    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.

    i was wondering myself about the samething. i had thought about baseball gloves due to the thin slim fit. therefore not interfering with the trigger guard and such. is this a bad idea

    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.

    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.

    I just use work out gloves, my favorites are from Gold's Gym, I buy them at academy.

    I ike the fact they have extra padding on the grip part, the finger tips are cut out so I feel free to reload and such.

    another plus is, if you close the glove tight with the Velcro, it steadies you hand a lot better than without gloves.

    gloves

    the best deal seems to be baseball hitting gloves, they go on sale at the end of summer and are manufactured by the same people who manufacturer driving and golf gloves.

    I dont like the gloves with excessive padding. they just seem too bulky for me when gripping a pistol. So I just use the Mechanics Wear. 20 bucks at Wallyworld and they are everywere in my life. Range bags, cars, trucks and stuck into the pockets of my winter coat. Not overly warm but short runns outside they are great.

    I did try the golf gloves for a while, but for some reason I just stopped buying them for the MW gloves.

    IF ya got a store called Big Lots in your area they also carry Wells Lamont gloves for about 5 bucks a pair.
