    P99

    Ok U guys. It's been at least a few days since I've sang the merits of this gun

    I know U guys like to razz me, but I love this gun. Took it to the range again today. Put 200 rounds thru it. Never a problem... I enjoy shooting it. Plan to get another eventually - a QA version this time.

    What a stand up guy! That's the only thing to do if you really feel that way 'bout your gun! P99 and you must be gettin' serious.

    Ok, so why don't you give us a complete rundown on the P99, I hear you mention it all the time but don't know much about it. Just give us everything you know.

    Tell you what guys, the P99 has become my favorite carry/shoot gun and it's done it the old fashioned way, it's earned it!
    The P99 is a Glock on steroids! It's light weight, comfortable, accurate, reliable, great pointability, double taps like lightning, reasonably priced, second strike capable, high capacity, conceals nicely, the controls are very logically laid out and easy to learn, and down right sexy! (I could have typed more, but I ran out of breath)

    The P99's are kind of like Lay's potato chips, you can't just have one!

    I agree, the P99 is a fine handgun.

    Shipwreck,

    I notice on the Walther site that they aren't featuring an SA/DA P99c - are they still available? Not that I'm in the market or anything....

    Honestly, there is no telling - They import, then stop, then import again. U'd have to call Walther USA - and even then, U may get a different answer everytime ya call...

    Even I own a P99. Everyone should. Here's a great Walther FAQ site you might enjoy: http://www.praxagora.com/lunde/WaltherP99FAQ/index.html

    Question Dumb question?

    I do not recall ever handling a P99. I've held P-38's and P-08's (Lugers), but not P-99's. So, in what calibers does the P-99 come? Anything besides 9mm?

    Only 9mm and 40 cal... S&W makes a SW99 in .45 - their clone of the P99.
