Well....?

Probably not given the high cost, blued finish and not a lot of reasonable ads for them.

You can buy two new P99's of any flavor for the cost of one P88. Maybe not from Earl mind you.

Another P5 is next on the list for me.

I haven't gotten one yet but I want one,I always have my eyes out for a P88 or P88C, now that I have the P5, P5C and HK P7 I want to round out the collection of expensive (overpriced??) all metal handguns.

Investing in a P88 will give you a better return than any stock could over the short term.

I picked one up last year on GunBroker. Brand new. It sure wasn't cheap. I also added to the cost by shipping it out to Tripp to have the slide hard chromed. I also sent it to Teddy Jacobson for realiability and tuning. Needless to say I will hold on to this one. I bought one about 10 years ago for $600.00 and sold it five years ago to invest in a 1911. I regretted that move and kept my eyes open for another one. I also have an H&K P7M13 and a Walther P5c. I gave my brother a Walther P5 since I had the compact myself. I remember reading a few articles years ago in the gun rags when high capacity nines were all the rage. More than one writer called the Walther P88 the finest combat nine ever. I didn't know at the time what one even looked like. You may even get a few arguments about the finest combat nine from a few folks. Not me though. The H&K P7 is close. Great gun and I won't be getting rid of this one anytime soon. Eddie
