    I am feeling the pull of a 9mm PPQ---don't know if its gonna happen yet---but I also own a S&W/Walther SW99 in 45 ACP---does that count?

    From what I see on Walther forums, the SW99 is a well respected gun. Nothing beats the real deal though, but all in all it's still a good gun.

    I have both full and compact. I like to be able to decock the pistol and leave one in the chamber

    That's a pistol I'd like to hear more about. I've never actually seen one in the wild.

    The SW99 has a large following, should be tons of info on the internet.

    I'm referring to the .45ACP version specifically. Seen plenty of 9mm/.40S&W versions of the SW99 before.

    Oh, I didn't catch the .45 part, I think smith-wesson forums would have some info. That's if they exist, lol.

    I picked up a P99AS in .40 at Cabela's earlier this year (since my 9mm P99AS is such a sweet shooter, I thought it would be fairly manageable in .40 as well), and I'm not particularly thrilled with it; the recoil is excessive, and I'm saying this as a regular, proficient 1911 .45ACP shooter, and I keep hitting the mag release no matter how I try to grip it.

    But in 9mm, I think the P-series is on my short list of favorites.

    There are a couple things I did with my Walther to make it a much easier carry piece with recoil management. First, spend the extra time/money getting 155-165 grain HPs instead of 180. It severely reduces the muzzle climb.

    The P99 comes with the medium grip panel installed. Try the other two to see if it becomes more comfortable. All you need is a 1/8" straight wall punch and a hammer to knock out the pin at the bottom next to the logo. I would recommend trying the large grip since that will get your fingers farther from the mag catch.
