    Hi

    Sunscreen lotion and I don't get along too well. A non-shooting friend suggested wearing fishing shirt (long sleeves) when shooting. Any comments?

    Thanks,
    Tom

    I say go for it!!! You have to cover up from the sun some how!!! I like the one's with the opening in the top of the back. It helps let in the air. They make-em in long sleeve. Nice cool material to wear as well. Good Luck. And Break-em all. Jeff

    Don't waste money on clothes with UV protection that will wash out. The web site I posted above is to a company developed by a skin doctor who came down with skin cancer. Their clothes are the standard of the industry. Protection is in the cloth, not in a coating. I wear their shirts and pants all the time when I shoot. Light weight and cool with great protection. It ain't the cheapest stuff around but it's well made and easy to care for; a nasty sun burn will cost a lot more.

    Most fishing shirts have two big pockets. Easy for gun to hang up on when mounting it. Tee shirts don't provide sun screening or looks but sure work well.

    The "Wick Tech" line of shirts have comfortable short sleeve and long sleeve t-shirts that deal well with sweat AND provide spf 30 sun screening. And they're damned comfortable to shoot in.

    Do you suppose he means "tutu"?

    I guess he still hasn't gotten ahold of the concept that most people ask questions because they want to know something!

    I have three of the Cabela's fishing shirts with the vented mesh back. It is "caped" like other brands of fishing shirts for ventilation. The Cabela's shirts are $19. Can't beat them. Pockets are not an issue. Mike

    Hi Guys

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts on fishing shirts. Looks like they can protect me from the sun and also keep me cool. Will visit Dick's soon to get some.

    Thanks again for your replies.

    You can't wear a fishing shirt for shooting. Plus you can't wear a hunting shirt for golf. Or a golfing shirt for shooting. What will the women say? "Oh look, That guy has a fishing shirt and he's shooting.Oh, Gast. That's not the "style". And Miss Prissy says, "Oh, he must be a Skeeter or worse, a Sporting shooter"! Certainly NOT a Member or "OUR" Club! Oh,my so true Gwinneth. Lets, casual over to the baaathhh.
