Gloves?

How many of you folks shoot with gloves?
I did not till recently, this is dealing with hand guns. My SIL gave me a pair of batting gloves, they fit very tight though the leather is quite thin and tactile feeling is amazing. Not only does the ancient 1911 not pinch me but racking anything is so much easier.

I never could get used to wearing gloves when shooting. I have tried, but just don't like it. Lots of folks used to wear them in cold weather while shooting CAS. I have big hands to start with, so adding gloves makes those trigger guards REAL small, especially on a SAA pistol!

I've tried to get used to gloves and handguns. Probably spent upwards of 300$ in the last calendar year on various gloves, (if they dont work for shooting they go to work and get used up there).

Have some smartwool liners that do alright on calm days, but provide very little protection with any wind. With my glocks have found about 4 that dont seem to interfere with them, definitely don't seem to help with my mark 3 trigger and a worked over smith and Wesson.

Keep in mind my neuropathy probably makes it a little more pronounced than it is for most.

So far my best is a set of expedition mittens from mountain headwear, they are so warm that it only takes a half minute for cold finger recovery. They sit on my table and get put on as soon as the shot string is done. They go on and off pretty easy.


I'm all ears for other suggestions to try, it's a balmy 21 right now, and it won't be warmer when the range re opens in january.

The batting gloves are like a second skin.....like a golf glove...very thin material. Have not had any problem getting my finger in a trigger guard. Canít believe how much better grip I can get on a slide.

In early November we had some single digit days that were really brisk when windchill was factored in. Gloves sound like decent idea in that scenario.

Did try some when rattling off way to many 500 smith rounds, though maybe it would save our hands..... it didn't. Only allowed us to shoot the pistol so hot it made the hogue grips all gummy.

Golf gloves.
Like batting gloves meant to act as a second skin.
The winter versions are a bit warmer.

Do glomitts count?



I'll use these if shooting when it's well below freezing. If it's below zero cold I'll drop one of the little hand warmer packs in the mitten part to speed warm up between strings/mags.

I ordered a pair of motorcycle gloves without fingers and they work real well for shooting. I needed them for moving around in my wheelchair during Steel Challenge Matches and found that they were comfortable and forgiving when shooting.

Many moons ago I used to hunt in NGa.I had my wife cut the trigger finger off at the palm and attach heavy leather shoelaces to it and the glove and would simply slide the cut piece off when it was time to pull the trigger on an unsuspecting buck

Another 2 thumbs up for pop top Thinsulate mittens.

https://www.amazon.com/Hot-Shot-Bull...6849781&sr=8-6

I've had a pair for 20 years that I love for cold weather shooting/whatever. I took a razor knife and cut a little slit where the thumb of the mitten on my trigger hand meets the main body of the mitten. When it's time to shoot, velcro back the top flap and pop your thumb out. Then cover up as soon as you're done. Works good!
