If you don't mind me asking, where did you purchase and how much did you pay? I've been looking at getting a Mosquito myself to teach the wife and plink around with. I have yet to visit any local shops though.

Thanks guys, I fell bad that she's always asking about my guns, and try to learn everything about them, but she can never pull the slide back, she can on my Walther P22, so i thought id get her this.

To answer onikage, i bought it at River City the only place I buy guns, my guy Don and Dave always come thru for me, when i saw it online i had them order it, and got it a few days later. I paid a little under 400 for it. They don't carry these in stock, so you'll have to order it.

Thanks for the reply! Let us know how it goes once she's put some rounds through it. I hear Mosquito's have historically given some users issues when they didn't clean it properly before use and didn't stick to feeding it CCI Minis.

Haha. Same here. I showed this thread to my wife since she'll be learning on the Mosquito in the near future. She was very adamant about me not buying the pink one and sticking with all black. ;)

The roster is for model designations like my G21SF-STD

they have a two tone steel/polymer listed, I'm pretty sure the pink part is the polymer so he should be covered :)

Those are the same reasons I bought this guy. The wife had a hard time on my PT99 so I went with the Sig Trailside becasue a local shop had it on the cheap used. So far I am the only one that has shot it since I bought it :D It is fun. I don't like rapid fire, but with such little recoil it was hard not to just blow through the mag!

I really like the pink, at least in the picture. If it wasn't such a girly associated color . . .

Thanks Sirr6 - NOT! :(
My wife just looked over my shoulder and saw your picture of the pink Mosquito - "Oh what a cuter!, a pink gun! Is it a .22? COOOOOL!"

That is going to cost me!

that's Mosquito is a DOLL!
do they make that color in their centerfires? I know it's PINK but damn, that's the pistol I'm gonna teach my baby sister to shoot with. She will go nuts over that!

Has anyone negated the slide saefty on the Mosquito?
