Can You give me some pros and cons on this particular gun. My cousin is purchasing his first handgun and so far he likes this one. It will be mostly for target shooting and home defense should the need arise.

If you are not a fan Walthers, please state why, and post other options for him. Thanks in advance for your help.

The P99 is a wonderful handgun. The trigger configuration is always the key consideration for anyone considering one. Most folks, it seems, opt for the AS trigger, although the QA certainly has its fans. If your cousin want to see a detailed, ongoing discission of the gun and the various trigger arrangements that you can get with one, have him head over to the Walther Forums and check out the P99 section. Here's a link:

I've got two P99s, by the way: a first-generation full-sized model and a P99C. Both have the AS trigger. I wouldn't trade them for much of anything on the market at just about any price.

Good luck.

What you have linked is A P99, but not a C. It is a .40 in the QA configuration.

Here is a P99C in .40:

It is difficult to find the P99c in .40 but even tougher in 9mm, good luck. Make sure you know the different configurations AS with decocker shown in this link.

At any rate I don't own one, but in my search for compact 9s and .40s it felt/the ergonomics were best for me. Better than the HK 2000SK or M&P S&W compacts.

If it is for practice/HD, 9mm is going to run slightly less $$ for ammunition.

Definitely need to find a few hold them and see what feels best in the hand.

DAdams is right. That is a full size . I prefer the AS version over the QA. I have both. The AS has one of the shortest resets & is extremely accurate.
