well i'm a newb but let me first say i'm in love with the p99. I'm only 19 but i will me getting my first handgun hopefully soon. My Dad will be signing for it and just cause i'm young does't mean i'm dumb i know guns aren't toys but i just love to shoot. Because of my age i won't be carrying this gun all the time only in its case. I think i want the 9mm but you guys are the real gurus so i haven't really decided. i don't understand the different types of p99 (doa,qa,as). What do you guys recommend. I've been shooting my friends springfield xd 9mm ported and i like the way it shoots. i really don't know to much of the gun language so don't loose me. thanks for all of your help in advanced.
