    As others have said...go by Home Depot or Lowes, or OSH, etc., whatever is in your area and look through their selection of gloves for what will suit you. You can try them on there as well.

    You do not really need an $80. pair of "Xtreme Sniper Warrior Tactical Shooting" gloves in order to shoot. The set used for operating a jack hammer available wherever tools are sold, will likely work better.

    Browning Sporting goods and other outdoor and hunting oriented sites and stores sell cold weather gloves for a variety of tasks in cold weather. These may suit you.

    You're walking to your car.... Three gangbangers surround you.... You yell "Stop... I need to put on my shooting gloves".
    Seriously... unless you are just playing games, crutches like shooting gloves are a bad idea. If you can't shoot your gun without aids - get another gun that you can handle.

    I have some sympathy with this point of view above but I also have no idea what the op plans to do or why he wants to practice with shooting gloves. I don't need to make an assumption. For that reason I can give him the most straight forward answer I can give and I tried that above.

    Could be he wants to shoot his hunting handgun in the cold and is looking for some advice. He could be into silhouette shooting and thinking of the cold and recoil. He could be new to big bore revolvers and working out his options. He could have an injury of some type. Etc., etc. Could be a number of reasons. He didn't say, he just asked about gloves.

    Thanks all to those that gave honest considerate responses to my OP. The first time I shot my S&W Air weight Model 638 which I bought a few weeks ago I shot about 300 rounds and a third of that was +P rounds. It did take a toll on my shooting hand which I had carpal tunnel syndrome. I give you guys credit that can deal with the constant recoil from a lightweight revolver and stout ammo without the need for shooting gloves. I know shooting gloves will allow me to shoot a bit more since I can practice more comfortably. Obviously I won't be putting gloves on in a SHTF scenario :D.
