I posted this under "Hunting", but y'all will be pleased to know that the SlixShots, although not the ultimate or final cure, brought Mighty Mite's reliability up to where I'm satisfied with it for now, so I took her out for her "baptism" in the mountains. I left Bessie at home, as I didn't want to face Grizz with a shot load, so I took the old double (called "Bloody Nose") with a ball in one barrel, and a turkey load in the other. Usually if I take Bess up North for Turkey, I'll carry a heavy caliber revolver. But it was time to officially graduate the '62 to working gun status. !!!! So yeah, she felt good and nice and light on the left hip. I like that I can carry lots of bullets in the civil-war cap pouch. And again, although one cylinder full/five shots is not the greatest grounds for an evaluation, I could tell that the SlixShots do work well. "Mighty Mite" says: "Thanks for listening"!!
