    hi RTMonforte, buy another glock:) kidding aside, saw a p99 frame crack just above the trigger guard, but the gun still works. the locking piece of berettas are prone to breakage. most of our local police here that are active in the shooting sports encountered that problem with their issue berettas.

    the cz 75/85 is popular in the production division. for carry and play, i think the g19 can do a good job for both:)

    ill go with the 92fs, plenty of parts to start with, since you're carrying a 19, try mo rin 34

    i think the 34 won't qualify for the production in ipsc. but thats a good gun,lower na yung trigger pull.sa standard na yata sya papasok pero minor. baka sa idpa mas lamang di lang ako sigurdo

    I had a Walther P99 DA/SA model about four years ago. The customizable grip is one of the better grips. I use the medium size. The SA trigger is one of the sweetest in DA/SA guns -- much better that my CZ85. My split was better vs my later CZ. The slide is heavy, but still flips a lot like glock -- but I personally believe handles better that glock because of the grip.

    One thing is that you can use lead bullets, but chamber is tight and bullet length is custom set to P99 barrel. I encountered keyholes when bullet are quite short, and has problem extracting loaded round when set too high. It depends though on the ogive of the bullet head.

    I broke a firing pin during a dry fire. That was the only breakage I had when it was with me for two years. It was active in IPSC shooting for around 8 months, when I decided to get a 'real' steel gun (Tanfoglio, later CZ).

    I sold it later to my brother in law, when I got the smaller G26.

    Tried a friend's P99 and it handled well. IMHO, it's smaller and concealable than a Glock 19.

    The problem with locking blocks cracking in Berettas has been corrected in subsequent generations of 92Fs. It can be a result of lightening the recoil spring and hammer spring. I lightened the hammer spring on the Taurus PT92 that I gave my wife, but at the same time, changed the recoil spring to an extra power spring to compensate for the reduction in the hammer spring.

    If you plan to carry concealed, get a P99 or a Glock 19. If you plan to carry your gun in a fanny pack, get either a Beretta 92F, Taurus PT92 (which is essentially a Beretta, only priced lower), or a Glock 17.:)

    sir RTMonforte,

    same problem kayo ng uncle ko before he wanted a gun for carry. pinagpipilian nya yung p99 at 92fs. eventually yung 92fs ang binili nya because of parts availablity at sabi nyamas maganda raw yung trigger pull ng 92fs compare sa p99.

    These problems are encountered in Beretta 92F's and are no longer present in the 92FS's. The only problems I enconountered with my Beretta was broken firing pin when I kept on dry firing so much and a broken trigger spring. The former can be prevented by the use of punched leather swatches placed to cushion the hammer fall (I found dummy ammo/snap caps ineffective).

    [​IMG]

    The latter with an aftermarket spring system. Alexii knows where to order this.

    I've been shooting my 92FS in production division on and off for almost 2 years and it has yet to fail me. Eats all the ammo I've tried in it. Replaced the hammer spring with the 92D's to lighten the trigger pull early 2005 and that's it. You're ready to play. You could also get the Mec-Gar mags that carry 17 (can be modified to take in 18) rounds.

    It also easily fits in my fanny pack so I can take it along with me. Too big for an IWB rig, though.

    Good luck with your choice.

    I used to carry my G19 but unfortunately, the headspace or breechface cracked. Happened to me twice. Dry firing was the culprit.
    As long as you use a dummy ammo for dry firing for your Glock, there will never be a problem. Between P99 or a Beretta 92FS, I'll go for a Walther. It's lighter and easier to carry while the Beretta is somewhat larger than a 1911 if you consider carrying it. Accuracy and Reliability wise, I think that they are both ok.

    If you're going the Beretta route, make sure that the model is 92FS and not 92S (like those reconditioned units being sold for 20k plus).

    Good luck and let us know when you finally have your pistol.:)

    I have had numerous Berettas. But for me, the Walther P99 is the most accurate gun I have ever shot. I shoot it better than even 1911s, for some strange reason.

    Pssst...get them both.

    Don't worry.

    With guns, you can be a two-timer and nobody will complain.
