so any of you who read my last thread and commented know the predicament i was facing...after reading many of your replies i decided just to go to the gun shop up the road from my office (one of the walther preferred dealers) and find out the deal. turns out, they didn't ask me any questions about my lack of holding my license for 30 days and as a result i put a deposit down on a NIB 9mm p99 qa within 20 min of being in the store (they didn't have any in stock). i was quoted a price of $646 and the gun should be available to pick up on thursday/friday. all in all, i am very excited. just thought i would share that with everyone here on the boards.
