I'm looking to buy a .40 but pretty new to the handgun arena. I have been looking at the Walther P99 .40 compact. My hands are on the smaller side but was wanting to know how many people had experience with this gun. I will primarily use the gun for target shooting and personal defense should the situation arise.

I recommend a S&W M&P40 which comes with interchangeable back straps to accommodate all hand sizes. Plus it's made in the USA.

The Walther P-99 is the same as the SW99 from Smith and Wesson. I have a full size and a sub-compact. Recoil is snappier than my other .40's. Good gun, just recoils more than it should

I had a .40 P99 full size and I hated that gun. It had some accuracy problems. I sent it back to the factory, but it never got any better. A compact polymer gun in .40 is not my idea of a good time at the range. Sharp, snappy recoil is not enjoyable to me.
