He sure likes the trigger on it which looks to me much like HK LEM with shorter take up. It is certainly very high on my list to check out for someone that wants a pistol in the $350 range. I bet the Creed will be a big seller for Walther.

Back to it; comparing the P99c (though you said P99 and MR9) to a PPX/Creed is sorta like comparing a Ranger to a Super Duty....

Can I have one of each?

Gotta snag me a P99 and a Creed and PPX and P88 and P5 and P1 and....and...a winning lottery ticket first!

HA! The Creed is a cosmetically redesigned PPX, because the PPX was considered ugly!

I agree with the "gun is a tool" sentiment. Though I love the looks of some guns. And I never, ever, make fun of pink guns. I don't like them, but if I make fun of people who like pink guns I have to fess up that I really, really like the way my Ruger Mark II Bull Barrel looks...

Life is too short to own ugly guns, even one intended solely to be a 'tool'

To each their own. But, a fugly gun that is impeccably reliable, accurate as a dream, and carries perfectly would still be my choice over a beautiful gun that was good at each of those things but not great.

Gimme ugly that works....bad guys and targets won't stop their crime to suddenly say "oh my, what a pretty gun, I'll just stop breaking the law now".....
This left me wondering if you choose your female companionship like you choose your firearms.

Thankfully, with so many choices, it's not an either/or decision. You actually can buy a beautiful gun that is reliable, accurate, carries well, etc (unless it's a Hi Point, where the only thing beautiful about it is the value-to-price ratio) ... so why would you even consider an ugly gun?

Surreal

P.S. Price is the usual reason, by the way...

Overall it was a decent review, but if that's his idea of a good trigger, he likes a lot of things I don't.

Well, to be fair, he thinks Glocks have great triggers.

No accounting for taste, I guess.

I have one Glock. I like it for what it is, too. (It was my original carry gun.) Would I say it has a 'good trigger'? No. Hell no. Like my PPS, it has a trigger I deem acceptable for carry. That's about as much credit as I can give it...
