The scale shows the 469 at just over 1 pound 10 ounces and the 5906 at 2 pounds 6 ounces. Those are very close to the published weights for the two models.

From YOUR own chart!
Smith & Wesson 5906 only D/A measured 6 pounds 2 ounces
Smith & Wesson 469 only D/A measured 7 pounds 13 ounces.

1 gallon water 8 pounds 8 ounces

Beginning to look like some serious "operator error, or a very faulty tool!

But despite all the obvious trigger pull weight errors, slide hold open, and second strike aren't even worth mentioning.
Slide hold open, in a self defense pocket gun for civilian use. For what. You're not going to be getting into an extended gun battle. If you do with any pocket pistol chances are you will be gone before you even need a reload. Pure Mall Ninja stuff.

Second strike, again pure Mall Ninja. Unless you handload with the same diligence as you are using that trigger pull guage, when's the last time you had a round fail to fire on the first try?
Let's see, from my experience excluding rimfire.
My handloads....never
Various brands of range ammo......never
Quality self defense ammo......never
