yup, thats the P99. Have one in my safe right now. I agree with Big, I dont like the mag release there. I even owned the P22 for a while. (It's the same thing just the .22 version.) Also stated above, Walther means quality.

But what makes it even cooler and more accurate along with more stopping power is that James Bond uses it now. not kidding ya. wouldn't lie about something like this. Brosnan bond anyway.

Could be wrong, not sure. Kinda high on Percocet right now so if I am incorrect on anything please someone, let me know. Unless its spelling. Or grammar.

or factual.

The german goverment had evalutated the P99 as standard duty pistol for the Polizei but didn`t take it.

You are correct. The P99 is introduced in Tomorrow Never Dies, a movie in which Bond carries both the classic PPK and the new pistol. The remains Bond's weapon of choice and we don't see the PPK again until the newest installment, Quantum of Solace. I really liked seeing the PPK in the new movie, but was also hoping that the newer Walther PPS might make an appearance as a replacement to the P99, but no such luck.
