Its considered a pistol and there fore illegal for you to own.
At your age you should not be concerned with firearms, but instead working on aquiring as many useful skills as possible in life.

Sounds like his friend got it illegaly, that's for sure. I didn't see anything other than his attitude (and his choice in friends) that said he was 17 himself. Most tech 9's that I've heard of were not from the gun shop, you need to distance your self from this "friend" of yours unless you like risking jail time.

It's a thug toy because when you find one it tends to have a filed down firing pin. It's not the kind of gun you will be using at the range or carrying for self defence.

From its submachine gun heritage, the original TEC-9, model KG-9, featured an open bolt design. This made it easy for the weapon to be converted to fully automatic fire, which, combined with its high magazine capacity and low cost, made it a popular weapon with criminals, especially street gang members. This led to the weapon acquiring a highly negative reputation with the general public, who began to associate it with violent crime.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) responded in 1982 by forcing Interdynamic — by then known as Intratec — to convert the design to a closed-bolt action that would be harder to make fully automatic. The closed-bolt model was designated the KG-99 and was marketed at first as the TEC-9 and later as the TEC-DC9. The fearsome reputation of the TEC-9 kept its popularity high among criminals even though few if any were able to convert the TEC-DC9 to full auto.

The TEC-DC9 variant was among the weapons used by Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold in the 1999 Columbine High School Massacre. [2] Two years after Columbine, in 2001, Intratec went out of business and the AB-10 model production ceased.



found this for your answer.

I'm sure it's his dads etc...

Lets not get hasty here... I had a 1911, .357, AK, AR etc when Iwas 15/16... My dad bought them, nothign illegal there...


The Tec 9 is Utter crap, besides that... it's not a very concealable pistol.

May all my enemies be armed with Tec 9's...
Your right it could be his dad's. Tec 9's are crap, but may all my enimies be armed with bb guns.

NO! If it doesn't function 100% reliably, then its a wait of money...PERIOD! We're talking about a firearm...a tool. Not a painting or sculpture....looks have nothing to do with anything. The fact that you think you should buy a firearm only on the looks and the "cool factor" proves to me you have no buisness owning a firearm. Firearms are tools for a specific purpose....not a toy.

Again, you are to young to own this firearm, also, by the username, title and signiture you use on this forum, you are not mature enough to own a firearm.

Focus on learning skills, they will be much, much more useful in life.

I wouldn't use one as a Doorstop.

You want cool:

AK47

AR15

Glock

1911

M1

M14

870 ('Police type')

etc...


Start with a 22.

The Ruger 10/22 has aftermarket 'Banana clips' and you can tinker with different stocks if you want cool. (And it's cheap)

Dang your right, I just checked his profile and he's only 14. He has no business owning a pistol. If his dad wants to take him to the range and learn him how to shoot that's one thing, but he is not old enough to have in his posetion a tool that is designed to kill things.

Sorry buddy, but I can not give you any advice on firearms other than what Larule has just said.

Nobody said you are dumb, I don't believe you are. I do believe you are not mature enough to handle the responsibility of gun ownership. I also believe you are focusing to much on guns. Again, learn all kinds of skills. You will get much farther in life with a wide range of learned skills and a good education.

there is also a tec-22 that shoots 22lr. Saw one a while back. If THAT was full auto, it would be fun to shoot. They take ruger 10/22 large cap mags.

Dang, you are absolutely right. I just checked out his profile and he's only 14. He has absolutely no bussiness being around firearms with out adult supervition. Guns are not toys to be played with, they were designed to kill things and break stuff just like the military. Not something for minors to be mettling with period end of descution.

just because some one comes across as the "wouldn't hurt a fly" type doesn't make it true. If he is an imancipated minor then he doesn't live with his parents and there fore my first thought was probably right, he got it illegaly. How much do you know about this "friend" of yours. I would be very cautious about him because if he has conections to people who sell illegal firearms then it may be modified as i earlier suggested. On top of that people who sell illegal firearms ussally sell other illegal things and a good percentage of them are the thugs that we were talking about who own such guns.

You need better friends, you are putting your self in alot of risk here. Turn on your brain and do it quick, life ain't no game!
