    No regrets here either...just some regrets over selling some...

    Sure, Ive regreted plenty of gun purchases. Ones that were bought with a specific purpose in mind, only to find that it doesnt work for me.

    One gun that does work, and works well is the 228. Its my choice for a carry gun. I like them so much that Ive started a collection of them. Its not a very exciting collection, as they are all pretty much the same. I want them so that when I wear one out, or want to tinker, I always have a new one waiting on me. I've never passed one up with a decent price on it, I always buy them.
    The 228 has a cult like following of gun fighters in the know. If you truly regret the purchase, I will buy yours from you.

    I will only say that I traded a certain gun for another gun with some extra cash.

    I've regretted it ever since. I won't mention the brand or model of the gun that I traded nor will I mention the brand and model of which I traded it for. (Dont want any flames)

    Put it this way. I should have had my head examined.

    I bought a Sig Mosquito, what a mess of a pistol, didn't work well at all.

    A CZ 82 Paid a bit of a premium price to throw a bone to a buddy and got a shot out piece of crap. If all the parts would work it would have been a nice pistol.

    Walther P22 Similar to the Mosquito...just not a quality piece by any measure.

    Can't say I've ever had a bad buy. Most times the guy at th gun store lets me know how good or bad a gun is from what he's heard from others. I almost bought a Kel-Tec .380 for a good deep concealment gun (for at work) but he said they were cheap and if I'm going to spend that much I might as well get the Taurus .38 which I ended up buying.

    Bought a .380 S&W Sigma years ago. Sure didn't take me long to get rid of that thing. It would stove pipe all the time. Also, had a S&W 22A Target that gave me problems. Hmmm, starting to notice a trend with the manufacturer here.

    Bought a brand new G19 earlier this year. After putting 30 rounds through it I had already made up my mind on selling it.

    Walther P22... second biggest POS I've ever owned.

    What little experience I have had with the p228, you will not be disappointed. The only other compact Sig 9 I liked a little better was the p225 single stack.
    As far as the current FED gun, from what I read it is a combo of SIG, GLOCK and HK. The Air Marshals and Secret Service carry p229 (newer p228) in .357 Sig, the US Marshals carry Glock .40. ICE is a mix of HK and Sig of varying calibers according to the contract. FBI is .40 Glock, except for HRT and SWAT, which carry SA Custom 1911. That is just the ones I know of.

    Llama 1911 style 9mm, Llama 1911 style .45, Jennings .25, H&R single shot 20 ga., Curtis Lemay .45 auto.

    I regret selling a whole lot more of them than I regret buying. For clarification I'm not talking about the ones above. :)

    I regret purchasing an Armscor 1911. After 3000 rounds I had to have the feed ramp welded and repolished because the soft metal had worn down so much. Traded.

    I bought a DSA STG58 FAL. It is the only regret I have. Mainly because I can't afford to shoot it as much as I would like to, and for the price I paid I should have spent another hundred and bought an M1A

    Big regret after selling my S&W Model 29. No regret for buying any guns though.
