I know there is some '24' fans here
I am not sure as to what episode it was, or even what season... but a few days ago I had a quick peek and sure enough the bad guy had a P99.
It was the show where they hide some sort of chemical in the ventilation systhem of a big hote.

Is he using a USP or a USP/c
I don't care for the USP as it is waaaayyy to big for my hands... I do like the USP/c though
on another note.... you guys heard of Wilcox making .45's HK's in the USA.
There was a huge shift within HK.

It's definitely a compact. The full size .45 was a bit too big for me (I couldn't reach the slide stop with my thumb) but the full size 9mm felt great. The Compact .45 was also very nice.

Please explain the shift within HK. Who is Wilcox? An executive?

not sure what will happen.... everybody is waiting on the HK45 to get to the stores.... but I am wondering now if we ever will see a german made HK45... or if HK is just going to wait till they are made state side......(frankly I am not even sure which of the .45's they are talking about in this article)
HK (JS) also got baught up just recently... which has nothing to do with the pistols and guns we buy here in the US... which is the defensive line of guns.....

The P99 is all over the place in 24, but especially in Season 3. I just began watching it this summer and have made it through almost the entire series on DVD. I have lost count of the P99s that I see.

Strangely enough, I all the times I've noticed a P99/SW99 on TV, it has always been the bad guys weapon. With the exception of Bond, I know of no good guy/gal using the P99. I guess Selene in Underworld is sort of a gray area.

Another one I forgot about - one of the good guys in the movie "Ritana" uses a P99 throughout the movie.

The P99 is one of the more hi-tech looking pistols out there. it's a good looking weapon so I guess it's popular. I should ask an armorer next time I'm on a set with one and see if there's a particular reason for it other than looks. I know some guns work squibs (movie blanks) better than others so that could be a factor, too.

There was a scene in 24 season 5 where Jack had a gun at a bad guy's head. The camera cuts away, then back to the gun, which now has the slide about 1/2" back like he's had a stovepiped round or something. Poor work at that point, but I love the show.

The P99 has to be machined quite a bit to fire blanks successfully. You can always tell a converted P99 due to a huge part of the breech being machined away and creating a slope at the front. The majority of P99's used in movies are PAK versions, this is certainly the case for the Bond films, with a live coverted P99 only being fired in the virtual sequence of Die Another Day and the office pre-credit b&w sequence in Casino Royale. All other times you see the P99 being fired, it's a PAK.

You seem to know quite a lot about prop firearms. Are you an armorer or just interested?
