I'm new here, too. So it's really not on me to welcome you, I guess, but welcome anyway.
I wanted to respond to you because you mention the "bashing" people always do on the PT92. I have a PT99 (same gun, just adjustable sight). I can't say it's my favorite gun, or even in the top 5, but I do like it. It's very accurate and fairly reliable (mine is a little picky about what hollows I use). The finish seems to wear relatively easily (compared to other guns I have with similar finishes). My only real complaint is a personal one: the fat grip doesn't fit my smallish hands very well.
As you know by now, no matter how nice something is, you will find people on line that put it down and call it junk. If they can't find anything else bad to say, they say it's overpriced or ugly.
