anyone know where to get a REALLY thin pair of leather shooting gloves, like the ones the german sniper wore in 'Enemy at the gates'?

Don't remember the ones from the movie off hand but, how thin are we talking? Leather or other material? Just found this site:

Frankly, if you are looking for a good thin shooting gloves, you're essentially describing a driving glove. Lok into that. I know a couple of manufacturers that market their driving gloves under a different label as shooting gloves.

Have a look at the Hatch Operator glove.
Have used mine for everything imaginable the last few weeks.
Shooting, loading mags, putting on snow chains etc.
They hold up realy well, and are thin enough to even wear while turning single pages in phone- and other books. :)
If thats not good enough, you can cut off the trigger finger, without the rest of the glove coming apart.
They are great to wear, I don't get cold fingers (chilly but not cold) even when they are wet and it was 19F (-7C) outside. When it got below -10C I have to use other gloves. :uhoh:
They are available from Hatch (http://www.hatch-corp.com) with both long and short sleeves.
