    I dunno, but I've done it myself. Just turn the glove inside-out and build up moleskin in layers.

    Milt,
    These gloves are currently made by " GRIPSWELL". Their website is www.gripswell.com.....I purchased mine form MPC Sports. Others carry these gloves, but you need to be sure size. I usually take a large size, but when I tried several pairs, I needed an XL. Might be cut a size larger due to padding in palm. But I use mine for couple of guns, work well.
    Good luck...........Rob G.

    I've seen baseball gloves with this feature, so you may be able to get them at a local sporting goods store.

    Milt,

    We carry the GripSwell gloves on our website. They are a great glove and include the palm swell.

    The side by side gloves which are the GS-12 series gloves also have the leather pad on the opposite glove as well to help with the heat built up if you lay any fingers on the barrel at the end of the forearm or if your forearm release is not recessed enough, the leather on the palm helps.

    Take a look,

    Thanks
    Cory

    Trek Moby gloves with gel - are cheaper- and wear much longer than any shooting glove

    Ok I know that this is a bit of a self serving post. Like the others here arn't.lol

    For a palm swell to correctly work it needs to be a part of the stock. A palm swell should help with control of the stock under recoil. A swell in a glove will work marginally; compared to one on a gun. The down side is if you have a gun with out a palm swell it will cost you from around $100-250 to have a wood one added and re checker that side of the stock.

    My experience with GripSwell gloves are:

    They are expensive.
    They wear out fast.
    They do not stand behind their product. Customer service stinks.

    Glen go to any Bicycle shop that sells Trek Bikes--- you probably can go online and look

    the regular gel gloves have some padding and the Moby have about double that

    19-29 bucks is the range- I get 3=4 years out of them if I used them just for shooting and could wear them longer

    Other bike gloves are available also- you might want to check other brands out

    Easton baseball batting gloves. Very nice and have lightly padded palms. Found mine at Dick's.
