    Loading Magazine Wearing Gloves?

    I was reading a thread from another forum. A guy asked how many people wear gloves to keep there fingerprints off there ammunition. Why would anyone even think about doing that? I personally think it is rediculous and could turn the table on you in a self defense situation. Perhaps they can play the premeditated game? Anyone here have a legitimate reason why anyone would want to do this? I know I wouldn't. I mean unless I plan on commiting a criminal act, I can find no other reason. If I shoot someone in self defense I am pretty sure it is going to be obvious. I'm not gonna be the guy in the ski mask... nor will I be wearing gloves.

    Probably the same type of person that believes if you end up shooting a bad guy in your front yard, you should drag the body into the house and then kick in your own door so it looks like he had allready broke in.
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    Wow, if that person goes that far, he might as well plant a gun on the perp.

    Wow that's a new one. The minds of some of our brethren can be spooky.

    I'll load magazines wearing gloves...

    but only if I'm at an outdoor range, and it's freaking cold out!

    I agree that there is something not quite right in a person not wanting their own fingerprints on ammunition that they carry in their firearm for the purpose of legitimate self-defense.

    Sounds like a goofball watching too many episodes of Forensic Files.

    Worrying about fingerprints on your rounds is very strange, especially if you're a law abiding citizen. I would like to know what is really in the guy's head.

    What is in his head? I can tell you exactly what is in his head.
    What is in his head would be a scenario where he would be involved in either a good or bad shoot and then would take off...and go run and hide ...and watch the TV news from under Mommy's bed...rather than call 911 and report the incident. That is what is in his head.
    A guy who thinks he is intelligent enough to beat a Forensic Police & Homicide Investigation and they never are. So he is the guy that will be looking over his shoulder in fear constantly for 2, 5, 10, 20 years until they finally grab his arse and he ends up in prison until all of his teeth and hair are gone from his head.
    That's what's in his head.

    A thought...

    The only reason I can see is if you're hands aren't up to the task. Sometimes, loading that last AR round or packing the last hollow-point into the mag requires a bit of a push...my fingies are sore sometimes after getting ready for the range, too.

    Those little plastic loaders are neat, and a better solution than gloves...

    Reminds me of a post I saw elsewhere by an idiot who was discussing getting a "friend" to load the magazine.

    My prints are on everything I own or legitimately use (like a keyboard at work). That's one thing I never think about.

    Wearing leather or cloth gloves would make it pretty hard for me to load a magazine anyway; wearing thin rubber gloves would quickly shred them. Jamming the last round into the 10th mag of the day (even using the plastic gadget) can be slightly painful, but I think wearing gloves to reduce pain would be offset by interference with grip.

    Some believe, I think it's BS, that the oils from your fingers can damage the primers, making them less reliable.

    I don't plan on using my weapon during a criminal act, so why would anyone one to keep their fingerprints off the the ammo? I think that might have been someone baiting.
