    Hooked another 1

    I taught someone to shoot today for her first time. We rented an M&P, and I brought my USPc and P99. The M&P was okay - but the damn gun kept throwing brass directly in your face. It went behind her protective glasses 2x in fact. I shot CCI Blazer thru it myself, and with the lighter casing - it at least only got me in the neck and jaw everytime.

    But, we progressed to the USPc, and finally to the P99 A/S - The P99 was the winner. BIG difference in her shooting between the P99 and the other two. I asked about her renting an XD or other guns - she didn't even want to bother...

    She is going to have our shop order her one tomorrow. Sold another one!

    Ship, I looked into ordering a P99c but the place I went told me they could only get the QA version. What gives? Do you have any idea why that may be?

    It all depends on what the distributor has that your shop orders from.

    My shop deals with many, and I was lucky enough last year that they tracked me one down.

    If she has no luck, I told her that she can either try a Houston gunshow, or get one off the internet.

    Try Bud's - Many people here ordered A/S models from them recently.

    You beat me to it. I feel the pain, I'm a huge Sig fanboy, but even I must have one of the P99s.

    SW, for IDPA and IPSC, what trigger configuration would be most advantageous?

    Well, the A/S would have the 1st shot being heavier, but after that - the SA trigger is really where the gun shines.

    I have only dry fired QA P99s several times - I've never had the opportunity to shoot 1 - As I find the trigger too heavy.

    So, I guess the A/S
