Beretta Nano-best CCW in Mico 9mm for me. Love to shoot this gun that feels like I am shooting 380 ammo out of it. Soft shooter low muzzle flip.

Revolver for big hands

I have big hands and am looking for a revolver with a fair sized grip. A pistol I can grip with 3 fingers. I have a GP100 SS 4" but wanted something a little smaller. How is the LCRX 3" grip in big hands? Other pistols?

My paws are giant but I liked the SP101 and Kimber K6S best. Bought the latter. LCR felt nice too, but I wanted all-steel. Try then all and see what you think. I don't like grips with finger-grooves, and none of the guns I tried had them.

You can get any of them with 3" barrels now, but I needed pocket-carry and wanted DAO. If that's not in the cards for you, there are lots of good choices, including some of the S&W Performance Center J Frames.

I also have a GSG 1911/22 and the grip is larger compared to the ones I mentioned, but not awkward, same for the grip on my HK Compact 45.

The FMK is my favorite, but we'll see after today when I get back from the range with the Bersa.
I liked shooting the Bersa so much I bought another one, a Bersa Thunder 380 Plus, holds 15 rounds!!!

Beretta PX4 with Talon grip tape is my old friend. I'm soon to retire this old workhorse and replace it with a Beretta PX4.
Second for me is Ruger SP101 357 with Hogue Monogrip. The grip was just replaced with a Diamond Pro, so that will take some range time to adjust to.

Sig P239 SAS Two Tone in 357Sig. Only the Sig P229, also in 357Sig, comes as close.

I like the LCR 22 WMR. Along with the DeSantos pocket holster it works for me.

Have to agree with Ruger6. My CZ 75 Compact just feels like confidence.

Have not done it but I'll bet a Colt Python with a 4 inch barrel would feel GREAT if I owned it! It would have to, or I would change grips until it did. :-))

Can't forget my Kimber 45 1911 4 inch CDP.

Browning High Power

Shot lots of handguns growing up and never thought about how they felt. Then an uncle handed a Browning High Power to me try and I knew the shape and fit was right.

Next came the S&W model 66 with a 4" barrel. After market grips, a combat style trigger and the fit was right for holster duty with the police.

The new Vaquero is at its best for CAS with a 4.6 inch barrel and wood grips.

Just got an SP 101 with a three inch barrel in 327 fed mag, but still need to shot it, but it is promising.

Last is the Browning DBA 380. Not a micro gun, but fits my hand and point instinctively.

So what are we doing with the best fitting gun?

Am waiting on a holster to carry but the CZ P01 is the best feeling gun so far and best feeling by a long shot, hope it carries as good as it feels.

Then a JFrame followed by a SP101 that my son carries feels good even as heavy as it is.
