    Why I love my Walther P99!

    Went to the range today - several good targets. But, I was really impressed with this one. After I did that with 3, I wanted to save it before I inevitably screwed it up

    Are you trying to say that the rest of the magazine missed the target?

    Nice shooting, Shipwreck.

    Haha, no. This was my 2nd target of the day. All my other targets had the rounds staying within the white part (that's just a sheet of paper - 8.5"x11").

    But when 3 in a row did that on my 2nd mag on a fresh target, I wanted to keep that sucker

    You print your own targets? I have a few that I print out (I have an old laserjet), but am always looking for others. Would you care to send me the file if that's the case?

    PM me your e-mail and I'll send it to you. I only use these targets. It's much easier than aiming at a black circle.

    Ship,

    What happened to the powder burn? Did you airbrush it away?

    I had already cleaned the gun before I took the photo at home.

    I don't carry a camera around with me at the range

    Yes, 9mm> i have fired one in 40 - and I did not like it.

    Only 40 cal gun I like is the PX4 Beretta.

    I have a .40 QPQ, in fact I think you are the one who recommended using a little Flitz to clean a spot I had on it. I like my .40 but I like the 9mm better, I wont sell my QPQ because it is like new I know it has well under 1k rds down it and it was my first gun. No I am looking for a 9mm with the QPQ finish but I can't seem to find one. Do you know if many exist and maybe where I could find one? THanks man.

    I guess I could always HC it but I hear that its not as tuff and I like the dull finish.

    Good luck...

    As for hard chrome not being as tough as QPQ? You are kidding, right?

    Hard chrome is about the toughest finish there is for wear.

    NP3 is the toughest for rust, however.

    Well, I don't remember where I heard that but I guess they were mistaken. I do like the look of your 99 with the HC, how does it hold up to carry? Have you had a damage to your HC finish?

    Been carrying my P99c for 3 years now - not a mark on it. Typically - only metal scratching it will mark it.

    Hard chrome is rust resistant, but not as much as other finishes.

    You have to decide - NP3 is the best against rusting, but is softer and will wear in a holster. The hard chrome is about the hardest aftermarket finish you can get, but there are some of the polymer finishes that resist rust better.

    Come on Ship'... 5 or more holes, or it doesn't count!!! The magazine articles throw out the worst two as "fliers"... ie they suck at shooting!

    What's the November shooting contest anyway? Hopefully not turkey feathers again!
