Gloves or no gloves?

Post by Dramatikk » Sun Apr 03, 2011 4:29 pm

Do you guys shoot with, or without using gloves?

Me for one, just can not stand shooting with gloves. It just does not feel as comfortable as shooting with bare hands.
Operating the weapons feels much better without gloves, and it helps me keeping focus on the targest and not to focus on the irritation over not feeling the mag release of the gun.

With gloves. With vests, with helmets, with masks. With all gear.

When we train shooting in plain clothes /undercover/ we are shooting without gloves.

If you dont use gloves in real world, you dont have train with it.

If no gloves, get a stippling job on the grip and contact points for extra safety and grip.

If gloves, make sure it can FIT (trigger housing and large hands, you never know). It is up to your whether you want light ones or fancy ones, depending on whether you get used to it and can feel your way around the weapon.

Yup, gloves. Invest in a decent pair of assaulter's shooting gloves and practice shooting with them as much as possible. I spend one shift every two weeks, wearing them the entire shift. It improves my dexterity and eases issues with discomfort. I've taught entire classes while wearing them. Try doing paperwork in them! :roll:

Not since I stopped freehand climbing right after getting out of the Army.

I'm not knocking it. I've never tried it outside of rock climbing, that's all.
