    Default Why the glove?

    Could someone please explain why so many guys use a glove on their supporting hand when shooting. I can understand why the glove could help a springer recoil naturally and as such create consistant results but I,m really battling to apply logic to gloves and P.C.P!!!

    maybe they got ugly hands which don't suite with their fancy bling bling setup...

    or simply provide better grip than sweat hand...

    I would think that even a sweaty hand provides better grip that a wooly glove but as you say maybe it is chewed fingernails or dirt that,s been hidden for photo,s he he

    Some of the top guys believe it seperates your pulse in your hand from disturbing the gun.

    it's not a belief but the absolute truth...try a glove for standing and kneeling shots and you will never shoot without one again

    Welding gloves I,ve got but I think mine are a bit bulky for shooting, I,ll look like a tosser for sure! Thanx none the less for the advice, I,m really intrigued, theres absolutely no way I would have reached that conclusion.

    The gloves help for standing and kneeling shots, as Guido said. for me they provide much better grip than my sweaty palm..

    I have never tried them for positional shots.For standard FT position I got a strong feeling I was waisting my time.

    Then again there are other factors involved that make me miss the standing shots.
