The thread concerning the worst handgun you've ever owned prompted my thinking on this.
I have dealt with three different Sig Mosquito's that would not function well with any ammo. Better with some ammo than others but not good enough to satisfy me with any ammo. Beyond trying different ammo I never tried to resolve the problem. So...I bought a fourth one! I absolutely love the ergonomics of the little gun and everything about them other than they don't function worth a fiddlers fart!
The way things are is that my want to is getting ahead of my can do! Meaning that I have completely worn out a knee. Climbing big poles with spikes strapped to your legs for an average of 58 hrs/week for 25 years will do that to a feller. I ended up with an office job but it was just a little to late for my running gear. June 29th I get a new titanium knee and only because they don't come in chrome molly! There are lots worse things that could happen than getting a new knee so I concider this a minor set back.
I am but 51 so that means there are still lots of fox/coyotes that I got to sneak up on. The rungs on my ladder stands aren't nearly worn out and a big ole whitetail can't drag itself to the truck. Therefore this knee thing has to happen.
Whether I likes it or not I am going to be somewhat confined for a little while and thats where this troublesome little Sig comes in. I have one of thoses fancy eatin trays that goes across the arms of my recliner and it will serve as my skeeter fixen workbench. I have an end table right next to my chair that will hold my gun fixen toolbox, dremel tool, ear muffs, 22 shells, a soda pop and my pain killers (pain killers bind me up something fierce so unless I'm throbbing clear up to noggin I ain't eatin them), From my chair to the tother end of the living room is 24 feet. Whats gonna be sitting there is a 4ft long x 4ft high x 12inch deep box made out of 3/4 inch plywood. This box will be filled with sand and have rubber matting on the front that will self seal after a 22 bullet goes through it thus preventing sand leakage (mother wouldn't go for that). I figure if I take a bed sheet and kinda hang one end of it over and tuck it behind the picture of Aunt Ethel and Uncle Clellie and then run the other end over to Bub's wedding picture and do the same it should hang in such a fashion as to keep the spent case from dinging up mothers fresh painted wall and they will fall in a neat little pile so all she'll have to do is bend over and suck em up with my shop vac. I'll even alert the neighbors on both sides just in case we both have our windows open at the same time. Trust me they ain't gonna think nothing of it!
I think I'll order a Wolf spring kit for my Single Six just in case the Sig gets fixed to soon or I bugger it up to the point where there ain't no hope for it! Stranger things have happened!
