Thanks gang. Hard choice between this and an H&K USP 9mm.
You're welcome. I have limited experience with the USP in 9mm but that experience has been fairly positive. Height and width are similar but the USP is a little longer than the P99 and maybe five ounces heavier. That, lack of a manual safety, plus the features I discussed previously make the P99 a better carry gun in my opinion.

I seem to recall a little less felt recoil in the USP but that's not much of an issue with 9mm. I definitely prefer the P99 trigger to the stock USP trigger. (There are upgrades available for the USP but I haven't tried them.)

HKs online are famous.

HKs in the hand leave a lot to be desired for a trigger.

My P99c definitely had a better trigger than my USP, but ones a striker, and ones da/sa. Still my USP's trigger was good out if the box.
Flicks just like a lighter, just a different kind of fire.

Had one for a while . . .

I had one for a while. First time at the range one of the plastic white "dots" jumped out of the sight and was gone forever. Then a series of light strikes, FTF and FTE caused me sell if off. I think it was ammo finicky.

Maybe I had a lemon. Won't be buying one again to find out.

Life is good.

That's highly unusual for a P99.

They have a reputation for being able to digest just about anything in the proper caliber.

I have 2 first gen. Walther P99's one in 9 and one in 40 and I like them both very much and it's the gun I usually carry.
