Walther seems to produce/import the P99 (other guns as well) in batches. For instance, the PPQ M2 5" 22 has been unavailable for months. I did a search last night and they're available again.
Good day. I have answered my own question by picking up my brand new P99 yesterday from my local gun shop. This one will stay around, while I plan on using my original one as a carry weapon for a new part-time Court job.
This will be my first official non-Sig Sauer duty pistol, so I will see how it goes.
As usual, thank you to all who participated in this topic.
Cool.Howdy, folks. One more small addition to this story. I shot my "old" P99 officially last week for a job qualification. The bad news is I only shot a 228 score. The good news was it was out of a maximum of 230. That pistol was a blast to shoot, literally and figuratively. I threw one shot into the 3 ring. Oh, well.
But now, thanks to another thread, a P5 seems appropriate for my next one.
Again, thanks to you all.
They cannot be hard to find. I know of two large distributors who have them in stock from the usual “Christmas shipment.” Have your dealer order one.Howdy, folks.
I am just wondering if any place still has any P99 AS's left. Specifically, the 9mm, and not the P99c. I have one of each, but it is my favorite choice for carry, and I wanted another one. Too late??? <img src="http://www.waltherforums.com/forum/images/smilies/frown.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Frown" class="inlineimg" />
As usual, thank you to any responses.
