      I used to load my own on a Dillon. But I have been short on time the last several years, so I just feed my pistols WWB for training and high quality HPs for defense.

      Between spacedoggy & Shipwreck's ravings about the Walther P99 I had to check one out. Went to a local gun store and fondled the M & P, the XD, and then the P99. Wow! That P99 really felt good! It's about $80.00 higher than the M & P and about $100.00 higher than the XD but it's definately back in the race. Glad I've got some time to think this over.

      Did U try the A/S or the QA?

      If it is the QA trigger, ask if you can dry fire it. I'm not that big of a fan of it. But the A/S trigger rocks

      I fondled the P99 Fullsize and felt the trigger which seemed very gritty. Don't know about the A/S though. 8)

      Well, the trigger on the A/S smoothes out after 500 rounds or so.

      I knew this ahead of time - but when I bought my SW99 (the P99 clone) at a gun show last year, I looked at it in the car after the show. I dry fired it and felt the trigger "catch" slightly at 1 point. I was pissed that I hadn't seen this when I was in the show. I figured I'd have to call S&W the following Monday.

      Well, I tried dry firing it a few times, to see if it would smooth out at all. 30 pulls later, it was fine

      Well, I'll be the weirdo here with wanting a wheel gun. Don't know if it will be my next purchase or not but I'm drooling over a S & W 625 in .45 Colt with a three inch barrel. Not very many of them around so it may be a while and I may have to get something in the interim.

      What's a S/A?

      I was holding the QA, I think. They didn't have a compact. I went to Walther America web site & didn't see anything about a A/S. What is a A/S?
      I did get to dry fire it. Trigger pull seemed ok but I'm used to shooting my Sigma. After that anything seems wonderful. I like everything about the Sigma except the trigger pull.

      The A/S is the "anti-stress" trigger - it is SA/DA - but it also has a long SA pull for the 1st shot if you don't want the heavy DA for the first pull.

      The A/S stopped being imported last year, although there are still some floating around new, but are old stock.

      Rumor has it that they will be importing them again this year after everyone complained.

      The QA trigger is kinda like the Glock trigger - the same pull on every shot - No DA/SA.

      Done!

      Sorry to make you guys jealous, but I called my usual dealer, and as luck would have it, he had one!

      AG date code, NIB.. so that's what? 2006? It would seem that some AS triggers are making it to the states...

      It has the long style mag release like the new QAs I've seen around.

      I asked my dealer about whether or not he knew anything about the AS being discontinued or not, and all he knew was that P99's are so hard to come by for him he snags one whenever he can.

      Thanks - the siblings are getting aqquainted now -

      I guess this bodes well for you and any others hoping for the AS to make a comeback - AS, Made in Germany, German proofmarks, S&W importer markings, made in '06. Maybe S&W is just importing a few at a time, and feeling it out.. Or maybe they just need to update the Walther web site.

      Yea, I'ms till waiting for mine to come in - I'll know it when I see it :P

      Unfortunately, I'll have to sell my fullsize USP to buy one, because of "the wife."

      I like mt compact USP too much to be rid of it. I actually like all my guns, but if I have to loose one, it would have to be the fullsize USP

      Well, I bought my 627SS4 a couple weeks back, and at the end of last week I impulse-bought a HiPoint 995 and an ATI stock. So to redo my list:

      RIA1911
      96FS Brigadier Inox (damn you whoever posted that pic in these very forums. Damn you all to heck)
      44Tracker4SS

      After that I think i'm done with handguns. Then on to another shotgun (Saiga-12) and rifles. The only 'rifle' I have is the carbine. So very sad.

      The PF-9 was gonna be my next firearms purchase too.. Until "Wilson" and the KelTec unofficial PF-9 beta testers found so many flaws in the first batch..

      I'm a big KelTec fan. I have a P32 & P11. I was all set for the PF-9, but now I'm gonna wait 6mo to a year until KT gets 'em right. (As I'm sure they will).

      I'm not a gunsmith, and I prefer my firearms to work properly right out of the box.. I'm just not convinced the PF-9 is ready for prime time ... Cracked frames/slides/premature hammer wear/rear sight screws too long, ect. just scare the crap out of me in a pistol I plan to cc and defend myself & family with.

      I'm not a KelTec basher by any means. I just wish they had kept the PF-9 "in house" for testing a bit longer rather than let a few bad ones hit the consumer market.

      In fact (primarily to "Shipwrecks" glowing praise of the P99), I just ordered a new Walther P99c/AS with the money (+additional money) I had planned to contribute to KelTec for a PF-9.

      Perhaps the P99c/AS will be good enough I won't need a PF-9? Ah, makes no difference, I'll still probably one sooner or later anyway.

      Best Wishes,

      J. Pomeroy

      Well, I've shot the current version of the Keltec 9mm. I met someone at the range with one. He let me put 3 mags thru it, but after 2, I had had enough. Its about the same size as a Glock 26 or my P99c give or take a tiny bit. But good god, does that thing have snap. Not sure why, when coparing the size to the 2 other guns. But as much as I like my P32 from Keltec, I wouldn't want a 9mm from them....

      Based on the election results, I think I better go ahead and buy that AR I've been putting off. Plus mags and lots of ammo.
