    Anyone knows of a company that makes quality shooting gloves? I bought a pair a few years ago and they fell apart after a few uses. I tried ordering from Gripswell but they screwed up my order and I definitely will not order from them. I am looking for gloves to use when shooting my S&W Model 638. Something that will be comfortable, leather, and full length finger gloves.

    Hatch makes very good shooting gloves. Their KSG500 gloves are especially good.

    Golf gloves. Look for left hand models on the closeout table (they fit the right hand).

    Agree with CPO15.
    Have used golf gloves for years with my handguns and motorcycles.

    After using them for awhile, they fit like a second skin.

    I have a pair of "BLACKHAWK!" fingerless gloves that I have had for a few years, I know that they also make full finger length in the same style "S.O.L.A.G. Special Ops Full Finger Light Assault" for about $45.

    I use golf gloves for my shotgunning and wear them year round whether hot or cold. The Cabretta leather ones are nice.

    Bob Allen also makes shooting gloves, as does Beretta

    My case is funny, I ended up getting shooting gloves not because of grip or recoil, but because I didn't want to get my sweat all over my nickel and blued guns :D

    I ended up grabbing a pair of 'Mechanix' gloves for around $15 out of convenience thinking they wouldn't last very long, but I was wrong about that. Not only do I use them every time I go shooting, but also every time I drive, and I drive alot, as well as any and all heavy lifting I find myself doing. They have held up quite well, basically really well broken in with no additional wear after about a year of abuse. They have padded palms which also help with stouter magnums. I'm not affiliated with the company at all, I'm just impressed :)

    They have some yellow trim on the back side, but it doesn't bother me much, could always color it black with a sharpie. Also I cut the tips of the index fingers and pinkies off, my one gripe is there was too much material that just got in the way even though this was the size that fit me best.

    I am also a fan of the Mechanix gloves. They fit my hands very well and the model I buy has the Velcro closures at the wrist. They are offered in several colors. I prefer the solid black.

    Another recomendation for the Mechanix gloves. Inexpensive, relativly durable and with enough "feel" to operate a handgun. Their "Tactical" model can be found in black, coyote or camo but many of their "Automotive" or "Hardware" line would work just as well and can be found at most home improvement stores or even Wally World.

    Get SHOOTING gloves, they are designed for your use. P.A.S.T. makes a great product. Do a Google

    I also have to say yes to the mechanix gloves, I had a set I used for a few years before getting the BLACHAWK! S.O.L.A.G. gloves. I also tried a pair of weight lifting gloves, but found them a little too "thick" I have big hands anyway... so it just made it more difficult to handle the gun comfortably.

    i use a pair of PACT glove mostly for shooting my 454 Super Redhawk and find that they do help tremendously in taming recoil. I bought the largest size hey make and are a little snug but comfortable.

    Hawaii? Gloves?? Huh???

    Just kidding, maybe to keep the sweat done.

    About this time of the year, gloves are pretty essential on frosty mornings. Even stuffing rounds in lever action tubes can be bitey. I like running gloves (Costco had some $10 ones), Mechanics gloves (snug ones from Sears), golf gloves and batting gloves. I like a snug fit without seams near the right finger pad.

    After reading the above comments I started thinking of my JROTC competitions shooting small bore. We used a very thick leather gloves to isolate your hand pulse from transferring to the rifle. Guess what, after a half a century I cannot find what we used. I did find a picture of this young lady that has gloves like the ones I used.

    Can anyone direct me to a sight that handles these types of shooting gloves?

    I used P.A.S.T gloves when I was silhouette shooting many years ago. Still have 'em. They worked well when taming the recoil of hot loads. I shot .357 Max and .44 Magnum in a TC Contender. Some of the folk used rifle calibers, such as .30-30, in their Contenders. So padding was helpful. You may not need it.

    I'm sure the other options mentioned above would work well too. It's matter of whether or not they affect your grip and trigger control. They're cheap enough to try, and you can use them for other stuff too.

    Mechanix. Mechanix. Mechanix.

    I believe they also recently came out with a "heavy duty" version of the standard version and they are only slightly more expensive.

    Not just great shooting gloves, great gloves period.

    Shooting gloves??? Get some calluses! But seriously, the only gloves ive used were cold weather gloves from Under Armour. Warm and super thin but still durable.

    I'm using "Valeo Mesh Fingerless Anti-Vibe Gloves with Wrist Wraps" fingerless. Got on Amazon for &14.47.
    Great fit and really works for reducing recoil.
    Used for shooting .357 and it is GREAT!!!

    I use Craftsman mechanics gloves. The only reason is the material sewn into the palms and fingers. While my test is being able to pick up a dime on a level floor, these will allow it. I do however agree with these other guys about the golf gloves. I have used them too, and they work great.
