I have all types of hand guns. Most of them are too big for concealed carry. I have really big hands being 6'6" tall if I were standing.

Can you recommend a concealed carry weapon with guts for a big hand?

Thanks,

Keith

I have big hands too. I recommend a staggered magazine to add some meat to it like a G19 or G23 and if you can get it to stay in your hands G26. Stay away from slim single stack guns like the Shield and G43. I know that contradicts what I'm buying in the other thread but that's because I carry in basketball shorts and swimming trunks and the extra weight pulls them down. In jeans or shorts full capacity pistol, 12-15ish rounds is no issue. It will help these guys help you if you have a caliber you would like unless youre open to any. I have CC the G19 and G26 for many years and both do fine. I have to have extended mag for G26.

I would still recommend a shield. I have decent sized mits and though it feels a little thin it is far more comfortable to carry than a double stack. It does not effect my ability to shoot and I still enjoy range time with it. There are some grip sleeves that can be added that add a little width to the palm region I will be adding one to my shield shortly. I feel the most important part to a cc gun is comfort while holstered as that is where it will be 99.9 % of the time.

Do you know which grip you're getting for the Shield? They are thin for big hands. Was gonna stipple so didn't really think about adding sleeve. Maybe a Hogue or something?

S&W SD40, 14+1 and it should fit your hands nicely. Not as discrete as the Shield which I will add is a great pistol, but carries well and does not have to be babied.

I can't remember the brand. Little jacks has one on a shield and it felt great, going to have him order me one along with apex duty carry. I bought the shield with night sights and 3 mags, will have 325 in it once my rebate comes in. Tallon also sells grip stickers designed for the gun my brother swears by them. Loves the grip they add.

I have a couple of S&W "bodyguard specials" in 38+p. When I grab and point the barrel is pointing up from where I would naturally aim the gun if you understand what I mean.

Any of the 45's fit naturally and the aim is right on. I was an avid shooter when the indoor range was open in the 90's. 3 times a week. I haven't been to any indoor range now available. Its a hobby I want to start again.

Then I didnt have to aim, I could point and shoot very well. I dont have a concealed carry but will get one.

I would like to have a Velcro mount under the seat of my wheelchair for grab and go.

Any of the new Glocks have the adjustable grips, I carry a 26 now (use to carry a 27). I tried carrying a 19 but it just stuck too far out and was wayyyyy noticeable. You have several spots of concealment in a wheelchair so you could probably get away w/ a 22/23 no problem...

I would say that since you are carrying under your wheelchair you should be able to carry something bigger than most people. I would find something with decent capacity that "points" well to you. I have heard that statistically self defense shootings are only a few rounds but since you have limited mobility I would look for something with at least 12 rounds or so. Glock 19, Smith and Wesson M&P, or M&P compact would be some that I would look at. Lots of options out there these days.
