Default Snubby for big hands

Hello everyone,

I am new to this site and let me start by saying it is the most beautiful Gun forum I have ever seen. I love the way its put together and what not. Now on to the subject at hand. I read the post by Canebrake and just want to throw that out their. Now I am looking for a first SD weapon, I love revolvers, the looks, they are just beautiful!

I prefer double action revolvers. I never shot a handgun of any kind but know my calibers well and fully what any gun is capable of. Now, having said that I was wondering if a .38 is okay for me to start off with. I have been held up 3 times coming home from work. Its a 2 mile walk at 9-10 at night. I am tired of being walked on and scared for my life.

The only thing I carry are 2 fold out knives. One is almost like a switchblade, but not quit. Anyways it does little good when your getting chased by a guy way bigger than you (I am 6'3 300lbs and yes many are bigger than me) chasing me down with guns. I NEED ALL OF YOUR HELP! I need a concealable weapon that will be ok for my hands (fat Italian here)...lol. Already I have seen some guns like the S&W models 442, 637, 638, Ruger LCR, and Taurus Models 856, 85, 850 CIA, and 851 on the net....any suggestions for my big hands?

This works well for me:



Vintage S&W 29-2

Yea, its a little hard to conceal but you won't lose it in your big hand!

And concealment goes out the window once you throw the loud switch!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

There is nothing wrong with a .38 spl for PD! Even better is .38 spl +P.

I have large hands and my Ruger Elsie Ahrrrr (LCR) is a great summer carry.

It is also available now in .357 mag, should you want more stones. I think that would be a handful.

If you have any experience with DA revolver's trigger stacking you will be amazed with the new Ruger CAM-ACTION DA loud switch.

With a clip-draw and fully loaded this gun weighs less than one pound.

It will serve you well for your dilemma.
