...so whats the Walther got going for it. What would make him trade in a fine Colt Commander with ivory grips for THAT (which looks uglier than my G19).

Well, that Colt Commander from HEAT certainly was an excellent and good-looking sidearm. P99's are incredibly ergonomic, reliable, accurate, durable......They are just overall great guns. I realize polymer guns aren't for everyone, but you really have to hold one to see what I mean. They are pretty much the most ergonomic double stack gun around as far as I'm concerned. Some would argue the HK P30 takes that title, but I'd disagree. While those are pretty good, they are still a bit blocky in shape.

Except for maybe "Scarface" I just don't see Pacino as a tough guy.He did a pretty good tough guy in "Serpico", too.

I recall that Pacino used two Colt Officer's ACP pistols in HEAT. Both were up for auction a few years ago. One was seriously converted to fire blanks.
The pyramid shape of the slide should have been a giveaway that it was a Walther P99...Hey it was good enough for Bond
The P99 was one of the first guns with interchangeable backstraps and it was the first DA/SA striker fired pistol which allowed the hammer to be fired from the completely at rest position. I also really like it's slide mounted de-cocker
