That is how I ended up with the 990. I was just moving into semi-autos from revolvers. My favorite semi-auto is the 1911, but at the time I didn't exactly trust the manual of arms. Have gotten much better with a 1911, and the 990 rarely comes out of the safe anymore.[b said:Quote[/b] ]I have handled a P990 in 9mm. I liked it but I was looking at it more as a good semi-auto pistol to train someone with. The long travel trigger pull was close enough to a revolver that I felt it would make a good transition pistol from revolver to semi-auto.
