Walther P99 9mm 4IN 15R BL
[WAP77010]
$569.00
by mike d Date Added: Friday 31 December, 2010
This is an amazing price for an amazing weapon. Bud's Gun Shop sold it to me for $560 and that is $200 dollars less than I could find it anywhere else. I am a southpaw and not only does the Walther feeling tailored for my hand but the ambidextrous slide release is a flawless design. The P99 is so well designed that you can literally "Pick out a target or aim point close your eyes then bring the weapon up. Then, open your eyes and your sights will be center mass on the target." I am a former US Marine and this is my favorite sidearm of all. I would recommend to anyone who is looking at a P99 to educate themselves on the AS and DAO models. I found I prefer the AS model. To break it down "Barney Style" or in simplest terms; the DAO is Double Action Only where as the AS or Anti-Stress is double action, single action, and anti-stress. Anti-stress means the first shot is double action (resulting in a harder and longer trigger pull) and every round fired after that is in single action mode (resulting in a shorter and lighter trigger pull.) Other food for thought, I prefer 9mm vs. 40caliber because you get three extra round. With 9mm high-quality hollow points a torso hit has a 95% chance of taking a "life threatening object" down and so does a 40cal or a 45. However, target ammunition prizes between the three vary greatly.

The ONLY problem I have with this weapon and so many other modern sidearms is that no true safety is included in the nomenclature of the design. I cannot fathom why anyone would not want a safety. If you are one of the people out there that walk around with a "condition one" weapon (round in the chamber and the safety is off/just pull the trigger to send a round down range) then you should reevaluate why you are carrying a weapon to begin with. It is not safe and you become a threat to yourself and those around you and endanger the very people you sought to protect in the first place. The chances are so minuscule of you ever needing to draw your sidearm in civilian life that in the event of that once in a lifetime circumstance ever happening only a fool would endanger everyone else by walking around with a chambered weapon. You will have plenty of time/opportunity to rack your slide if you are ever in that situation. I digress...........................................

Shoot this weapon once and it will grow quick on you. The first week I had the weapon I took it to the range twice I let four other people shoot it. Three of the four have bought this sidearm and the other plans too. That is probably the best testimonial I can give you.
GOD bless
