Default Best Glove to use while shooting?

Hey all, I'm new here and yes, I have searched but I would like the opinions of this forum on the subject. I was shooting for a class this past Saturday and it was a bit cold, not heavy coat cold, but light jacket cold, and in the morning we were shooting shotguns it would have been nice to have a light glove so I have some light gloves that I use in security work when it's just a little chilly outside so I thought they would be good and they weren't bad ... but they are getting a bit old and I'm looking for a new pair SOoo... When you shoot (If you need or use a glove) what has been the best glove to use?

If I am going to shoot a bunch with the handguns I just put on a pair of mechanics gloves. They fit snug and can keep me warm into the 20's. I can also wear them when it is warm out and not get uncomfortable. Hope this helps. Good ones are from 12-20 bucks.

That's what I use... Got a pair of black Easton batting gloves from a box-store sporting dept. Not expensive. Works for me. Has just the right tactile feel for handling guns IMHO.

I bought a couple of pairs of Hatch "Specialist" gloves some years back. I keep one pair still new in the package as back up and keep one pair in my range bag. They aren't particularly toasty warm, but they work on cooler days.

I only use them for cooler weather shooting and even then, only if it's really cold. I believe in train how you'll shoot, so I doubt I'd ever happen to be wearing them if an occasion arose where I needed a firearm. So I shoot bare handed.

Here's a link: Hatch Corporation - Law Enforcement and Medical Products

I agree with CA357 about bare-handed for training. But of course not every round fired is for training purposes. Sometimes it is just fun to throw some lead.

Training=no gloves
Plinking=no limits

And gold gloves would work well, too. But the right glove is harder to find, they come only in singles, and for two are more expensive than a pair of those awesome Nomex gloves. But if you golf, you may already have one and just need a second.
