I was always a faithful glock owner, G19, G17, G26 but after trying out this guy's Walther P99, I realized what I've been missing!! What a sweet trigger! Double taps are a dream. And my shots at 25 yds were tight!! With glocks, I'd be lucky to get a 5" group. I'll be getting rid of my glocks soon (except that little G26 =) But true to my love of glocks, I am looking for... 9mm Dead reliablity. Accuracy. But with better trigger (DA/SA) I think Walther P99 fits the bill, what do you think? Anything else I should check out?

Browning High Power. If you truly are into DA/SA I'd get a Sig P228 or P239.

Glock 36. There really is no substitute.

Glocks are easy to shoot bad, but there also easy to shoot pretty good. ya know what i mean? now i want to try a walther.

All time favorite accurate 9mm Pistols: #3 = Sig 226 #2 = Browning High Power #1 = HK P7M13 The M13 is a bit pricey, but the most accurate 9mm Pistol I have ever owned (I have/had G17, G17, Berretta Elite, HK's, Sig 226). Best of luck!

Hmm, glockmeister? Do you have it on yours? Does it effect reliability at all?

I have both the P99 and the Glock. I like both. The great thing about the P99 is that I do not have to get a grip reduction.

Sig 226 all the way. [pistol]

My next pistol was going to be the 35, but I have been looking at the Walthers as well. I'd be interested in hearing more about them.

I like my Kimber Classic. I like to try everything though. That Walther sounds good. Maybe my all time favorite is the old Euro HK P7 with mag release at bottom of grip. Might go back to that some day. The HK USP is sweet too. So much candy and only two hands!

H&K USP Tactical - match trigger, adjustable trigger stop, extended, threaded barrel w/O-ring for positive slide lock up. Accurate, eats anyhing (in .45, that is) and is well made. [heavy][USA]

Any Sig for me. BHP next. Have yet to shoot a Glock. I'm holding out as long as I can. Stay safe.

I'm with HIGHPOWER and MDS, get yourself a SIG.

I have shot a Glock 17 with the light trigger and did very well with it, almost as good as my Sig P228. But the one thing that bothers me more about the Glocks than anything else is no second shoot capability, I just can't get past that. Also the grip doesn't feel quite right in my hand. However, with the Sig P228 it fits perfectly in my hand and for a full size pistol it's shape and balance is near perfect. I also like that it has a good D/A first pull, great S/A pull, metal frame and no safety to worry about. The only down side is that it has a "funny" reset for follow up shots. The only pistol that came close to replacing my Sig was the CZ75 in .40cal, it had a slightly better trigger and was a tad thinner. It also had a more "swept back" type grip which gave a better natural point of aim. Someday I might buy a CZ75, but I will never give up my Sig P228[:)].

I've always been fond of berettas.

Walther P99 is the sleeper gun of the new millenia. 16rd mags + 1 in throat = 17 smiles. Glocks dream every night that they look this good. Very accurate and feels like pretty girls butt in my hand.

Best toy guns: #1 H&K USP #2 P-99 #3 HS200 Best mil. guns: #1 1911(all) #2 M-9 #3 H&K I like the M-9 but you got'a love how H&K can be both[:)]

Sig 226, I'll say it again, Sig 226

I just dumped a P99 it was intriging but it jamed, just like the ppk I once owned. Groups I shot were not impressive, only one size big. Try and find Hi caps. I'll keep my Glocks, Sigs and 1911s . A fool and his Glocks soon part.

I just handled a Walther P22 (mini-P99 in .22 LR) today. It's sweet! The only flaw is that it has a magazine "safety". [rolleyes]

9mm Dead reliablity. Accuracy. But with better trigger (DA/SA) If your looking for one hole accuracy and butter smooth SA/DA out of the box, check out a 6" 586(blue)686(stainless) S&W 357. Plenty of excellent used ones out there. More versatile than any auto if you handload. If six 357's wont solve your problem........
