I brought home some impact gloves from the mine I was working at a few years ago. They have gel in the palms and fingers are designed to absorb the vibration of air powered jack legg drills similar to a jack hammer.
Any way when I shoot over about 20 rounds through my model 29 the wood grips make my right hand hand sting a little.The gloves absorb it all and no sting.I could just put some ugly rubber grips on it but don't need to with the impact gloves.
I forgot the brand name on them but they look and fit like mechanics gloves.Just have gel packs.

I've had many types from most of what you guys have said, but right now I am using the PIG Full Dexterity Tactical (FDT-Alpha) Glove from SKD. $35 - go check them out!

Mechanix. They're like 20 bucks and I use em for everything. I wish they made some with an e tip though.

Can't stand gloves. The only time I use them is for refinishing wood. I use medical gloves for that. I cant even wear gloves while hunting. I can start out with a pair but they end up in my pocket after a short time.

For heavy recoil handguns, gloves can help at the range if they are padded. I've shot my Smith Titanium Airlite Ti with a pair of Hatch Shorty padded gloves. Some of the gloves are made of Kangaroo leather. I also have two pair of GripSwell Driving and Shooting Gloves. They're "classier" for gentleman type shooters.

I personally use Mechanix M-pact. They work really well with AR's and rifles. With a pistol they've got enough dexterity that you can (with some difficulty) load a pistol mag and shoot. For me the trigger pull on my handgun feels longer every time I wear gloves, but I get used to that after a bit.

Golf gloves... but they aren't going to absorb a lot of impact

I use a glove to shoot my NATO Browning. The hammers on GP35s will usually bite

anybody with large hands. Gloves will prevent this.

I have used them in the military and over seas but not for padding but because anything metal like your rifle you touch will burn you, also back in the states if it's snowing I'll wear some thin pilot gloves. In my personal life I have never had the need to wear them and I think it's kinda tacky like socks and sandals. I have yet to encounter a gun that recoils hard enough to even begin to warrant gloves. Then again I have not gone out of my way to shoot a S&W 500 because I don't feel the need to pay that much to shoot a silly round.

Paper targets are so much cheaper than gloves
