I could write your same story. My Centurion sits on my nightstand and I just picked up a P225. Also have a P229. All three are equal in accuracy, Should say "very accurate", and well made. The best one is the P229, the nicest is the P225, but the coolest is the Beretta. My Centurion is a first year production with now dim night sights, date code BB. Great pick up on the 228, it's a real classic.
