    I like the P99

    I like it but I've only been to the range once so far. I'll be going again tomorrow and maybe Sunday also. The trigger is going to take some time to get used to but so far I like it. It is much different than SA pull. Like I mentioned earlier it is a short crisp pull, no slack. It didn't feel all that heavy to me but I haven't fired any other "QA" style guns lately either. It will take a couple of hundred more rounds down range to get a real feel for the trigger and the gun as a whole. I primarily shoot my PX4 in SA mode with very little practice in DA mode. I can shoot very accurate in DA with a slow controlled trigger pull but not as accurate in a quick shot type situation. It is like anything else practice makes you better and more comfortable. I like the way the P99 feels and looks and the accuracy will come with practice.

    As for the accuracy . . . I have not owned any other pistol that I can group with like my 99's. I bought one about five years ago, took it to the range and put a ten round mag into a 2"x2" square ar fifteen yards and was from then on hooked. First ten rounds I ever shot out of it, with no other experience with the P99. I fell in love . . . and with practice the groups only got better.

    I had very nice groupings with the P99 but I was shooting a little left. I think once I get used to the trigger pull I'll be very accurate with it. I anticipate the pull and have a tendency to flinch at times. This happens very rarely with the PX4 because I have put 1200 plus rounds thru it and I am very comfortable with the trigger. I am sure the next range session will be much better not that the first was bad.

    I had to make a minor adjustment to my compact P99's rear sight and to my SW99 (my fullsize P99 was dead on out of the box). So, it is possible U may need to adjust the rear sight. What is so nice is that the user can adjust the rear sight and change out the front sight w/o having to go to a smith...

    SW Thanks

    Thanks for the advice. I think it is me not the gun. When I first shot the PX4 I shot left and a little low. The second range session with the PX4 was much better with very good grouping at where I was aiming. If I conclude it is the sights I'm sure I'll be asking for your assistance because you da man.

    In terms of the AS vs QA... JMO but if you prefer to have a QA for tourney, range/practice and or home defense... i don't see how having an AS would be any different... after you rack the slide about 3/8" you have already cocked the striker and placed the AS trigger in SA... which to my understanding... is the very same as a quick action pistol...

    however for added saftey around "prying" hands or holstering... you have the decocker button to place in a heavy DA trigger pull... so that any shot is therefore "intentional" (hopefully)

    but if you need it back to QA just pull the slide again...
