I had one about 10 years ago, chambered in .40, with the OD green frame, but traded it off after having fired it only once or twice. Well, I recently traded into a nearly NIB gen3 P99, and shot it yesterday for the first time, and was VERY pleased with it. I filled both mags with a mix of Federal aluminum, and some steel cased Russian stuff (woulda been Wolf or Brown Bear, I can't be sure, they were rolling around loose in a box in my trunk,LOL!)) I put a cardboard sheet out about 12 yards, with several 8" outer circles drawn on it, and then a smaller silver dollar sized circles inside that (my usual MO) , and fired from a rest, just to see where it's really dialed in at, and everything I shot was just to the left of a tiny circle.Very close, but just a shade left. But then I fired another mag ,off-hand, and shot perfectly straight, several inside the little circle, and the rest just outside it, but a nice consistent,straight grouping, very evenly distributed. The trigger is vey light, resulting in one unintended double-tap,but even that one stayed inside the bigger circle. I'll surely get used to it, but regardless, it is light-years better than a Glock trigger (and I like Glocks). The medium sized backstrap came installed, and I have no urge to change to one of the other ones, nor to change to one of the other front sight posts. I thionk she's good to go,as is. So far, I'm reall happy with this thing, and I especially love having a decocker. It gives me much more peace of mind should I decide to carry it. I'd really like to hear from other P99 owners with their anecdotes, impressions, problems, warnings, recomendations, etc.etc.
