Greetings, and welcome to the forum, Samtex. This is a good, active forum that has been around for awhile now. You will find it to be a friendly place to post and learn, and your English is more than passable, especially when you consider what the internet and email and twitter and blogs and all the rest of it have done to destroy good writing and clear communication in this day and age. :) Enjoy your time here.

Hello from windy and wild Wyoming. I have two Walther G22s and a Walther P99 in .40, as well as some "lesser" guns. :)

I'm interested in guns for hunting, competitive shooting, and self defense. I was a long gun only guy until I acquired my P99 a few years ago. Since then I've branched out and have enjoyed the ride, though my wallet hasn't always enjoyed the cost!

Nice to have you on board, Wyo; welcome. We don't get many folks who talk about the G22 -- it's nice to have someone else on hand who can add to that discussion.

I see what you mean about the G22, not a single reply to my question yet!

I guess I forget to put my name on the introduction, you can call me Cliff.

Cliff it is, though if you don't sign off with it, you'll likely to be Wyo -- or a version thereof -- for a long time to come. :)

Don't give up on the ship on the rifle sub-section. We have some folks who drop in from time to time and post there. You may just find a friend or two yet.

Hi Everyone,,,,,,

Hellow everyone. My name is Al and just started getting into guns this last month. I don't know anything about guns but it sure is fun buying and shooting them. So far my first buy was a Walther P22 and a S+W airweight 38+p. Then I bought a Ruger SR9. Then I got the Walther 75th, anniversary PPK 380. Well not being happy with the Ruger because it was just to big but a very nice gun I swaped it out for a Beretta Tomcat 32. Well having like 12 boxes of 9er's I needed something to shot them out of so I got myself a Springfield XD9 to go with all them rounds. So then I felt I needed to upgrade the S+W38 which is another nice gun but I spotted the Walther PPS 40 and touched it:D ,,,,,,,,,well you know happened,,,, I swaped the 38 for it.
Al

Nice to hear. The PPK makes an excellent concealed carry weapon, and has for a long time now. The quality of the workmanship and the overall design on these guns always places them high on the must-have list -- glad you kept yours.

Welcome to the forum, Dissipator. You'll find this to be an informative place to hang out with lots of knowledgable members.

You might want to start by picking up Dieter Marschall's book "Walther Pistols Models 1 Through P99." It's available from Ucross Books in New Mexico and is readily available online for under $20. It will provide you with the detailed answers to many of the questions you seek.

Another valuable site, with many PP, PPK, and PPK/S specialists, can be found here:

http://www.p38forum.com/index.htm

In addition, check out the list of Walther pistols on some of the collector's sites that are listed in the Sticky notice under the P99 sub-section here, Great Sites for Walther Lovers. That will give you some idea about what's out there, the costs of a Nazi-era PPK, etc. You might want to start with Simpson's Ltd.

Keep us posted, and don't hesitate to holler if you have specific questions. Good luck.

Hello from the land down under

G'day all, I have had my P99 custom modified to comply to Australian laws looks stupid but it is the only way I can own it. I have it fitted with the walther laser.

G'day back at ya, mate, and welcome to the forum. It's always interesting to get a perspective on gun laws from around the world, so please tell us more about what the Aussie government expects from its citizens in the way of gun ownership and responsibilities these days, if you would. My understanding is that the politicians don't make it easy for you to own guns at all.

Any chance that you can post a photo or two of your P99 so that we can get a gander at it? Cheers ...

Well I may need some help uploading a photo as the link asks me for a http address???
As for the Australian laws basically bans high calibre handguns (above .38" or 9mm) for sporting shooters except for accredited events;
Bans short-barrelled handguns (under 12 cm for semi-automatics and under 10 cm for a revolver or single shot handgun) for sporting shooters;
Bans magazines above 10 shot capacity for sporting shooters;
All the Walther agent did was add a 20mm barrel extension for it to comply.
It takes at least 6 months to complete all that is required to even own a semi auto handgun. And once you own one you must do at least six club shoots per year to keep it, and pay lots of money.

Hi all! Just picked up a P-99 AS in .40. I had one back when they were was just one P-99, no AS or QA. It was my all time favorite gun, but I was young & broke and forced to sell it. I took this one to the range for the first time last Thursday and fell in love all over again! I am so much more accurate with the P-99 than I am with either of my Glocks. That's how it was with the first one too! Most accurate gun, out of the box, that I've ever had the privilege to shoot. :)

Welcome aboard, Jonm61. You'll have plenty of company if you like to talk about the P99; that section is the most active on the board. Of course, this also marks the last time that you can use the dreaded Glock word without being fined by the low court. :)
