    I know what you mean about the 4006. My agency issued the 4046, the DAO version of the 4006. I carried that from 1991 when we transitioned from revolvers to pistols. I carried it until 2005 when we went with the SW99. We carried that until 2008 when we went with the M&P. The Smith 3rd generation pistols are good shooting guns. I take mine out of the safe from time to time and it is like shaking hands with an old friend.

    That thing's wild! Looks like something out of some "not too distant" future movie!

    I never really kept up much with nontraditional firearm designs.

    Some of the more modern designs are interesting, especially when it comes to the 'little black rifle'. Yet I tend to loose interest in most civilian firearms made after WWII and military firearms post Vietnam. Lots and lots of people out there are really into futuristic looking firearms, but they aren't my cup o' joe.

    I waited 30 years to buy a GLOCK , I just couldnt buy a plastic pistol , after owning several polymer framed guns, I like modern guns, they just function so well and take any type of ammo

    back in the 80's the first time I held a Glock it felt like a toy because of the lightweight plastic frame & magazines, and the tiny lugs on the frame for the slide rails, it just didnt seem like it would last.

    I use to only like M1911's & old school all steel guns

    I tend to prefer older firearms. I have a soft spot for the Browning Hi Power, for example. But I couldn’t resist the AUG - a civilian version of my old service rifle (the F88C).

    Have never owned a Glock never intend to.

    Agree in re 'plastic' guns. I do have a couple modern sidearms I carry, but have never really cared for pistols. I do like pistols from the late Victorian period through WWI - that's my one regret when it comes to collecting old firearms, I didn't get any of those pistols back when I was younger and the prices were more reasonable.

    Whenever I think about modern pistols I always think back to a couple of criminal forensic classes I took. In both classes the teachers pointed out that that's where most modern shooters mess up if they intend to discharge a pistol during a crime, and speed is essential - casings. The ejected casings tend to lead to the apprehension of the person - revolvers on the other hand...

    Understandable. That's one reason I have an AR-15.

    Thanks. Had specific years and condition I was looking for. Took me decades of searching to come up with the pair.

    I was watching a real life crime show on TV. The detective lamented that too many criminals were watching police procedural shows and learning to pick up their casings before fleeing the scene.
