I peruse the rimfire forum here, but have had little reason to come up to this one, mainly because I didn't own a P99. That changed today. There is a gunshow going today and tomorrow, and I went specifically to get a Rock Island 1911. The show was well attended, and I had to wait a few minutes to talk to the seller about getting the paperwork done. I was browsing his other items when a 9mm P99 Titanium slowly started whispering to me. I put it off to crowd noise, mainly because the P99 has never really interested me: the grip, believe it or not, never really fit my hand well, regardless of which one I tried. There was something really attractive about the Titanium, though, but hey: I just spent a grand at the other gunshow in Savannah 3 weeks ago, so I thought I could just walk away. But no, it really WAS whispering to me. then it started talking, then it started screaming.

Suffice it to say, I am now the proud owner of a Rock Island 5" 1911, AND a beautiful P99 Titanium. As I sat here getting used to it tonight, I realize that I should never have waited this long and it really does fit my hand rather well.

Tomorrow it gets broken in at the range.

So, how did the range experience go for you? Just wondering what you think of it so far. I am picking mine up tonight after work. Can't wait to get out myself. I will probably have to wait for the weekend now though. - Skister

Unfortunately, I couldn't get to the range yesterday. Drats! Now I have to wait until Friday, and more's the pity, because there's now 4 brand new guns sitting here waiting to get broken in.
