    Does anyone have a recommendation for really good (i.e., effectively cushions 1911 recoil yet doesn't hinder dexterity in the least) fingerless shooting gloves?

    The issue is that anything that padded affects how you grip the gun. Maybe change out the current grips for some rubber ones?

    Packmayr grips are on it already. The mainspring housing and grip safety are metal, though, of course. I'm not that concerned about grip alteration (unless it's totally drastic, in which case, I don't want those gloves). I intend to start "shooting the ****" outta my pistol and don't want to wind up with some sort of repetitive motion-type injury.

    I doubt it will be repetitive motion; more like tendonitis if the recoil affects you that bad. The way around that would be to shoot some of that for a few mags then rest or shoot a .22 1911 and swap back and forth

    You don't have to limit your search to shooting gloves. Weight lifting gloves and bike gloves are also available in fingerless designs with padded palms.

    I like Carhart cheap gardening gloves. not fingerless, but - I don't find a noticable lack of feel to it with them.

    I found some cool black motorcycle gloves, fingerless. Driving gloves can be found fingerless. But, as a cyclist, bicycle gloves might be easiest to find in a wide variety of designs, synthetic, leather, differing amounts and types of padding. A cyclist needs padding but they also need feel as a lot of information is transmitted through the handlebars. Cycling gloves as well are generally fingerless to allow fine motor control of the brakes and shifters.

    Re the cycling gloves, I kinda suspected that to be the case. I'm mulling over these two (tentatively):

    https://www.castelli-cycling.com/us/men/accessories/cycling-gloves/p/452107521P-085

    Nautally, I'd like to get off as cheap as possible, but you'd have them forever (unless you lost them) and never wear them out. There's scads of brands/types and I'm looking.

    This is probably the solution, at a reasonable price:

    Any bike shop will have gloves on the rack to try. All of those look good, it just depends on how they feel on your hands. I tell you what, they have minimal padding, but Walmart Bell brand (cycling) gloves are about $15. I actually use them for both cycling and shooting. I never needed much padding, actually do not like it when cycling but I am (or was ;) and have the broken bones to prove it :( ) a competitive cyclist and too much padding makes the bike feel squirmy.

    I use the Bontrager cycling gloves that have a mesh back.

    Scuba glove, just cut the fingers off.

    3mm of neoprene Rubber dampens shock, and is grippy as heck. (They won't last long)

    No cushioning but a golf glove with the finger cut off is the least annoying glove I've ever used.

    Aviator gloves with the trigger finger only cut off are good also.
