    Not sure - Don't have my manual (it is locked up in my safe deposit box - my insurance company told me that if it was stolen, I must have both a receipt AND the manual to prove I owned it). I think if U go to the Walther site, U can download the manual in a PDF file. It may say it there.

    Thanks Ship. Already searched the manual and it does not mention +P at all. Maybe that's a hint.

    I think it was discussed on the Walther Forum site, and someone found out that it was okay on the fullsize - of course, all companies typically say that the use of +p and +p+ ammo "accelerates the wear" of a firearm. Pretty much all gun companies say this.

    But, I don't know about the compact P99.

    I would try searching for local dealers here: http://www.waltheramerica.com/dealers.cfm This model can be hard to find, but a dealer should be able to order one for you.

    My local dealer deals with several distributors. He was able to track me one down last year. And, he found me the fullsize one this past year.

    I saw many P99s at the big Houston gunshow this past Sat, and some were compacts. Unfortunately, they were all QAs.

    See if U can talk to a local shop who is willing to go outside of their typical distribtor. Maybe they can find ya one.

    I never found a 100% answer, but on the Walther forum someone apparently asked the factory and was told no to +P..

    On the other hand, I ran about 40 rounds Black Hills +P through the P99c and the thing didn't blow up on me or anything..

    I'm just used to carrying a 1911, and the thought of a 9mm kind of leaves me feeling a little under gunned. Don't want to go with the .40 S&W. I could always practice with the standard load and just use the +P for a defensive load. Kind nervous doing this though.

    Looking for something smaller/lighter than my 1911. Maybe the 4" XD45 will do, but I am liking the P99 a lot - especially the AS trigger.

    Walther P-99 AS

    I'm a gun dealer in Arizona. I just checked my dealer's inventory and I can find a few of the P-99C AS in 9 mm also they have the P-99 AS in both 9mm and in .40 cal. If someone wants one, I would have to ship it to your FFL. Your cost would be:
    P-99C AS 9mm @$576.00
    P-99 AS 9mm 4" w/ 15 rd mags@$606.00
    P-99 AS .40 4" w/12 rd mags@$576.00

    These prices include shipping to the lower 48 states. Payment would be made by US postal money order, I will receive the gun 24 hours after I order it.

    Handgun transfer in Arizona usually runs $25.00, I don't know what your FFL
    will charge you.
