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.
Be Observant and Be Safe.
Current: DW V-Bob 1911, S&W 442, Springfield XD9sc, XDm9,
and Glock G26, G19, G23C, and SIG P226-40 TT, and Ruger GP-100, and Beretta 92FS

In no particular order:
S&W 3913 or corresponding value line version the 908S
CW9 is a good choice!!! Steve48
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.
Glock 19 or S&W M&P

If you carry in Condition 3, you have two empty chambers. One in the weapon...the other between your ears.
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.Kahr is WAY to difficult to field strip
i'd have to agree my kahr is 1000 times easier to take apart than my sw 1911pd.

+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!
