    Hello: Foot Joy winter golf gloves. About $21 and fit very well. It has not been cold enough here yet to try them. It is snowing today so I may go walk and get the mail with them. Hope this helps. Thanks, Eric

    Foot Joy wet weather gloves. They are good for all year round. More damp they get the better they grip.

    In the past, I've gone to sporting goods stores and bought baseball batter's gloves. They are light enough, and are usually cheaper than buying regular shooting gloves. I haven't bought one recently, so I don't know the costs, or even if you can still buy just one.

    I have used golf gloves in the past.

    Lately I have been using bicycle riding gloves; little extra padding (think palm swell) and open fingers.

    They wear better than golf gloves also.

    Regards, and good shooting,

    Dave

    I use to wear WinterJoy golf gloves, which are good, but I like Mechaniix brand gloves better since I got some. The Bob Allen's I have are too bulky.

    In the warmer months I like to wear golf gloves on both hands, no sweating, better purchase on the gun especially the trigger hand. I am right handed shoot release and cut the trigger finger off the glove. I like the feel when I set the release, seems to work for me. Also a benefit when shooting doubles above 90 degrees, hot gun, no sweaty hands, better control = better scores for me. Scott

    I've tried them all and the batting gloves are the best value for the money.
    I have these UA ones right now and they are nearing 3 years old and I shoot a lot. I've never been able to get much more than a year from golf gloves.

    Used to use GUN GLOVE--quality went to junk!! Way too expensive.

    Foot Joys are the way to go.

    I'll hop in with a vote for batting gloves. I have been using them for years, but I do it a little different. I wait until the end of baseball season then buy them discounted for under 10 dollars.
    Another OT is that I use weight lifting gloves for shooting my HP pistols. The padding in the palm helps take some of the sting out of the big guns.

    I have been using a FJ golf glove (real leather and then synthetic)on my trigger (R) hand for decades. Consistent grip and comfort. I've used "Mechanics Gloves" on both hands for the odd occasion I've shot in cold weather and they work just fine.

    Foot joy all the way Sta-soft in the summer and there cold weather gloves in the winter. Foot joy sells more gloves in 1 day than all the others combined in a year.

    Hello: I tested the Foot Joy gloves today going to the post box. They worked great at zero with a little snow falling down. Thanks, Eric

    When you use batting gloves, do you have to adjust them after every shot?

    Ditto to what APrice said. The UA batting glove is great year round.
