Indeed.

YMMV

You wear gloves in winter if you live in a cold enough geography. Why not wear shooting enabled gloves like my new Polar-Ex? my hands will be warm and shooting ready. In winter I'm probably carrying LCR 357.

If you know you're going into a dangerous situation and carrying bigger, wearing tactical gloves has an additional benefit of providing defence against knife cuts too. I'd put my gloves on if I knew ahead of time there was an increased chance of trouble.... SHTF type situation or whatever. I'd probably be carrying 45 Auto in this case.

Every regular day in the summer I'd probably not be wearing gloves and probably have my LCP.

Simple, practice shooting my LCP without gloves.
Practice shooting LCR with winter Polar-Ex gloves.
Practice shooting my XDm 45 and/or Storm 45 with Blackhawk gloves.

I've already tried dry-firing and the sight picture is steady through the whole pull of the trigger, so I don't think it's messing me up. I haven't gone shooting for real yet to confirm though.

If I in fact seem to shoot better with gloves at the range, then might switch to always doing that for my other range shooting guns. If there is a difference and I shoot better without, then i'll just do whatever seems to work best.

I agree with the general point of practicing just like you would in a real situation. I gave you examples of when you might have gloves on and what the advantage is.

I can give a sad story about how ingrained training becomes and how we react to the way we shoot.

A few years back, a detective was on the scene of a shots fired call. This was his first shooting to be in as it happened in his 19 yrs on the force.

At the range, officers have to pick up their brass as they shoot qualifying rounds. On this scene, he fired his gun for the first time ever in a life & death battle. Once fired, he reached to pick up his brass just as he did on the range. In reaching, he left cover just enough that his head was exposed and he caught a fatal round.

How one practices will depict how one does in the event of a real life shooting.

As to cold, I have rodeoed in MT and WY in the winter snow and did not need gloves. I try to stay in my vehicle or indoors during bad winter weather and my outdoor exposure is limited to a small amount of time so I do not wear gloves. Now if I am going to be hitting someone, I will put them on to keep from getting infection from their bleeding.

Understandably, there are those that do wear gloves but it makes a difference in your shooting.

Sure, just make sure you wear them at the range and in everyday concealed carry so you limit any changes.

Say, are those magnetic too? That gives me an idea.
