Nice shooting, too.

I've got both the 226 and PPQ...but I purchased a .22 conversion kit for the 226 and now I leave it on most of the time. What an improvement over my S&W 422 (which, until I started shooting the 226 in .22 I was perfectly content with.)

And as much as I love my PPQ M1 I like my P99AS better. The 99 shoots almost like a DA/SA....with a regular DA on the first shot but then the striker-fired equivalent to SA on subsequent shots. Or simply thumb back the hammer (or rack the slide on the first shot)and its in SA...and the trigger is every bit as good as the Q.

Best DA/SA I own, however, is a 229E2. I bought it used and whatever the previous owner did to it...or it's simply amazing out of the box....wow. Nice.

Here's a bad pic of a 226 with E10 grips.

I like those G10 grips on your P226 and have been thinking of getting the same for one of my P226s,

Nice that you have a P99 AS. My Son has one and is what got me started on Walthers but at the time they were unavailable, pretty much as they are now, so I bought the PPQ when it first came out in mid 1911 and have owned it ever since. I probably will get a P99 AS 9MM too.

SigArms, if you haven't shot the Magnum Research MR9 with 4.5" barrel [basically a P99AS] it is very good. The frame is by Walther and the upper by Magnum Research, a Kahr affiliate. I shoot it better than the P99AS and the PPQ m1. And they are priced right. Very enviable collection you have and nice shooting.

Two metal from and two poly frame, some old school versus new school LOL. Had a really good time and range was not crowded being early on a weekday. For ammo I used PMC 115, Speer Lawman 115, and American Eagle 124 and 147. For me American Eagle 124 and 147 have become my favorite range ammo getting good results in everything I try them with. I did all shooting on 3 inch Shoot-N-C at 7 yards other then the last 20 rounds of the day being Speer Lawman 115 at 15 yards on a 5 inch Orange Peel target. As usual no issues with any of these terrific pistols. I can't really choose a favorite out of the four though for me my Walther PPQ is the best all around 9MM I own or have ever tried. For some reason I shoot a little low with my German P226 but use the same sight picture on all of them with the front sight dot centered on the target. My SP01 Shadow was the softest shooting being all steel but none of them were much to mention as far as recoil. I sure feel fortunate to own these four fine pistols.

Here are some pictures from today. All 3 inch target dots 10 rounds at 7 yards and Orange Peel 5 inch 20 rounds at 15 yards. Now time to do some maintenance on these beauties with bath and lube.









It's a great day to have an awesome range trip! Nice!!!!

Thanks for the compliment! I am 65 now and have been gradually adding pistols to my little collection over the years. I am not impulsive (well at least I think so, wife may think different) buyer and research my choices carefully and usually wait until I can try one out before buying.

That sounds really sweet about your MR9 and glad you are loving it.

However I have my eye on the newish Walther Q5 match as a possible next purchase though I am in no hurry. It goes for around $780.
