OK, so soon I am getting a custom made sniper that shoots 650 FPS with a .2, and while this is 150 fps over my local field limit, they said I can use it, but i'll have to have a really big minimum engagement distance. I do have a KWA USPT, I don't like it as a secondary weapon. I find it a bit too big and bulky and heavy. My friend recently got an ATP, and I got to try it out today. I really liked the weight and the feel of it. I was considering it as my next backup. But I also like the MKIV and the KZ75, but I feel asthough they are too expensive for me, because if I do finally sell my USP (no one wants to buy it), I would only have $120-$130. Unless there are any specific advantages to the MKIV besides the looks (mag cap is low for a backup), or to the KZ75. I like the simple design, but once again it costs a bit more than the ATP. (Weird though, I like the simple design, but I feel like its too simple, because I might need to attach a light to my gun.)

Anyway, if anyone has reasons I shouldn't go with the ATP, then please inform me :)

also, someone buy my pistol :P

Also, just as I submitted the post, I remembered how I know a few people who use a sniper and a KP9. Would it be worth it to save up for one of these, because I probably won't get a gun till after the winter.

it is now up to you to decide.  If money is an issue, the ATP is more than enough for you.  It is my secondary of choice right now, and it's lightweight and economical.  The MP9 is awesome but can get heavy if you have to carry both that gun and your sniper rifle, however it does have full auto.  Now, if you want the MP9 because it carries more rounds, well you can just buy FPG magazines which hold 48-50 rounds and use that instead and will fit in the ATP.  OR you can also wait for the ATP Auto, which will still take FPG mags and will give you the size of the ATP and will only cost just a little bit more than a standard ATP.  I hope this makes sense haha

I would run would an ATP. I have MKII & MKIV which I just love by the way but I always run to my trusty ATP.  The simplicity in external design has less things to break externally if you we're to accidentally drop it.

I agree with Viet and Niko...The ATP is my secondary of choice.  I love the gun!

I like the ATP, but if you want some full auto capability, you should wait for the ATP Auto... that thing is gonna kick some serious rear end. ATP is still a great gun, and has a 48 round extended (FPG) magazine capability should you need more rounds. Plus, the ATP is more lightweight than most other traditional sidearms like the M9, giving your rig just a little less weight.

Oh yeah. I was holding my USP, and I held my friends ATP. It's like a feather (which is weird, because they both are polymer frame and metal slide) compared to the USP.

I know M9 PTP is heavy, but I hear its great (says the welt on my neck given to me from a M9 PTP @ 150 feet with a .3g BB)

I'd personally stay away from the M9s, people have loved them but i had a whole bunch of reliablity problems. The ATP is a TANK, you can put that thing through anything and it will keep going. ATP 100%
