Looks a lot like my BB pistol. My only semi. Prefer revolvers. But this thing is fun and cheap.Many of you probably don't know that in my younger days I was a cop for a local city department. It was a small department of around 40 officers so several of us wore many hats.
I was the dept's firearms instructor, gunsmith ("armorer" to those in law enforcement), hostage negotiator and community relations officer.
When I first started the armorer work we carried S&W Model 19's (.357). I talked the chief into looking at semi auto pistols and also into paying for me to attend the 2 week S&W Armorer's School in Springfield, MA.
While there I ordered a 4006 (.40 S&W) from the Performance Center and had it shipped to me at the dept. I put about 1,000 rounds through it before deciding it was too much gun for the average cop to carry. I then ordered a 6906 (9mm) and shot it for awhile before deciding it was a much better carry gun.

I still have the 4006 and the 6906 but I'm going to give both to my son when they visit next week.
I liked shooting the 4006, but I also liked shooting the .44 Mag Smiths. On a side note, at one time I had all the different barrel lengths in the .44's in both blue and stainless.
Another side note, I still get to the indoor range about every 1.5 months and shoot the devil out of my Springfield Hellcat. It's a nice gun to shoot and to carry.
