I am currently carrying a Ruger Security 9, which is a 15+1 double stack pistol with a 4" barrel. It’s a very nice gun and would hate to get rid of it, but I am having a few issues with it.
Given the size/shape/condition of my hands, I’m thinking a single stack pistol might fit me better. One of these days soon I will make a run through my LGS (Whittaker’s) to put my hands on some and see how they feel. But before I do that, could I get some advice and suggestions from this fine and knowledgeable group?
To start off, let me state some preferences. I prefer hammer fired over striker fired, I like an external safety, +/-4" barrel, and a grip long enough for a full grip. These aren’t necessarily absolute deal breakers, just preferences.
Also, I have been warned off of Remington pistols, but I’m not sure what the specific objections are. Anyone know more about them?
Thanks for anything you care to share. Thoughtful reviews, experience based suggestions, and two-bit opinions gratefully considered.
