I have made the decision that I want my first handgun to be a p99 9 mil.. most likely in the OD Green. the only thing is that I have not been able to find any ranges around here that will rent me one so I can try it out for myself (I have held a few but as positive I am that I will love it, I still won't buy without shooting first) Does anyone know of anyplace in Southern New Hampshire where I could rent a p99 for a few hours to try out.. the only place that I really know around here doesn't have them.
After I shoot it is just a matter of saving up the 600 bux and convincing the woman that I need a handgun (or hideing it from her. one of the two)
Thanks All

Southern NH? Well, I live in lovely Manch-Vegas (Manchester for you out-of-towners). I shoot at Manchester Firing Line every week. While they do not have a P99 for rent, they do have the SWP99 for rent in the .40cal. Almost the same, and it will give you a good idea. If your still unsure, I may be able to meet you at the range and let you fire off some rounds with my P99 9mm.
Also, be carefull where you buy. $600 is a bit high for the P99. I was able to get mine from a local dealer for $540.
New in the box, Greman made, with all proof marks. I am not sure if I can post that here, so email me if you like.
Wise chioce on the P99, one heck of a fine pistol

Well I still want to shoot one before I purchase.. the only other that I am looking at is the sig p229 that I have shot many times.. but overall I like the look of the p99.. the OD Green, the trigger guard and just the overall look.. I have no doubt about the quality of either of the ones in question and I will probably end up with both eventually.
I appreatate your offer and might take you up on it sometime.. I live in Londonderry so I am not that far.. infact wolf errr Manchester firing line is where I go to shoot when I want to try out a new gun.
I think at this point it is a waiting game, I am afraid if I bring a new gun home I might need a new home.. hehe
Take Care

remember........ it's easier to ask for forgiveness than it is to ask for permission.

Too true


Sig P229 or Walther P99, you can't go wrong with either pistol.  Both are great.
As for the wife, I took mine to the range one day with my old .38 and the promise of dinner and softserve later-on that evening.  Low and behold, she enjoyed herself.
After a few more trips, she shocked me a few weeks ago by buying herself a SigP232.  She shoots once a week, and this Sunday, she is going to the SigAcademy for a Womans pistol self-defense class.  Guess you just can't tell sometimes.
Good luck with you pistol purchase.

Ahhh, yes, it is a very good idea to try before buying.
I've found that some friends of mine can't hit the side of a barn (well, a picture of one anyways) at 50 ft with my P99 9mm, but I don't know why! Other friends can hit all black at 50ft, slow fire target.
