    Shooting gloves?

    I've got an interesting question for those that are more schooled than me.

    I have gotten my SO involved in my shooting fixation. We two, and my son, have finished our CHL class and mailed our applications.

    She shoots a Bersa .380 and recently we came across some ammo that was really dirty. She asked about some type of shooting gloves. Don't know that I have ever heard of such a thing. My response was, "well, those might keep your hands clean while we are here at the range, but what would you do if you were in a situation where you needed to pull your weapon and use it? Would you ask the perp to wait a moment while you put your gloves on?" Of course, that didn't go well. So my question is, has or does anyone make any type of glove designed for shooters?

    Thanks for your time and consideration.

    Obviously, they make them, but I would never wear them. I like the feel of metal to the skin, and as you said, that's probably how it is going to be in 'situation'.

    I have seen people wear gloves when shooting skeet, but not with pistolas...especially in this warm weather (FL).
    Even when I lived in the Nothern MI woods, I did not practice with gloves on...

    I have a set of Oakley assault gloves that I have to wear while downrange, they are ok for shooting with, but I prefer to not wear gloves while shooting. Gloves make it harder to do precise finger movements and such, so operating the controls of your weapon can become impaired. It took a little while to get used to pulling the trigger with gloves on. Just my opinion.

    I don't recommend gloves, but if she want's some to wear, get her golf gloves, light weight, very thin, should give her decent feel.

    You can buy them at any reputable gun store. I wear them in the summer when shooting outdoors as my hands sweat and the gun will twist when I fire it. Other than that I don't use them.

    My wife got some "full Coverage" golf gloves - thin and supple. She loves them if we're shooting "dirty" ammo.

    You can get both left and right handed for a true pair.

    I've heard of folks wanting gloves for tender hands, but DIRTY? Buy her a box of disposable rubber gloves.
    I can guess who has to pick up that filthy brass when you're done shooting!

    Gloves would help if you are shooting a smith & wesson in 44 mag or a 454 cassel. After about 50 rounds either one can beat your hands up. If the rounds you are shooting are dirty you can always wash your hands. If you have to use the gun to protect your self you will not have the luxury of taking the time to put gloves on.

    Hey AZ, it's called "Marital Harmony"....Like when I get a cast iron skillet upside the head, my head rings in harmony.

    I always use blue nitrile gloves when working on my car. She'll look a little strange, but it'll work. They're a lot tougher than regular surgical gloves, which break pretty easily if you poke them with anything.

    I'm trying for a Reserve Deputy position. So I have been practicing with gloves ( Kevlar ) to get used to them. I laso have a Kel-Tec P3AT and a P11. Long days at the range with these two can be hard on the hands. So gloves help for me in my situation.
