    Officially Waltherless Now

    Well, it's official. I sold my last P99 over the weekend. So, no more P99 fanatisicsm. Sorry guys

    Its a great gun, but it didn't do it for me anymore. I hardly shot it the past 18 months. And, on my last trip, I just didn't care for it any longer.

    I had gotten brand new night sights, as I am trying to slowly get them on all my guns. And, while sighting it in, I the extra recoil the pistol has (compared to other 9mms) really is noticeable.

    I have a cheap beater pistol I shot right after I sighted in the night sights on the P99 --- A Ruger P95. The difference in recoil is like night and day.

    Admittedly, I have the Beretta bug, as I just bought my fourth 92 variant. But, after that range trip with just 30 rounds thru the P99, I had been thinking of maybe selling it. When I wanted another Beretta on Sat, I decided to put the P99 up for sale. Sold it in 24 hours. Don't regret it....

    My how things have changed. I can remember when you swore by the P99 as the best pistol on our plant. I really thought I wouldn't live to see this. What made you give up on the P99? I have always said they are a good pistol just not my style.

    Well, as said above - my interests changed. I have the Beretta bug again, and the Beretta 92 is my fav gun right now. I likely may have kept it if money was unlimited - but I wanted another Beretta and this paid for it.

    As for polymer guns, I like my HK P2000 more than the P99.

    I was about the same way with snub nose revolvers. Carried one for many years until the wife bought a 1911 and now for the last 5 or 6yrs that's my carry piece. Things due change and time never stands still. Anyways good luck with them Ship...

    Yes, things change. I've found my "fav" gun many, many times. Admittedly, I was super gun ho about the P99 in the past. But times do change. My fav gun has changed many times over the years.

    Right now, these are my favorites
