Anyone have a experience with the Walther P99QA semi auto handgun?Good for self-defense?
I bought one 2 weeks ago and it is the best pistol I have had.
Very crisp and dead on accurate even from the very first mags.
I would highly recommend this gun
I don't have the QA version (Glock like trigger) but I do own a AS version (decocker). They are fantastic pistols and I'm guessing you have been looking at CDNN and a $439 price point. I would say you couldn't go wrong with one even at a higher price. The good news is they are priced to sell now that the PPQ is out.
I personally hate Walther. Garbage garbage garbage. I think they might be made from the same plastic as tupperware.
Is the Walther P99QA considered a large, medium or compact gun? Im a big guy and I don't want anything small. I would prefer a medium to large frame gun and I'm trying to stay under $400...any suggestions?
The 99 compact is about the same size as a Glock 26.
If your not looking for a compact you open many other doors in choices.
Do you have any suggestions as far as to staying under $400. This will be my first pistol. Ive got a 12 gauge pump action shot gun
Stoeger cougar 8000/ $360 around me. Beretta clone at a great price.
Stoeger Cougar Double-Action, Auto-Loading Pistol
Compared to the Taurus PT24/7pro ds or the Taurus PT24/7pro2. Which out of the two would you consider?I like the feel of the Taurus and the frame size
I can't recommend any Taurus except this one which is a little over your $ limit... Click:
For a high-capacity 9mm in that price range, here's an idea... This is what many Argentine military and police personnel are issued... Bersa Thunder 9 (...it's a lot lighter than the PT92):
Bersa Thunder 9mm Matte, 17 round $388.00 SHIPS FREE
I'd consider this at $398.00. Ruger SR9c....
I have Walther p99qa for my home self defense gun shoots great love the Qa because i can decock with a round in the chamber(trigger is dead) with a slight move of the slide re-cock it.
I have the Smith & Wesson sw99. Walther p99 lower with s&w slide and barrel. It has the de-cocker feature but it is double action.
P99qa is double action but when you hit the de-cocker the trigger will no longer function untill you rack the slide a quarter of an inch
Ah ok...the S&W doesn't need to do that. It extends the trigger travel out further. While cocked it is almost a like a hair trigger...de-cocked is a full pull.
So the S&W is like the P99as
You can find the S&W99 in the same trigger options as the Walther.
I had one about 6 or 7 years ago. I hated it. It wouldn't group at all and I was not impressed with the trigger at all. I didn't like the mag release either. It was one fastest-resold guns I've ever owned.
