    does anyone have any experience with these? i was at the range this weekend and was checking it out in the displays-- holy shit that's a small hand gun. i'm thinking of picking one up but i've heard that there are slight reliability issues (my firearm history is strictly bolt-action.):noes:

    From what I hear they can be picky about which ammo they like, have to find one that feeds reliable and stick with it, but I've also heard that its not as much of a problem on the newer models :dunno: I plan to add one to my collection eventually but not untill I can get a suppressor for it.

    I heard the mosquito has issues with certain ammo too :dunno: But I would take the mosquito or p22 long before the ruger

    rugers are no fun! it's like a hand cannon with out the kick.. i'm a sheer nostaligia lovin' kinda guy
    thats' good to know about the ammo tl100squid, the gun's so affordable... it's not that bad looking either. looks kinda flimsy in person i.m.o. but it's a lot easier to handle than a big ass solid steel bull barrel...

    Been researchin alot on them. I've heard plenty stories about reliability issues also but like squid said the newer ones seem a little better. I'm definatley going to get one cause it will be perfect to let my girl practice with.

    I've seenem but haven't really handled one, I do have a P99 and its real well built and the ergo's on it are great, the 22 is quite a bit smaller though but as long as it feels comfortable in your hand go for it. Looks alot better the the ruger too IMO.

    Mine has had some issues with ammo, but no more than I've heard of the p22. Once you get it broken in, a lot of the problems go away. I've had issues mostly with stingers, and some federal HV ammo I bought in bulk. Once I went back to mini-mags, thunderbolts & the occasional velocitor, haven't had any issues.

    edit: and I'll whore out a pic of the mosquito(green) and the 232, while I'm at it

    well, all i'm saying is the p22 looks like robokid's gun...
    but it fits the criteria i'm looking for in a new hand piece, +more... price is pretty darn affordable i.m.o.
