I've seen aftermarket 32 rnd mags for the 9mm p99, but are there any really high cap mags for the .40 cal. ??

Glock makes a 32 rnd for the 9mm (g18) and another company makes one for a 40 cal.

I want a p99 in .40 cal., but would reaaly like to have a mag. over 25 rnds just for fun.

Thanks

Well all my high cap mags from there work fine even though they dont look right. The same thing happened with glocks who just need 30 rounds.

I keep a 32 round Glock mag with my Glock 17 when I'm in remote areas but a long gun would be inappropriate.
Big Bend Nat'l Park for example, firearms are prohibited but almost required in the remote areas.
A Glock 17 is not going to attract a Rangers attention from tent to car like an AR-15 would.

also nm_p99 i know i recieved a book of laws when i got my cwp i dont know if you have a cwp but in my book of federal laws its a big deal/crime to bring your guns/handguns into a federal park.i just cant see where you would need a handgun there if your carefull for wildlife/but a law is a law/even scarier its a federal law.:)

Wildlife is not the problem.
Being in close proximity to a third world country where the Federal Police and Military routinely escort drug smugglers into the US is the problem.
Big Bend has over 801,000 acres patrolled by 2 Armed Federal LEO's.
I am a CCW instructor for my state, I know the Federal laws regarding firearms in a Nat'l Park. I've also seen the bodies fished out of the Rio Grande river.
I am not advocating that anyone break a Federal law, just saying that your personal protection is your responsibility and 911 is not an option in some areas.
I will say this, I go to BB NP 2-3 times a year and have been for at least 15 years, I've had far more encounters with undesireables than I've had interaction with NPS Rangers.
I've seen a NPS Ranger at my favorite remote campsite exactly 1 time, I've seen armed Vaqueros from Mexico on horseback 4 or 5 times.

From the NPS "daily report" re: Big Bend NP.
http://data2.itc.nps.gov/morningreport/results.cfm
A few snips from the reports:
"During a search for a fleeing drug smuggler on March 31st, rangers and officers discovered the partially-exposed remains of a body in a remote area of the park."

"Rangers and Border Patrol officers seized more than three tons of processed marijuana within the park on January 3."

"Rangers have been involved this month in a number of incidents of smuggling drugs and illegal aliens:"

"conducted a search in heavy mesquite brush and river cane for a reported marijuana plantation within the park near the banks of the Rio Grande"

Yeah I'd stay away from the park if you don't feel safe without a gun there. If they catch you you've just commited a serious offense that may affect your ability to purchase weapons in the future, if not worse.

Then again, you're of course fully aware of this so I appologize for preaching :)

The remote areas of BB NP are relatively crime free, in fact it is probably many times safer than most small cities. But unlike most cities if you do run into the criminal element out in the backcountry you will have NO law enforcement or good samaritan back-up, you are completely 100% on your own. I am a very self sufficient individual and that is why I like the remote corners so much.
The problem with "staying away" from everywhere criminals go is that eventually you run out of places.
Where do you live and enjoy recreation? I gaurantee that if you research the park down the street or the corner store where you buy coffee, that a major crime has been committed there or in the immediate vicinity within the past year.
Crime and criminals are EVERYWHERE.
I do not let criminal activity dictate how I live my life, I prefer to take prudent precautions and keep a low profile.
Everything in life is a compromise, you weigh the options and select the course of action that best fits your analysis of the facts.

The coffee shop no, but you'd be amazed at how many federal regulations regarding firearms that you yourself have probably broken at one time or another. Not to mention state laws.
Out of the 20k plus Federal laws regarding firearms, there are a few that can easily trap the otherwise law abiding firearms owner.
