The Brügger & Thomet VP9 (Veterinary Pistol 9mm) is a Swiss suppressed pistol.

HistoryEdit

The VP9 was marketed by Brügger & Thomet as a humane animal killer for agricultural, hunting or veterinary use.

Design DetailsEdit

The VP9 is essentially a modernized version of the classic Welrod pistol. The suppressor of the VP9 has silicon wipes and baffles; this reduces the suppressor's life expectancy to only 20 rounds. However, the weapon has practice suppressors made of aluminum for more cost-effective training.
