I FINALLY got my P99.
Only took 5 months, 4 different dealers, and switching to the .40S&W to get it.
Apparently, right now if the dealer doesn't have the AS in 9mm in the store when you try to get it, you're going to end up on a waiting list for a LOOOOOOOOONG time.
After striking out with dealer after dealer and being put on 4 different waiting lists I found a guy with a .40S&W P99AS to try out, and I liked it, so I changed my order to the .40 and the gun arrived the next day to start the DROS process (seemed a bit silly...been waiting almost 5 months, but I had to wait another 10 days still).
I'll post my first range report when I finally get to take it out for a spin.
Congrats! Lucked out at a gun show a few weeks ago and found a 9mm P99AS and love it so far. Good luck on your first trip to the range
Yea congrats great gun. Iam in the same bag I am in CA. There is a big shortage on them. but iam going to wait it out for the AS 9mm anyone have any good ideas of getting one faster.
Can't under why they will not up production on them as they have a winner. Oh well good luck with yours there Mr.Dood and we will be looking foward to your range report.
Didn't get a chance to take pictures of the targets yet, but finally took the gun for a spin this past weekend.
Went through about 200 rounds, which was more with the .40 than I had shot before. The gun is just a joy to fire. Not too snappy, very accurate. The only problem I really had was that my trigger finger seemed to be rubbing against the bottom of the trigger guard, so I adjusted my grip a bit, which took a while to get used to. Even so, with the exception of the occasional errant shot, most of my groupings were relatively tight at 15 yards (usually about 5 or 6 inches).
I think I'm going to have to experiment with the other backstraps to see if I can get a slightly better grip, but overall I couldn't be any happier. I'm looking forward to taking it to the range again this coming weekend.
It makes me happy to see a happy gun owner. Good luck with your new pistol.
I have the very same gun and have been very content with the .40 S&W. Now if I ever could find a P99c A/S I'd probably get a 9mm. Then again, if I can ever find one I'll probably get it regardless.
