Never had anything go wrong with this P99. I just don't like the 40 round it's to snappy for me. I had it in a compact XD also and got the compact 9 and sold the 40. I do have the 40 in the CX4 which is great. But when it's in a pistol I can't hit a thing with it. I wish I could, I would feel much better carrying the 40 than the 9. Soon I'm going to get that small Para LDA CARRY in 45ACP. I had one and sold it the first time I took it to the range. Well he was there last night doing some night shooting. He let me shoot a 100 of my reloads through it and I wish I never sold it. If I had the cash I would get one right this minute, hell I would drive 12 hours to get one. Once I have one my P99 C becomes my backup.
