    New here and to guns.

    Hello all,
    bought my first gun a few weeks ago an XD(m) 3.8 9mm compact.
    The gun shoots great.
    Then i bought the wife a Sig sauer mosquito .22 on the 3rd (in pink) that gun is picky about ammo but with the stuff it likes, It shoots very well.

    I support the OC movement and for our rights to carry, either OC or CC.
    any how, nice site here and some good information.


    Be safe and shoot straight.

    Edit: forgot to mention, I live in parkland.

    Lye, WELCOME ! Be at the coffee meet @ 10 Bridgeport & 100th. A few rules, my friend:
    1. Newbies, as we call them, must buy our security person coffee. This is really no big thing.
    2. Everyone knows that I've been admiring the XDM. Then you go out and buy one? The security person IS going to have a talk with you!
    3. Bring your wife.
    4. I forgot what was rule #4
    5. I see by your post that you were up pretty early. That is fine, but do not make noise and wake us up!

    Welcome and have fun!

    Welcome Lye!

    I have the very same Mosquito. Picky it is, but I have found that it loves CCI MiniMags. Has that been your experience? I also wish I would have gotten the one with the threaded barrel. Looks like we very well might be able to shoot through our suppressors soon.

    Anyway, enjoy coffee and watch out for Squeak! He is short, so you might miss him in a crowd.
    Keep Calm and Carry On,

    Snarly

    I don't know of a semi-auto .22 that doesn't like Mini-Mags. I know of a few that like something better, but every semi .22 I ever had much to do with was hella reliable with Mini-Mags. gold standard kinda ammo

    I have also found that it loves CCI Mini Mags, I did try Blazer stuff and it did not like it at all.
    here is her best target @20 ft


    here is a few of mine, 45 rounds of 9mm per target. @ 15ft



    these are 12x12 targets, they are kind of neat easy to see.
