    I have larger hands as well, and the SIG P239 did not work for me, even with Hogue grips.

    The Glock 19 and Glock 26 work very well, and they feel very comfortable in my hand. I did add Pearce grip extensions to my Glock 26 magazines so my pinkie did not hang, or dangle.

    My personal favorite is the HK P2000SK which in virgin form may be a little tight for three fingers, but it can be had with an extended magazine.

    Agree, check out the HK P2000sk. Great gun and very reliable.

    While i normally carry a Kahr ( or two ) and am pleased with them I will suggest that you look also at the recent german police trade in P7 HK. Fine compact pistols with enough meat thro the grip for even the largest hands , and while the supply's are drying up they are still amazingly affordable for a p7.
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
    We only begin to understand folks after we stop and think .

    Criminals are looking for victims, not opponents.

    HK

    Any of the compact or "SK" models. Kahr is WAY to difficult to field strip.

    Some are, yes, but a couple models are very easy to break down. Why they're so different is a good question.

    ??? They all break down in the same manner, and a retarded monkey can do it or any other creature with opposable thumbs; I don't see the problem with how Kahr's break down.

    i'd have to agree my kahr is 1000 times easier to take apart than my sw 1911pd.

    Some require a tool to push out the slide lock pin and some don't. Kahr sells the tool, which is hard to do without, taking down a K9, whereas a T9 comes apart with only a slight push with your thumb. My P45 is somewhere in the middle. Why the difference is the question, not the proceedure.

    +1 Springfield EMP.

    Unfortunately, it is about as difficult to find a EMP as it is a unicorn!
    I have had one on order for over 3 Months and no sign of it yet!
