    Finally

    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.

    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.

    Good Choice

    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.
