went to the big funshow today,with an old ruger p90 for sale/trade .sold the ruger and bought a new walther p99 in the od military finish.it is sweet!i handeld a new g 19,the 3rd generation grip did not fit me,then i tried a beretta.the beretta was very nice but is big and heavy.then i tried the walther,it is an ergonomic masterpeice! i will get to the range tommorow and do some blasting.plan on returning to this post with a function test tommorow.if it shoots as well as it handles it will be a winner!

The P99 is perhaps the finest combat handgun in the world today... that an the Springfield XD/HS2000.

I own both and I prefer them over my Sig P226, HK USP and the Berettas I have fired.

Which calibre and price?

HR,
Huh? Perferred over your SIG and HK? I'll have to check one out at the next show.

the pistol is 9 mm , the price was 539.00 out the door,from my understanding that is a premium price,but was the best price of the show,for this model.

Congrats on the new pistol. I just ordered the 9mm in green this weekend. Davidsons has had them on 'sale' to the FFL's for a few weeks and the best I could do locally was $510 + tax which is still more than you paid in the end.

I had a very early P99 and I paid a huge premium, $589 so don't feel bad.

1Gun, its calibre, not my fault if you slum it with the bastardized spelling of caliber. Its also cheque, not check/ Got it, beotch?

just got back from the range,all i can say is wow! i have never shot an auto pistol this well.i ran 200 rounds of cci blazer 115 grn.fmj.thru the tube no failures of any kind.i just finished cleaning the pistol,and once again i say wow, that has got to be one of the simplist field strips of my experience.overall i would say that i am tickled shitless with this fine german firearm and would recomend it to anyone thinking of a nice high end pistol.
