      Dog on it - too high....

      Well, I came across both a 9mm and 40 cal P99 A/S at Collector's Firearms in Houston - the store that likes to rip you off on their prices.

      Both were $659 new. A/S models with the new, longer mag release. The 9mm version had a few scratches on it too.

      No way I can justify paying that cost, especially for one that has scratches on it - the .40 version looked mint (no marks), but that's still too high.

      And, believe it or not - they have a used, old frame P99 in green for $620 - NO box/sights/grips etc. Ridiculous!

      Oh well; I'll keep looking...

      Give them a card with your name, phone number and an offer for the one you want on it, and forget about it... You never know!

      Shipwreck,
      Where is Collector's Firearms in Houston? When I visit I will be sure and not go out of my way to see what they have. If I'm close, I'll stop by but otherwise, nope. I like Hal8000's method; let them decide.

      ON the corner of Foundren and Richmond - Basically, just south of Westheimer.

      U can spend an hour there looking - they pretty much have at least 1 of EVERYTHING. BUt they are way, way too high.

      Actually, this P99 was cheap for them. Last year I called them, I called them, and they wanted like $709 for one.

      I wasn't looking for that - they probably would have had a 10mm Kimber, seeing as they had everything else...
