I was cleaning my P99 the other day and noticed that while the slide picked up fingerprints easily, none were evident on the polymer portion.

Given the texture of the polymer, can fingerprints be lifted from this section of a P99?

U sure U can get prints off of that if U don't have a lot of oil on your hand? I have worked with police officers a lot in the past, and I know that there is a lot of stuff they cannot get prints off of. It's not quite like CSI in real life.

No.........not if things are oily. You are correct. Things smudge easily.

I am certain. You'd be surprised at the evidence that can be recovered, if the crime warrants it.

I'm guessing finger printing techniques and technology has advaced considerably. Some tests and techniques are probably fairly expensive so they are not used very often but as Blueiron points out, " if the crime warrants it" the ability is there.
