AMEN Brother! I drove about 1.5hrs one way on two seperate occasions because I was calling shops to see if they had a P99 in stock. Both times they told me they had a P99 and I drive up there only to find that it was a SW99. Pissed me off to no end! I told both shops this and now I will make every effort to never spend money or refer anyone to the second store since I was very specific over the phone that I didn't want a SW99 and that is how they lured me to drive up there.Could also be because S&W no longer makes the SW99. Believe it or not, a lot of times when I mention a WALTHER P99 at my local stores, they seem to think I am speaking of the SW99 even though I said Walther.
Is he a member of this forum?If you learn anything from this, it should be that most "facts" in the gun community have nothing to back them up. Even though many people will nit picks over caliber, they refrence wrong, outdated tests from 20-30 years before balistics gel.
Had a guy at a gun store talk about how a 9mm would wound someone but a 40cal would knock them down.
