    I know this was covered some time back but cannot find it. My hands sweat and it is causing issues with my gun finish. I am also VERY trigger sensitive. I have tried the browning gloves with acceptable results in the past but did wonder if there is a better glove out there to try. I guess thinner is better. I also tend to need a medium to large size which is a problem. Do any of you just cut off the trigger finger for sensitivity? I am a old bench rest shooter and I do not slap the trigger as many do. Its about time to buy a few pair for next year. Thanks in advance for any help. Chris

    Gun Gloves. The best. I cut the trigger finger off mine.

    I like the Summer weight GunGloves for warmer weather. They are available in many sizes so they are easy to fit. They last longer than others that I have tried. I wear gloves every time I shoot and the GunGloves last a whole season.

    For Winter use I prefer Footjoy Wintersoft golf gloves.

    Golf gloves work well for me and I too have the ability to rust anything I touch. I buy what's on sale and wear year around.

    I have never tried the gun glove but they look interesting. I have tried batting gloves of various makes and they work OK but I tend to sweat them up very quickly. What I have tried and like even in the winter are the Bob Allen Shotgun Gloves model 315. They are thin for a great feel and the woven back keeps me from sweating in the summer and provides just enough warmth in the winter to make shooting in freezing weather tolerable. The synthetic suede used for the palms will wear through on the high wear areas in about a single season but for $23 dollars a set they are a great deal.

    I use Batters gloves, when they get soiled I just wash them in the sink with dishwashing soap and air dry them and they are like brand new ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Under Armour glove liners. They are super thin yet have a great gripping material.

    I have used golf gloves with good results. My favorites, however, come from Gall's. They have a pair of unlined, black leather gloves that are extremely soft,thin and don't affect touch. My shooting buddies call them my "Rodney King" gloves...LOL.

    As grntitan Said, Gun Gloves Work Best For Me And The Under Armour Glove Liners Work Well Also. The Gun Gloves Give Me Better Control Than Other Gloves. Joe W.

    I have had three sets of "gun gloves", they did not last long. The fine checkering on my guns eat them up.
    Just got a pair of Pittards form Cabelas, all I can say is wow. I shoot a release trigger, with the slippery "gun gloves" I did not realize the difference what a good gun glove can make in trigger control. Looks like my days of short shooting will be over.

    I've used a bunch of different kinds of gloves to shoot with, but I find that leather (not vinyl or synthetic) golf gloves work best for me. I cut off the thumb, index, and middle finger on the glove on my trigger hand. That gives me good "feel" for loading the gun, shooting the gun, adjusting my glasses, or whatever.

    The golf gloves are lightweight (which is important here in Florida) and give good gripping ability on the gun. If it gets too cold to shoot with golf gloves, then it's just too cold to shoot PERIOD. That doesn't happen often here. :)

    Phil,

    You must have razor blade checkering. Is that your anti-theft device? LOL

    I wear a variety of gloves all year... but my go-to gloves are the Bob Allen Shotgunner glovers, Orvis Gun Glove and lastly a pair of John W. Nordstrom leather driving gloves.

    Leather are the primary unless its too hot or cold and then I go with the ventilated shotgunner or the fleece gun glove...

    The checkering is very sharp & crisp. If I slide my left hand fwd on the forearm. without a glove it will remove skin.

    Try some football wide receiver gloves. The Nike Superbad model and Under Armour model are common in most sporting goods stores. They are thin but have a tacky, rubbery kind of surface that provides excellent grip.

    If you must wear gloves, try Zildjian drummers' gloves. They only come to the wrist, super flexible, and have double thickness where you need it.

    I also use golf gloves.. I go to the flea market and find the cheapest thing I can. They are thin enough that I don't have to cut off the trigger finger..

    In cold weather I use the winter glove because the grip side is still thin.. but the back is thicker.. I will also put one of the throw away hand warmers in the back so that the blood flow picks up the heat and keeps my fingers warm if it is very cold.
