Good Concealed Weappn for Big Hands


New member
sig all the way

I have large hands as well... if you want a gun that will fire perfect every time check out the sig sauer. I have a p239 and a p229. The p229 is a double stack so its a little thicker. Both conceal well for me. Only down side is they are a little pricy but trust me worth every penny!

Is there a huge difference in recoil, and which one is preferred for EDC,
I have both, the 27 being a 40 will have more snap or recoil, but nothing bad, the 19 being a 9mm and a bit larger gun will have less recoil, and be easyer to shoot, my wife don't like the 27 but I carry it quite often, with just the two choices you mention, for EDC I would have to pick the 19

Headless Thompson Gunner

Sounds like you all could just reach out and crush somebody's skull. Guns schmuns.

Roland was a warrior from the Land of the Midnight Sun
With a Thompson gun for hire, fighting to be done
The deal was made in Denmark on a dark and stormy day
So he set out for Biafra to join the bloody fray

Through sixty-six and seven they fought the Congo war
With their fingers on their triggers, knee-deep in gore
For days and nights they battled the Bantu to their knees
They killed to earn their living and to help out the Congolese

Roland the Thompson gunner...

His comrades fought beside him - Van Owen and the rest
But of all the Thompson gunners, Roland was the best
So the CIA decided they wanted Roland dead
That son-of-a-gun Van Owen blew off Roland's head

Roland the headless Thompson gunner
Norway's bravest son
Time, time, time
For another peaceful war
But time stands still for Roland
'Til he evens up the score
They can still see his headless body stalking through the night
In the muzzle flash of Roland's Thompson gun
In the muzzle flash of Roland's Thompson gun

Roland searched the continent for the man who'd done him in
He found him in Mombassa in a barroom drinking gin
Roland aimed his Thompson gun - he didn't say a word
But he blew Van Owen's body from there to Johannesburg

Roland the headless Thompson gunner...
The eternal Thompson gunner
still wandering through the night
Now it's ten years later but he still keeps up the fight
In Ireland, in Lebanon, in Palestine and Berkeley
Patty Hearst heard the burst of Roland's Thompson gun and bought it

Try a Ruger .45 or a Sig .45. My husband has large hands and he has one of each. You can easily add hogue grips for fit. Hubby put a pair on his G19 and he really likes the way it fits now. Some handguns come with interchangeable palm swells for customization.

Generally speaking single stack auto-loaders are easier to conceal than wheel guns of the same caliber. And 1911 slides are usually narrower than other auto loader slides. But the grip is the biggest challenge...both the length and the width. If you are comfortable a slim grip 1911 you might check out slim grip commander. Also, budget permitting, the Nighthawk Custom T3 has a commander-length barrel on a compact frame. But the frame has a slick little magwell that provides a little more grip area for the palm of your hand.

My hands are large, but not as some as the others I have read here. I must use xtra large work gloves and the fit tight. I carry the Ruger SR9 and it feels like part of my hand.

I have fairly large hands but a regular 1911 fits well. For someone who needs bigger, go with a curved MS housing. It can make a difference. Or you can go with a double stacked .45.
