It's another gun that I have a lot of confidence in, and it suits me much better than a black or tan plastic gun. In fact, of the 1/2 dozen or so 3rd gen Smiths I own, there's not a one of them that I don't feel comfortable carrying. (well, the 1076 on a 95į day with 75% humidity might be rough on a long day out in the field)

I carry my 469 every day in a fanny pack during the warm months. When it gets cold, it gets put away in favor of a Colt 1911 in a shoulder holster.
