I can’t imagine it makes sense to carry a TEC-9 around the Streets of San Francisco, so I’m forced to conclude that people get them because the name sounds bad-ass.
The name sounds bad-ass owing to the 101 California shootings of 1993 – that’s when this gun took off, fame-wise.
(Here’s your TEC-9 hard at work.)
Anyway, I think we probably have too many of these items on the streets, just saying…
