    Ever regret a purchase?

    I picked up a new P228 a few months back but due to schedule I haven't had a chance to actually use it.

    Well I went to visit my local super-holster shop K&D and he mentioned that I might want to look at something a bit smaller for carry such as a Para Carry 9.

    Those of you who have used a 228 for a long time, is it too much of a gun? I seem to remember statements about it was the perfect balance but I can't seem to find the thread any more.

    I have the P229 which is very close. I love it to death. It is great, conceals well with a OWB Bianchi Carry-Loc and a sweather/cover shirt/un-tucked tee.

    I sure couldn't regret my purchase of a 228 - in fact altho my carry is a heavy 226 ST - the 228 gets the lion's share of range time!! No way (for me) ''too much of a gun".

    I would be surprised if when you wring out your 228 you don't love it.

    I'm glad to say I don't think I have suffered regret from any gun bought - other than the dent to the pocket book at the time

    Never any regret over a gun.
    Plenty of regret over women.

    Regret it every day.

    I have a Kimber Ultra Carry 3" version. It has shot flawlesslely in the 5 or 6 years that i've owned it. But I traded my Sig 220 in for this. Even though there is a HUGE difference in size, I just prefer the 220 in every way.

    Thinking about it, I think my main problem is the safety on the 1911 type pistol. Now that it's gone, I prefer the Sig's no safety and DA/SA type trigger. And I prefer a bigger pistol, even for EDC.

    No regrets. When I purchase it's for a reason and with my wife you better buy the right one cause it may be your last purchase. Of course she said that 4 pistols ago.

    I'd have to say it was a S&W AirLite .357mag. Way too light for the range time that I think every weapon needs to have to feel good about them. I should have rented one at the range - my fault.

    The Sig P228 is one of those "Smart Mans" guns. Military designated M11 and was the quentisential "FED GUN" for years with FBI and SECRET SERVICE.

    I've owned mine for years and it is still the most reliable handgun in my safe.

    As or concealability, it's not that big, but then again it's certainly not a "pocket gun" either. It coneals well with most IWB holsters and paddle holsters that I used over the years.

    Depending on your mode of dress it may or may be not the most concealable pistol out there. I wear alot of cargo type pants, and dress slacks. I use a Kramber hosehide IWB and most of time, especially time of year, it is easily concealable with a jacket. In fact I prefer to jacket up most of the time. I don't want to have to raise a shirt or untuck anything to get to my pistol.

    The Sig P228 is one of the best guns going.

    i paid 2700 dollars for a new 20 gauge merkel side by that is absolutely beautiful, and i cant hit the proverbial side of a barn with it, for no apparent reason. the stock fits okay, etc.
    now, i realize this is not a handgun, but... i do regret it in the sense that i could have done better stuff with the money! but man, what a beauty. fantastic walnut, and i am a sucker for pretty walnut.
    God Bless
