P99 Range Report

All I can say is...Wow! I took my new P99 to the range this morning and put about 250 rounds through it. I was using WWB from Wally World. Not a single hiccup! My 14-yr old son and my neighbor also shot it and were very impressed.

I can't say that I'm a very big fan of the standard sights. I thought they were a little difficult to acquire -- particularly in the dim light at our local indoor range. But I can't really argue with the results! I posted some pics of my targets on my website, here: http://users.adelphia.net/~jimdick/targets.html

I found the fit of the gun in my hand to be VERY comfortable. Interestingly, both my son and my neighbor complained that they had a sore spot on their finger from the trigger. We'll have to investigate more and see how they fire compared to me. I didn't notice it at all.

The AS trigger system was fine with me. The DA isn't nearly as tough as my Ruger and to be honest, I didn't notice the difference between the first SA shot and the next...the extra bit of travel that makes it "AS" didn't register. I found the mag release and the decocker were simple enough to manipulate with just a slight change in grip...something I'm used to with my Sig and Ruger anyway.

All in all, I couldn't be happier with my choice. My son is pretty pleased, too! I can't wait to get back out on the range and get used to her some more!
