Gloves for my AK o-pap

I have been shooting my O Pap a lot lately and we all know how hot they get. I was needing some ideas for gloves to wear for a class I am taking that requires some extended shooting?

I've had good luck with HWI gloves (HWI Combat Glove) over the years when shooting aks.
A local cop shop stocks them, that's how I got turned on to them.

I use Mechanix leather. No problems using my rifles with an Ultimak.

I use a pair that has the regular "suede" palm, but leather around the fingers and along the thumb and pointer finger. They are literally perfect for shooting with an Ultimak because the leather is right where my hand touches the gas tube, and I get no problems going thumb-over-bore. The "suede" palm does good to protect from radiant heat as well, so for shooting an AK with wood handguards, the regular plain jane gloves will work just fine. They have the "tactical" line if you want "tactical" colors as well. I'll probably get some, not for the colors, but to support the fact that they're a mainstream company making a product with "Sport shooters" in mind. I dunno, I just like that.

Problem I just realized, though, is I don't see these on their site... dammit all!

Same type I use. You can find them at Walmart or Lowes.

I use these now, after going through two pairs of the old style.
