    I have concluded I much prefer pistols with a larger than typical grip. I don't have Gorilla mits, but my hands are fairly large, however, my fingers are long.

    For instance, a CZ-97 is perfect for me, most pistols with oversize grips (Roco's on a 1911) fit me wonderfully. Which pistols have a fairly large perch? These are the ones I need to look at.

    Beretta 92FS and Walther P88 w/wood grips are my two largest. A Sig P6 with a set of Marschal wood grips is pretty substantial.

    Glock 20, 21 models even the SF models are pretty big. Sig 220 is also pretty big. My CZ97 is almost too big for me but it's my most accurate handgun right now

    I think the one on the right will do you just fine. The other two have small, medium and large backstraps, but the DE is just, well, freakin' huyooge.

    Unfortunately, not suitable for cc unless you're Mighty Joe Young.

    Try a Ruger P89, they seem to be on the larger side.

    Say What???? This gun actually feels cramped in my mitts. The gun as a whole is typical Ruger clunky, but the grip is very thin, very comfy for small hands.

    The G20 and G21 seem to be a little on the thick side IMO. I was interest in the FNP45 until I was cautioned by some that some consider it to have a thick grip as well.

    HK USP. I'm a little on the large size, the USP fits like a glove.

    ...RUGER P90 with Hogue grooved grips is a handful....P89 with the same grip is, too...

    Yeah, the USP has a fairly large grip circumference, and is a nice pistol. Just don't get the DAO variant.

    I think the P226 elite with the rosewood grips are pretty good sized.

    +1 on the Walther P88 or the P88C. If you dress them with Nill wooden grips, you've got yourself a real handful; you've also got yourself one of the finest 9mm handguns on the planet, IMO.

    Beretta/Taurus 92 and Glock come to mind for me.

    EAA Witness Elite Match...It's large in any caliber they offer. You can also swap out calibers easily. 550ish and a great single action alternative to a 1911 or BHP
