    If your shooting with gloves on, it would just look silly to take them off the reload a mag.

    If you don't like you thumb getting chewed up, by all means, wear some gloves.

    I hear those nasty body oils are bad for brass & powder.
    ;)
    I do seriously handle my handguns with a t shirt most times, just to prevent smudgies. (my stuff is not high dollar)

    If you're legal in using your gun what does it matter if there is a finger print on the brass? Your prints are on the gun and it week be no secret that you did the shooting...unless you do it for the reason of thinking it well affect the reliability of the round.

    I glove my carry ammo too. It'll spend 4-6 mos on me, or in and out of the mags when I practice before I shoot it off. Oil from my hands may or may not cause corrosion, I don't know for sure and I'm not about to find out the hard way...

    Chaos, have you considered a revolver or a spare barrel for your EDC semi-auto?



    OK, it took me a minute to figure it out, but i think you took my comment about my firearms not being "high dollar" differently than intended. I meant "i usually handle my handguns using an old Tshirt, despite the fact that they are not fancy or expensive, not because they are so beat the finger oil could just finish them off. LOL, sorry.

    I can't use gloves, but my thumb is callused up enough now that it doesn't bother me any more.. The Glock has a nice aid in loading your mags.. I wish more manufacturers would follow suit..
