Suggestions for first time buyer with large hands?
I'm 6'6" and have pretty large hands. I'm looking for some specific brands/models to check out, stuff that will be available at major chains like Dicks Sporting Goods, Bass Pro Shops, Cabellas, or maybe just a local gunshop.
I've grown up around guns, hunting with shotguns and rifles my whole life, but never really messed with pistols very much other than target shooting a few times with relatives. I've shot a .357 revolver and a few 9mm pistols. In general I'd say the revolver was more comfortable, but I think that's just because it fit my hands better.
I want the gun just to have for home defense and occasional target shooting just to keep my skills sharp. I wont be using it very often. I also want something that I'm not going to have to worry about jamming if I dont touch it for a year or two and need it in an emergency. So I'm guessing a revolver is probably better for this situation?
Need to keep the price to an absolute minimum without having to buy a piece of junk.
