    You just want to post your pic of the other 4 shots after to burst my bubble. :supergrin:

    I will post it tonight when I get home.

    Shot numero uno with Indy Guy's P99. I should have quit while I was ahead. :supergrin:

    My dad's first shot with a bow. Not quite where he wanted it to go, but at least he hit something. ;)

    A cool pic I took of my dad shooting his GP-100 at last weekend's bowling pin match at MCFG. If you look closely I think you can see the bullet striking the top of one of the pins on its side.

    Thanks. I try the best I can with the equipment I have (Canon digital Elph pocket camera). On the muzzle flash one, that was me rapid firing the camera hoping to get at least one shot of the flash, and I did. You haven't seen the 20+ other pictures that didn't work out. Throw in a quick crop job and that is what came out.

    Guys like Lunde at SigForum are special, but for the vast majority of us, taking LOTS of pictures is the best way to take good pictures! I have hard drives full or digital images, and have photo boxes with prints and negatives (over 500 rolls archived). Ansel Adams worked his magic in a dark room for ridiculous amounts of time. Fortunately, we have PhotoShop (ImageMaker, etc.).

    So... I've seen exactly one shot! I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop!

    What, you aren't satisfied with my one shot group?

    :animlol:

    I think my nerves got the best of me for the other 4 and mucked it all up.

    Overall I am pretty impressed with the P99, but that AS trigger would take some getting used to for me to carry it.

    The P99 is the gun the Glock wishes it could grow up to be.

    Finally!!! :hugs:

    Not sure which order they punched through, though. His outstanding group was done utilizing 115gr WWB FMJ at 7 yards, standing, slow fire.

    As a comparison, here is MY first target of the day using the P99. 15 rounds 115 gr Blazer Brass FMJ. By round 9 or so, I started getting fatigued and the group opened up considerably.

    I am still fond of the Austrian tupperware though.
