I was so sure my wife would understand this purchase. She was so happy when I recently sold off four older rifles, then she makes nasty faces when I buy another little pistol.
This nice little S&W 469 is being sold by a retired LEO my local gun guy is friends with. I always liked the all metal S&W semi-autos, never did take to their striker fired polymer jobs though. This 469 is one of the few that came with a hammer spur. I have a well worn 459 service pistol that always makes me smile and this compact version will make for a nice carry pistol.
Not too shabby looking for an older service pistol.
I hope its siblings won't become jealous.
