Sweet look!
Shooting Gloves for Handguns - General Handgun Discussion


Two new shooting gloves! On the left side of the picture are Blackhawk tactical Hellstorm 1/2 finger gloves. On the right are Polar-Ex sniper gloves. These are warm fleece and my new "go to" winter gloves. It can flip over a mitten to cover the fingers and has a slot for thumb access too. These gloves are both very well designed and recommended. Underneath and used as a prop, is a green dry box holding 500 45 ACP cartridges.

Fingerless gloves are better for shooting, because you retain dexterity to pick up an individual cartridge to reload magazines. You can also feel and manipulate the safeties better and the magazine release buttons. Most importantly, you retain better control on the trigger to feel when it will break, so you don't fire by accident trying to fit a fat glove into the trigger well. Lastly, the glove also acts as a cushion to absorb some of the recoil too.

Hey Marthor, I like your blackhawks. Do they make your hands sweat and what did they run you? Thanks bro, Ed

I wore them 4 hours driving and no sweat.
I found them at retail for $36.
The link on the previous page has them $25 on Amazon.

I try to practice how I'd fight, and don't regularly wear gloves, so I don't practice with gloves .

The only time I'd wear gloves specifically for shooting would be for a hunting handgun shooting heavy loads. Basically, if the only time I'd ever use that gun would be in a hunting (i.e. Planned) situation where I could put on gloves as needed, then I'd practice with gloves.


Now, in the winter I've shot with gloves on because those are the gloves I'd be wearing during my commute. I have also shot with my "general purpose" gloves on just to make sure it works with them. But, I don't have any shooting-specific gloves that I wear primarily to the range.

These arent shooting gloves although they are slim enough to shoot in them. They are called the "defender II" made by Hatch.. I had two different pairs while i was a LEO. they have 8oz of steel shot in the knuckle portion. They will ring someones bell,i know...

I do not have a dog in this fight and not out to make friends or influence people. Yet I have over 50 yrs of shooting experience, over 38 yrs of LEO experience as well as testifying in hundreds of cases as to the reconstruction and what went right or wrong.

We wear hearing protection when shooting and I suggest everyone do so. In real life, there has been several people drop their guns when firing without hearing protection since it gave the perception of a louder sound and it scared them.

We wear eye protection when shooting and that too is a good safety practice.

We train with the same gun consistently. We know the feel of the gun. We know the workings of the gun. We carry the gun for defense work. Yet when we wear gloves, the gun feels entirely different. The recoil is cushioned and gives the shooter the feel of a new gun. I have had ladies on the range shoot for a while with gloves and decide to remove them. Once off, their shooting is also off. If one is to be accurate in the field as much as they are on the range, then the shooting has to be as close to range conditions as possible. There is little we can do about hearing protection and, for those that do not wear glasses routinely, there is little we can do about that in the real world events. Yet gloves are another matter. If your grips are hurting your hands with volume shooting, then get some smoother grips.

LEO wear gloves for a reason not related to shooting. On the range you will seldom see LEO wearing gloves since they may not have them on in the field.

I do not care if you wear gloves, a hard hat or speedos. My input is only for consideration that will change your shooting in real time events. Things that change between practice on the range and real life shooting will change the way you hit your targets. We all get caught up in wanting and buying the latest in the sport. Just as there are different opinions on gun brands, there are different opinions on shooting styles. Not many I know wear gloves routinely in life but your gun is not going to feel the same under stress and without gloves if you get used to using them while shooting.

I could have made it simpler to understand.

If it changes how you shoot, it will change the way you shoot.

Few of us are perfect shooters and practice will not make a perfect shooter but perfect practice will.
