This yellow TP9 (based on Steyr TMP) looks great!

Easy to find in the dark!

    Actually the gun is a shade of brown but looks yellow in this photo. You'll see a few people armed with these in the sandbox if you search for the photos online. Actually I think the B&T site links to such photos.

    The gun was originally designed by Steyr and B&T bought the icense and made some modifications to it.

    Criminals? They come in all types.

    The B&T TP-9 is actually legal in most states of the U.S. it is the semi-auto version of the MP9 also made by B&T. It comes I believe in 3 different shades, the Yellow, Black and I believe a sort of Tan/Khaki color as well is a given option. I am currently in the process of purchasing one from a local vendor here in Arizona and I did have the luck of firing a few rounds from one at the range. It is built sturdy and it seems like a very reliable self defense weapon although for the CW permit I am a bit wary of trying to conceal something that big, might as well just have a hip holster or pick something much smaller for a concealed weapon. The pro's to the TP-9 is the immense modular flexability that it has there are two rails one on the top for a decent scope and the bottom for either a tactical flashlight or a laser. For self defense purposes I would highly suggest against a flashlight due to the fact it obviously gives a very good target for anyone who might be firing back. The front barrel of the TP-9 also has a recoil rotating barrel to reduce recoil and has pretty good accuracy as well. Overall I believe this is an excellent self defense or overall range weapon. Although the price tag can be a bit steep around 1.2k is the average price tag I think. Have fun and always remember to handle guns with care and always shoot safely.

    - Sincerely,
