so many options....
 
So in a nutshell im in the market for a new sidearm. I have an NAA black widow to carry at work and for deep concealment. Now i want something that's a centerfire. Im leaning towards a semi auto. It needs to still be totally concealable but large enough for me to get a full grip on. Im 6'5" 315lbs, open to any suggestions

Should have mentioned my price cap is 600

I would have though you could not cock and fire those little 22's if size was a problem. Go to a gun shop and see what fits YOUR needs. You are the onlu one that can answer that question. A great gun in a borderline holsster will make you think you choice wrong. A great holster to the mix and suddenly everthing comes together. Haveing cc'd for well over 20 years I have a box full of junk. End up with a comp-tac. One full grip, thin pistol for you to try is a TP sersies kahr or a 1911officer model if your hands are that big . Maybe a glock or m&p or xd. All trial and error. 600 bucks will cover all of these in a good lgs..

Double action or single? Striker fire? Manual hammer? Manual safety? Single or double stack magazine? Could suggest all kinds of things, but need to know more about preference and what you shoot best before anything really suitable can be recommended.

Work- a local fast food joint that will stay unnamed for a few reasons.
Deep concealment- no printing or showing in any way shape or fashion (due to the no guns policy at before mentioned place of employment)

Im really not picky i don't have a whole lot of shooting experience with pistols. I have a single action revolver and have shot a full size 1911 and a ruger src 40. I liked the ruger alot but i was also thinking of a commander sized 1911. Planning on getting a crossbred super tuck for whatever i end up getting

At 6'5, 315 lbs you could probably conceal most anything you want, but consider a single stack 9mm since you do have the no carry restriction at work.

Something to think about. In the type of work you do I would imagine it's fairly close quarters. You need to be concerned about people bumping into you, too.
