Later today we will be publishing many photos taken by my good friend Erik. I wanted to highlight this photo of the Brügger & Thomet VP-9 pistol, the first I have seen of the unusual pistol actually being fired. The B&T VP-9 is essentially a 21st century reimagining of the Welrod, the British covert bolt action pistol used during WWII. It is fully suppressed, magazine fed and has a bolt action.

Jonathan Ferguson, who has access to Britain remaining Welrods, wrote an excellent article for us last year about the VP-9.
