View Full Version : Where did all the SJPD S&W 3906s go?

From what I've read the San Jose PD issued Smith and Wesson 3906s in the late 80's and early 90's.

Now that their current issue is a .40, I'm wondering what happened to all the 3906's.

It seems this would be a good source for a desirable and rare gun.

Any thoughts?

If the dept is as anti-gun as they were in the 80's, then they probably had them destroyed.

That would be a shame.

Those 3906s are great guns, and I would love to find one.

But, since the reason they were issued was because they didn't want officers carrying hi-cap. guns, I would not be shocked if they were melted.......

Not a SJPD 3906.....
But, I'm glad I bought my S&W 3906 at Old Sacramento Armory before they closed.
