Uncle Mike's - Fingerless gloves

The padding in the palm really helps during those extended shooting sessions.

I got a pair of weight lifting gloves at wally world and they work great, at about a third of the cost. Just throw away the one you do not shoot with. Love mine

The aggressive grip on the PT145 can wear on my hands. Rather than trying to wrap the grip in a covering... I've left it plain for carry and bought a set of the weight lifting gloves at WalMart too. They have an extra layer of leather in the palm for padding. So I can shoot all I want at the range, and still have the smallest "print" when I carry the gun.

I have several different pairs that I rarely wear for regular shooting, even in bad weather. Although I still do practice wearing gloves sometimes just to keep the feel, just incase.

C'mon ladies... when Mr. Bad Guy is breaking into your home, are you gonna have time to slip on your precious piggy protectors?

I suppose you have driving gloves, golfing gloves, and piano gloves too. ;)



J/K - I have a pair of these (gotta protect my artists hands):

:D :D :D

I suppose weight lifting gloves would work too, with all the padding and such.

An old pair of cycling gloves do the trick.

I sometimes use Driving Gloves, particularly with my AR15A2, or in Winter, other wise not.

Shooting Gloves?

I was curious if anyone here uses shooting gloves and if so which ones.

I am merging this thread into another "shooting gloves" thread that was resurrected after a 13 year death. DRE

I've never messed with them. They may be comfortable, and I wouldn't put aside a chance to at least try them out, but I guess my mind keeps thinking that if I'm in a self defense situation, I won't have time to put on a pair of gloves. I'm not saying that's the right way to think about it, it's just the way I think about it.

I use Mossy Oak lightweight gloves for shooting in the cold. Tip; buy one size smaller than you normally wear. Cost about $10 at Walmart. Good gripping surface, but light enough to handle loading magazines.

I've messed with them. The best ones utilize vibration dampening material in the palm area to stave off carpal tunnel syndrome. I use industrial fingerless gloves meant for working with air chippers, impact hammers and the like. They can isolate the sting of recoil in a big way. No sense in beating yourself while up trying to work up your handloads.

Tons of gloves are out there. Here's a place you can start.

I was just about to post something similar, now I don't have to. :cool:

I don't think there's anything wrong with wearing them, I just generally am shooting carry guns when I'm at the range so I don't want to wear gloves with them.

Different gloves for different activities, motorcycles, horses, mechanical work, etc. I shoot with them all, you never know when you will find a snake. I may not have time to take them off.

Different strokes for different folks.. as I will never have the need for EDC and as a pianist and organist of absolutely no international standing, I use gloves fairly often. These are my choice, I think they cost me $20.00. Whenever we travel to the US there are two items that go into my case before anything else. 1. My Peltor Sporttak ear defenders. 2. Those gloves.

I keep a pair of Mechanix Wear shooting gloves in my range bag that I bought on Amazon. They do help me with certain pistols and they also help with preventing a sore trigger finger depending on how much you plan to shoot.

I have never donned gloves to shoot, but often think that I should practice wearing my leather thinsulate lined gloves at the range to get the feel of shooting with them if I ever needed to deploy my handgun while out in the cold working or walking the dog. I shouldn't think it would be a problem, but then I really don't know because I've not tried it.
