...while shooting at GSSF matches? And, if so, does anyone do it?
At my first GSSF match this past June in Roseburg, OR, I Ro'd and shot. I had a friend who wore gloves due to his neuralgia and he needs them when shooting a full day. Otherwise he has problems with his hands. There was no problem with him wearing gloves.
I don't think GSSF or the match directors would mind if you had a plausible reason. I don't recall reading anything about it in the rule book either.
Hope this helps.
You can wear shooting gloves. They are not against the rules, yet.
They haven't busted glockNstein yet!
What about baseball batting gloves? They work very well. I usually only use them in the winter, or when we have one of those really hot sweaty days where you can't keep your hands dry.
I believe glockNstein uses a bicycle glove. I doubt anyone cares. Bicycle glove, batting glove or shooting glove, they're all about the same, it's basically the name that's different.
But they are not called gloves in the shooting circles, we refer to them as "sissy mitts"!!;f I did not know that the big, burly, GlockNstein wore sissy mitts!
Gloves, boots, scarves and matching accessories are acceptable.;e
a long time ago i thought about getting a pair of sap gloves
of course you would have to cut the index finger off of a pair of $54 gloves....
heres the thing - you cant put extra weight (the brown turd mounted on the accessory light rail) on the gun in amateur
but as i read the rule book - saps are not outlawed YET - you could get an extra 12 ounces (6oz each) from your gloves...
i was thinking that this might be the thing separating me from the middle of C class and the top of A class
but a friend of mine brought me back to earth and reminded me that the thing keeping me out of the top of A class
is my L. O. F. T.
Here I thought GlockenStein wore those "Big Bulky Firemans Gloves" . DannyR/Scotty; "Purses and matching Scarves are optional" ;P ;P ;P ;f ;f ;f
ok ;Q , points taken. It's ok to wear them, but you are going to be branded a sissy and ridiculed ;f . I have no problem with that you big meanies! ;a
Seriously, if you are worried about sweaty palms, just visit a sporting goods store and get a bag of rosin. I use Decal Grip on my GSSF and IDPA pistols.
For those who "Want or Have to wear gloves" , don't be offended by my comments above; I just needed my Sat. morning dose of humor to get the day started.
There are a few shooters who I have seen wearing gloves but not many. I don't know anything in the rules that prohibit wearing them and don't see a problem with them but that has to be a personal choice.
No offense taken from any of the above posts. ;c
I my self use weight lifting gloves that match my Glock (Black) and go well with my mags to except my Orange ones and as far as my purse and scarves go I don't have one you will need to ask Glockmom about that.
Just got back from the range, and heard about the pounding I was taking. Yes I have used bicycle gloves, palms are padded and your fingers are exposed. I used them for a few reasons... first and foremost, because I am a big "sissy", next because they match my shooting attire, not my scarf, but my booties and my hearing protection. ;f ;f ;f
Really though, the padding helps me grip a little tighter, they keep sweat from making the pistol slippery when hot outside, and keep my hands warm in the winter (Anderson, SC).
I am starting to use my G17 to practice for Statesville, and I am trying it without gloves for now. We'll see what happens.
Here I go again!!!
Hey glockNstein, try A-Grip. It works for gripping. Won't help with keeping your hands warm though.
After the tons of rounds I put through my 17 and 17L, the A-Grip is still there and still works.
Just a thought.
actually... i kindof lied to you - sorry
the other time i have thought about wearing gloves is, um well, i cant really talk about it too much, but i got the gloves from http://www.snowcrest.net/masterpro/
be sure you dont get any fingerprints on the ammo either
