How did you first hear of the P99?

With the the popularity of the 007 movies and other franchises, I was wondering how many of you were turned to the P99 because of something Bond related.

I'll admit I got interest in the P99 from Die Another Day, but I bought it because of its functionality and feel in the hand. I think it'd be interesting to post another poll later to see why people bought the P99. I wonder if some people bought it because 007 has it, much like the sales of .44 Magnum revolvers went up after Dirty Harry's release

I found an ad on GlockTalk for someone wanting to trade a P99 for a hicap 9mm. Not knowing what a P99 was and in need of a CCW, I did some research on it. After researching the internet about it (the most obvious poll category missing above), I went to a gun shop to check one out. After holding and dry firing one, I traded my beloved Beretta 92FS 9mm with 2 hicaps for a P99 in 40S&W. Though the P99 has some hoster wear, I really like it a lot. The Bond thing was the cherry on top for me.
