however I too carry mine decocked
*edit... i guess I should read to the end of all posts ... then I would see that more agreed on this issue...
keep in mind that the P99 has undergone many tests... or it would not be a police gun in Germany.... withunder droptests that are required there too in order to make it to a police trial.....
The P99 DA/SA is called P99/AS (ANTI Stress) for a reason though.... the SA first shot long triggerpull

Maybe I'm just feeling curmudgeonly today, but I've come to the conclusion that questions like this should always be answered "NO!!!"
No offense intended to the original poster, but if you don't understand the gun well enough, or for whatever reason don't feel comfortable carrying cocked, then HECK NO you shouldn't carry it that way! In fact, until you understand the gun's functioning and manual of arms well enough that you don't have to ask questions like this, you probably shouldn't carry it at all!

denverd0n, don't get your Thunderwear in a bunch! HAHAHA.
I would feel comfortable carrying it ready to rock, but in a holster that guards the trigger.
Life, liberty, and the pursuit of the ultimate CC gun!

I have never been happier with any pistol right out of the box than I am with the Walther P99c/AS..
I have other 9's that are fine in one way or another, (S&W 3913/Walther P5/KelTec P11/Bersa Thunder 9/UC, Sig P239 come to mind) but as a whole package the Walther P99c/AS is just the complete package...
I do recommend the AS trigger if you get a Walther P99 series pistol. It seems Walther P99 and P99c owners who have the AS trigger/striker setup love it, and there has been some less than happy folks commenting on the other action types. (QA?)
I could be wrong, have been before... You might ask this same question over on the dedicated Walther forum.. You'll get plenty of response from folks who actually own the P99 or P99c's.
But I LOVE my P99c/AS...
