    I want to buy a good pair of shooting gloves as the Harbor Freight cheapie mechanics gloves just aren't cutting it anymore.

    Can you guys recommend a good pair?

    I'm looking for:

    1) Tight fit /highly tactile feel
    2) Light Weight
    3) NO insulation
    4) $40 Max

    Thanks!

    I wear the mechanix brand gloves for pretty much everything in the winter time here and I am in good ole' PA myself.

    They fit all of your listed criteria for only $20. :wavey:

    I don't use any Shooting Gloves. Just something else to get in the way between me and the gun I am carrying. If it is cold enough to need gloves, you need your hands in your pockets warming up for what may occur.....

    This would be my first thought, or a golf glove

    I picked up a pair of baseball gloves yesterday, looked at golf gloves. All the golf gloves were more colorful and cost a few dollars more. The baseball gloves were all black, which I liked.

    My wife bought a pair of padded golf gloves. She took the right hand one and my daughter took the left hand one(for obvious reasons).

    What do you shoot and how often? If you 'everydaycarry' will you be wearing these gloves in the event you need to deploy your carry weapon? Train like you carry everyday.

    FootJoy RainSof or WinterSof golf gloves. They come in all black, are pretty thin, and the WinterSof(s) are still pretty warm. I think they're about $30, but I haven't bought any in a couple of years.

    I would not be using these to train with my carry weapon ( Kahr PM40) as I do not expect to be wearing gloves in a confrontation.

    I shoot on average 100 rounds per week with one of 2 Glocks or a 1911, sometimes up to 300 rounds per session.

    I also shoot my Super Redhawk in .454 Casull ( my deer gun) once a month maybe 25 Rounds per session.

    The gloves are not for warmth but for comfort in shooting high volumes and loading mags without tearing up my fingers.

    You can have the man card, I replaced mine with the .454 along time ago.

    I bought a pair of Hatch shooting gloves last Fall. They are definitely cheap, really thin. The index fingers are smooth for trigger feel. Other finger tips have cheap plastic 'grips' on them. They are not for warmth, but a decent shooting glove. If I was able to look at them first hand before I bought them, I would not have. Just seem too cheap.

    About 2 days later I saw a pair at Dick's that were a good bit nicer, had nice sticky palms too for about $20.

    I can't speak for the OP on his reason for wanting a shooting glove, but I was always taught not to eat, drink, smoke, or touch my face at the range until I had washed my hands.
    Granted, that was back when most of what we fired was bare lead, but still a good practice.
