    Well the Idea here was a smaller,lighter BUG than my PPH. I have specifically clung to the PP design because it CAN be cocked and fired S/A unlike most of the new "wonder guns" that usually make me ill just to look at them,I cant understand people that diss "old" model firearms for the new shake n bake crap just because its old when MOST of the older models did/do things the new stuff just cant or wont?? Ya always get the snot noses saying "there's no place for that in the modern world anymore" when they know not of what they speak. Especially those who seem to find operating an external safety so difficult they wont buy a gun unless it has none.

    While i was at the range that i tried out a P99, i also tried a friend's Cobra .380. i wasn't too impressed. first thing was considering it's size (smaller), it was significantly heavier than the P99. must have been the chrome.

    then instead of the slide release, you have to manually cock it, UGH!
    if you don't hold it JUST right... the slide will hit you when it recoils... especially if you have larger hands.

    the mag release was difficult, there is a small clip that slides over the end of the mag, and it has a VERY strong spring in there (why i don't know)
    so on top of holding this very tough spring back you have to use your fingernails to literally pick the mag out of the well... (really tight fit i guess...)

    so if shooting older weapons leaves a memory like this i simply will not be doing it too often...

    BTW the mag capacity was 5+1... so what ever you aim at ya better make sure you hit it, because by the time you reload (assuming you have more than 1 mag) you might not be alive anymore... lol
