To start off, let me say that this is my first post on this great site. The Walther P99AS (.40), I feel, is what I really want. I've seen it and held it but never fired it. I've fired the Walther P22 rental in Lebanon and loved it, however, it's not the same as big brother P99. I guess I'm looking for several questions to be answered about this gun: 1. Have you shot it (P99, AS or not)? 2. Is it a good CCW? 3. Difference between Smith & Wesson version vs. all German made? 4. Is it reliable? 5. Do you honestly like it? I know I want the AS version over SA/DA and I love the .40 cal round, I just don't really know anyone who owns a Walther even, let alone a P99AS... They seem rare.
