Gun Guru Massad Ayoob recently blogged about cold weather shooting. As usual, condoms were mentioned. Ayoob also shared input from his expert readers on winter lubrication (of the non-alcoholic variety) and handwear. And so I put it to TTAG’s Armed Intelligentsia: what gloves do you use for winter shooting? For those of you who conceal carry, do you choose gloves that work with your gun? Do you practice with same? I recently ordered a pair of Nomex gloves for test and evaluation. Do you have any suggestions for other gloves we should review?
I do practice with gloves. As a result I do not carry my J frame when I have to wear gloves–the gloves I typically wear keep the trigger from resetting. I could experiment with different gloves, but it is much easier to just carry my XD or my wife's P3AT in the winter.
I use winter grade golf gloves….available at any golf or sporting goods store. Warm, thin, tacky and weather proof. A good pair is less than 20.
VooDoo tactical in OD green, good gloves @ a reasonable price.
For really cold weather shooting, check out the military issue shooting mittens(thick wool mittens with a ny/co shell) lifesavers for your hands in places like Germany, Bosnia, etc…
Sorta cold weather? Kevlar-lined leather gloves from Harbor Freight, only $12. Really cold weather? I’ll take my right hand out of my bulky ski glove just long enough to shoot. If it’s that cold I probably wont be going shooting for fun.
Ayoob was writing about condoms? Please tell me it wasn't a product review.
