+ 1 for the 228.... I purchased one about 8 years ago and its been my CCW since then WITHOUT fail...ever..! As for a quality holster, I have a IWB Highnoon Holster that I love... its broken in and about 10 minutes are having it on, I forget its there... that is until I need to go to the bathroom.. My other advice would be to get a good quality belt... believe it or not, that makes all the difference..... good luck in your choice....
