My TP-9 and no it's not a custom built on a Kahr P frame or cut down. This is one of the original TPs when they first came out with MMC target adjustable rear sight. Up to just a couple months ago, this was my daily carry along with the two knives picture with it. I now carry either a ATI FX45 GI1911 Commander or a Chiappa Rhino 200DS with these two knives. With all the craziness happening I wanted a little more stopping power and though I don't doubt that the TP could deliver with the 147 +P that I carried in it. The heavier bullets just give me a little more peace of mind especially when my family is with me.
