I do, you can too! Big Grin


Me too, I use Gorrilla Gloves from Home Depot, thin enough and work well.
I don't give a damn if someone says "I don't need them" > they need to mind their own business.

I don't think I've ever taken a shot with gloves on. I live in Florida. It's typically somewhere between "warm" and "hot as balls" here. Even hunting on a "cold" morning it was only near 50 degrees and gloves weren't needed.

As for the "what if you are wearing them when attacked" bit, unless my hands are deep in a piece of farm equipment, or running a chainsaw, there will be no gloves around, and the bad guy will likely have gotten the jump on me at that point in any case. I'll just hit them with a wrench or go all Texas chainsaw massacre on them.

The only time I've ever contemplated shooting with gloves has been when its so hot, my black pistols get too hot to hold from the sun.

I've hunted deer at -25 here in MN. Hands in pockets, no gloves for shooting.

I definitely see the benefits of shooting with gloves, I don't actually do it because I always forget, but having that extra layer helps tame fatigue and sore if you're going to shoot for a while.

I've practiced both with and without gloves. I used help out a security company for a while when they set up new accounts or had special coverage requests. If I'm going to be outside in cold weather, I'm probably going to be wearing gloves. I wanted to know exactly what to expect in both instances.
