Walther P99 or FN FNP-9?
Fit/finish, accuracy, reliability, value and overall quality which is the better pistol? New the Walther is about $120 more. Im torn between these two. I prefer the styling of the Walther but love that the FN is made in the USA. What do you guys think?
get the walther
but i am waiting on the PPS
The FNP is a great, great value. High quality firearm for an exceptionally low price. If the styling on the Walther is worth the extra cash, get the Walther.
I am picking up a FNP, since they seem to have a very great rep for accuracy and reliability.

But everyone else here knows I am a P99 fanatic.
If it is the P99 A/S model (be aware of the different triggers) - I'd get the P99 in a heartbeat.
There isn't anything wrong with the FNP. The quality is not any less.
It's just that the P99 is awesome. I can't explain it, but I gave up trying to find another gun that I can shoot as well as my P99. When I buy new guns now, they are for my "collection." After trying for so long, I know I won't find any other gun that I can shoot as well as that P99. It's really strange. But for me, that is "the gun."
Get a SW99. It's cheaper than the P99, and half made in the USA.:smt023

You can pick a new one up cheaper than the Walther.
And: My buddy has an SW99 and when he and I shot them head to head the accuracy was the same... (Extremely good).
It's not a Walther...
That's why I have the P99c/AS & P99/AS...
You won't go wrong with the SW99, but if you decide on the Walther be sure and consider the "AS" (DA/SA) model.
Just options and personal opinions.
The SW99 just isn't as cool looking. It may not matter to you, but it does to me. Get the Walther.

I had a SW99 and a P99 - the SW99 was not as accurate when shot head to head. Not much difference, but a little. I actually had the SW99 first.
