My new Walther P99AS!

I'm sure a bunch of you saw it on NASIOC, but I assumed I might as well post it here for any additional comments. I love the sucker thus far!

Finally! It arrived today, and I payed for the rest of it. I'm totally psyched. I definitely made the right decision on which handgun to pick. You might remember the other thread in which I tried to decide between the CZ P01, the Springfield XD, and the Walther P99.

The AS trigger is definitely something to behold. Such a great feeling. And it is indeed 100% German made, just imported by Smith and Wesson.

So, here are pics that my roommate took while I was out (he btw, is a few days away from purchasing the Springfield XD .45ACP 5" Tactical model)


However, I didn't even notice it until I got back with it, but I noticed this scratch on the slide. Kinda pissed me off. I know I didn't do it.

Anyway, yay for gun porn! I was also surprised, as the date code for it was AG, meaning it was a brand new 2007 model. Very cool.

Is it just me, or does it seem a poor idea that the photographer for pic #2 was standing downrange from the weapon with a round in the chamber?

I realize that it is unlikely to happen, but is a possibility. Equipment built by human hands can fail at any time.

Safety is a continuum, not a binary value; it's not as if you are either peachy-keen safe, or gonna die right here right now. But on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being in a padded, NBC-shielded room with pure'd food and thickened water, and 10 being pouring a quart of cow's blood into a shark tank, then diving into said tank, kicking the shark in the gonads and insulting its mother, this would be a 3 or a 4.
