    Any recommendations for winter shooting gloves that will be effective at 30 Deg F or below and leave you some dexterity. Thanx, Billy

    insulated Bob Allen gloves work good. The trick to keeping your hands warm is to overdress your body, keep your trunk warm, almost too warm, and your hands will stay warm.

    Although not advertised as a winter glove, Orvis is offering a promotional shooting glove that I really like for myself. Their new shooting glove is $9.95 in olive/black with a fleece/poly body and faux suede palm and fingers.

    I've been wearing them here in Chi-town in the current single digits and teens. For me they're just a enough and offer great tactic feel.

    Item number 2C9K, available M, L, & XL

    FYI,

    Just bought 3 pairs of winter golf gloves and 2 pair of rain gloves at the local "Pro Golf" store.

    Winter gloves $15.95 with fleece backs, long fingers and a tacky 1-piece gripping surface for fingers and palm. Excellent trigger feel and warm enough for me.

    Rain gloves feel like thin leather but must be wet to work; when wet they get tacky for excellent grip and sensitivity; same price, same place.

    Nike golf gloves!! I don't like any of the shooting gloves that I have ever found, they all seem too slik. It's hard to get a firm grip on the gun. With the golf gloves you can get a good grip on it

    Try Cabelas.com they have kangaroo shooting gloves for $19.95 regular $50.00. Even if you don't shoot kangaroos they work fine for trap. Nicest gloves around for the money.

    didnt like shooting gloves sold by cabelas tried various pairs. ordered a pair of baseball batting gloves and love em. tight fit with lines and dots of silicone on fingers and palm to enhance grip. the pair i have are from mizuno. prob not much in the way of insulation but would rather have close fit. al

    I asked this same question on here about a month ago. I ended up going with a pair of footjoy winter golf gloves(dick's sporting goods). They were under $20, which, in my opinion, made them a bargain. As far as dexterity, I was able to pick up my son's dropped Cherios...............

    These are the Kangaroo leather Thinsulate(40 gram) lined gloves I have worn in the past for winter shooting (which I no longer do) but they are great for that and for upland hunting, and for everyday and dress wear. I don't know where someone found them for $19 but the last time I got them they were $40. It appears they are $60 now!

    The warmest gloves I've found are GripSwell insulated shooting gloves.

    spitter, thanks for the tip on the Orvis promotional glove (2C9K). I just ordered a pair for $9.95 and the shipping was free!

    I've shot trap in northeast Ohio since 1978 using regular leather golf gloves (both hands). For one or two rounds my fingers aren't frozen nor cold enough to prevent feeling the trigger. I usually shoot a round or two then back to the warm clubhouse before I go back out on the line. After I started using the golf gloves in the winter months, I never gave these up for all the other seasons. I prefer the soft leather gloves such as Footjoy Stay-soft or any similar brand. Works for me and doesn't cost you an arm and a leg. BT-100dc

    another vote for Cabela's kangaroo leather gloves with thinsulate. I've shot with them this winter consistently at minus 10 degrees celsius or colder and I've been comfortable. They have good feel also. I shoot a 391 and a K80 without issues with the gloves. Can't beat $19
