I used to be known as the super, crazy Pro P99 guy on many, many gun forums on the net.. I've gotten at least 14 people to buy one.
But. I sold my last one last Spring, and likely will not buy another.
If the textured grip portion was rubber, I'll admit that I'd be tempted to scoop up another. But, more than likely, it has the texture similar to the HK P30.
But, if Walther wants to keep selling the P99, it's about time they started importing some version of the newer P99 designs being sold in Europe exclusively. So, this is a natural progression, IMHO. The original P99 has been around since 1998.
Had they imported the gun on their own instead of relying on other 3rd party companies, I think the gun would be more popular. Everyone at the Walther Forum has talked on this subject for years. S&W/Walther USA has done a terrible job marketing the gun.
It is one of the most accurate polymer 9mms I have ever shot. I scored a perfect score for the first time on my last shooting re-qualification for my CHL, and I used a P99 that time.
