Future congrats on the new P99!
Went in to the local shop on Sunday and $700 later, I've got a P99 A/S heading my way.
What sucks is that they're not going to process the 10-day wait until the gun arrives at the shop...I don't quite understand why the two things can't be happening concurrently.
Future congrats on the new P99!
you must be in california......
great gun..i just purchased the exact same walther pistol in january 07..
And now I must call and yell...for I got a message on my phone last night saying, "The note from Evan (the owner) says P99 Quick Anti-Stress, but they only have Quick Action and Anti Stress, so I ordered you the Quick Action...should be in on Wednesday."
Now, I called this woman yesterday afternoon (prior to this message) and specifically said that I wanted to make sure they were ordering me the Anti-Stress.
get the AS all the way..
it shoots like a beauty! gl
Dood, do you know where your shop is ordering it from?
I don't recall from where they were ordering it...I did talk to them about 3 times today to make sure that every person in that shop knew that I wanted the A/S, not the Q/A.
Yes, we Californians get nailed hard in the firearms arena. I am just setting up my first out of state transfer now and they make it a real pain the 6 O'clock. It's like they don't want me to buy the gun even though I will shoot it at their range AND buy ammo from them. Worse, it's not like I didn't already ask them to stock the guns I'm buying. They said they weren't available anymore so i found them myself.
Dood, what is the status of your P99AS?
how long has it been since u first paid for it?
i hate that..having to wait..esp after u paid for it upfront..
but hopefully it won't take much longer..
I figure they ordered the wrong one, and then waited for the return to go through before ordering the right one.
That's why I'm willing to wait until Wednesday before I follow-up again.
Wait till he finds out he has to wait 10 days from the time the shop gets the gun for his waiting period and that's business days. I feel for you Dood. I hope I am wrong. Good luck.
hope he's a patient man...
i got my hk usp .40 today....ordered on monday...very good service, and fast.
sometimes you just have to take your chances on some of these dealers and hope for the best....my first purchase on the net took over 2 week!!
so..dood....hang in there.
Let us know.
I spoke with the store briefly on the phone on Wednesday, but I had to work late and was incredibly busy, so I didn't find out much beyond them insisting that they'll call me when they get it.
Thursday was another long work day, today I'm off (I work 4-10s) so I'm heading down to the shop personally today to find out what the hell is going on, and if I don't like the answer, then they can just refund me the money.
This is crap.
Amazing what happens when you show up in person and demand to speak to the owner.
Gun is there. They've actually been running the background and my 10 days wraps up tomorrow, so I can pick the thing up after 2 pm.
So, pleasant surprise, but I explained to the owner that it would have been nice if someone had told me that the gun was there while they were running the check before.
