I had no problems aside from 2 casings that didn't eject. I racked the slide and both flipped out.) One tidbit for you: the firearm will "fire" with the safety on. What I mean is you can pull the trigger and it will appear to fire but the hammer doesn't actually drop on the firing pin. I had a good laugh at myself when this happened; I thought it was the Remington ammo so I put some CCI Mini-Mags in it with the same result. I switched springs to no avail. That was when I realized that the safety was on.
      Thanks for the heads-up! Should have had a V-8, huh?

      Brought the new baby home this morning and took him out to the range this afternoon. It shot right where I aimed it which was mostly in the black and experienced 4 FTE's in 200 rounds. I did clean it before using. Will try Mini Mags and see if I can reduce the FTE's. I love the gun!!!

      I'm glad all went well. Because they fired without a problem, I bought 2 more boxes of the Remington 36gr hollow points @ $15.99 for a box of 525. It's actually a little faster than the CCI Mini-Mags. Don't you like the "controls" being in the same location as those on your P6?

      Yeah, it's identical and really sweet to clean. Where did you buy the hollow points?

      Picked up a couple hundred rounds of Mini Mags today and ran about 100 through her. No FTF's, No FTE's, nothing but good shooting.

      I bought a mosquito for my wife and Im unable to shoot the cheap stuff with it..going out later this week with some stingers and mini mags and hope to get better results.. I like the looks and feel of the little gun but I kinda think it stinks that you cant fire cheap ammo, its kinda the idea of buying a .22 CHEAP... oh well still a nice gun

      CCI, failures about 1 in 10, anything remington every 3-4 either FTF or FTE. Tried Winchester super x, fired about 500 with 0 problems. Going to stick with the Winchester for a while to see if it loosens up a bit.

      I love my Mosquito, it has a feel that I like and it is accurate. I read all the pros and cons before purchasing it and decided to buy one anyway. CCI makes quality ammo and that is all I shoot in the Skeeter with 0 problems. I keep hearing a rumor that Sig is coming out with a more expensive version which will be interesting if true. I would love to see a higher quality version, but in the mean time I'm enjoying this one.
