In most discussions of various handguns and how they fit individual shooters, it seems the topic of hand size comes up in nearly every thread. Some posters say that they have larger hands so Gun A doesn't fit them, while others say they have smaller hands so Gun B is perfect. Some have mentioned glove size as a reference. Another poster just mentioned that he has large hands and measured from his wrist to his fingertip and it was 8". I consider myself to have large hands and did the same measurement and it was also 8". Is that the standard measurement to determine if you have large hands? Is there a different measuring standard to determine your hand size? I just thought it would be helpful if there was a standard measurement to reference in regards to hand size and whether or not certain handguns fit others differently. Of course there are many other factors in the individuality of the human hand such as finger length, palm size, etc that determine whether or not a particular handgun will feel good.
