It works great on minor abrasions and scraps. Till I read this post I never thought about putting a can in my ...

I don't own a P226 but I do have a P220 and that is the gun I'll be strapping on if SHTF. The gun seen thousands of rounds with out a problem.

As mentioned the price difference isn't that big between the various calibers. So I wouldn't let that be a hinderers.

With my Lansky I've been using 20 degrees for pretty much all my knifes. Don't know if I should have been using a different angle or what. It was kind of hard to match some of the angles due to years of abuse on the knifes and bad sharpening jobs I did before I got my Lansky system.
