...and it was a great first experience with the walther. I have shot my friends 9mm glock before and I must admit, the p99 has a bit more of a kick to get used to. On the upside though, I switched on and off between the p99 and a glock 19 (the two pistols I am debating about purchasing) and while the glock is a little easier to handle the walther is much more accurate for me. I will probably pick up the g19 a few months after I purchase the walther. I asked the clerk there whether or not I was shooting an AS or a QA...he was befuddled with my question and just said that was the "original model". I'm assuming the original was AS...am I wrong? I am considering the QA because many reviews and ppl claim it has a more glock like feel to the trigger which I like. If anyone has any input or suggestions feel free. Other than that I was very impressed with the walther and that experience has solidified me in purchasing one. Will post pics as soon as that transaction is done. Thanks!
