I just put the Sig P226 on consignment this weekend. It was my first gun. I couldn't stand the fact that it would start to fail to go into battery after 500 rounds or so. It was too big to carry concealed anyway, I carry the CZ P-01 now.
Incidentally, the Buddhist temple that I go to occasionally bans firearms on the premises. That doesn't make sense to me. Armed self-defense is a profound service to one's Buddha-nature.
