Shooting gloves recommendations

8294 75
I was wondering what others are using for shooting gloves. My issue is that with 90 degree 80% humidity New England weather my hand gets uncomfortably sticky during long Sunday shooting sessions. Couple rounds is not a problem but if I shoot more than that I feel like I have to run and wash my hands with rubbing alcohol)
So I was wondering what would be good shooting gloves? I was thinking very thin leather since it'll have a better grip and feel on a lacquered stock compared to fabric gloves.
So what would be the thinnest leather gloves?

One can spend a bunch of money on gloves, but since I wear them out or lose them, I have been using cheap mechanics gloves I buy from Harbor Freight Tools. Made of nylon so they breathe and my hands don’t sweat. Palms have a coating that grips the gun, yet I can pick up a piece of shot off a hard surface. I wear only one glove. Been using them for 10-15 years or more. They have all different types heavy, medium and light which is what I buy.

I tried nylon gloves and they are a bit to slippery for me that's why I was thinking about leather as it will be as close to bare skin as possible I's assume.
Bruce Golf gloves is a good idea, never thought about it. Any ide how thin they are?

I like the Gun Glove but the summer version only lasts me less than 2 years.

Have used golf gloves since then (for summer use) and lucky to get a year out of them. The right one (I'm right handed) always wears out before the left which is OK you normally buy them one at a time anyhow.

Finally went to Costco and picked up a 4 pack of Kirkland Signature Golf Gloves they are Cabretta Leather for ~$20 and like them best. Of course you need a pack of each, right and left hand. You can buy them on line but they are more expensive Linky

If you aren't a Costco member you can get them at Amazon but they are only a 3 pack for $30

What I like about the Costco Kirkland golf gloves is that they don't have that stupid snap on ball marker which is just something to ding and scratch up your stock with. Then again I gave up golf years ago so don't need a ball marker and would rather shoot golf balls with the shotgun by rolling them down between the bbls and flipping it up in the air and shooting it. I can slice a golf ball with a shotgun just as well as I can with a driver LOL.

Firm Grip Utility Work Gloves, Home Depot; $3.29 a pair, and they last. Can't beat'em.
