Default handguns for big hands?

I'm just getting into guns and I don't have many places to shop around and test them. I have big hands and am afraid they will swallow most handguns. I've shot a couple and it never felt right holding them. My question is..... What would be good first gun for me?

Yeah, if your hands are so big that your worried this much about it, the 92 might be the way to go.

Most any full size revolver, add a Hogue grip or the like.

Double stack pistols, Glock 21 comes to mind.

You can also customize the grips on a 1911.

It's more of a comfort issue. But I will definitely check into everything. Thank you.
