    Default Shooting Gloves and Springers

    Is there anyone who uses a shooting glove when shooting with a springer?

    I'm considering going this route, but am worried that the glove produce inconsistant POI when used with my trusty springer.

    Thanks

    I'm also considering shooting my springers with shooting gloves but don't know who sells good ones around. I was advised by "Darth james" (he is on the forum and apparently he is one of the best springer shooters) that it helps quiet a bit.

    Off the topic, how is your Zos holding out on the springer and is your 97 standard or have you got a kit in it?

    I believe Saan's 97 is standard. It was very twangy in the beginning but it has quitened down nicely of late. Dont know if the ZOS was on there from the beginning though.

    The glove should be better, because then you will always have a consistent rest / hold.

    Shaan, I aggree with Gerry. the glove just stabalises your wrist. You dont "hold" the rifle it mostly just rests in the glove. And the 97 is not really hold sensative from what I have picked up. Maybe just use one of our glves to shoot with. I use mine only for kneeling and standing as I shoot sitting off my arm and not knee and the glove will just be in the way.

    I have a question or two please.
    How can one take off a glove and put it on at leisure, if you can't adjust your butt pad, which is a fixture? Can one shoot with glasses or a sling on and take it off when you like?
    Proper shooting gloves can be bought from Importer. I don't know if he has stock. Be careful of the E/R though. I see it is fluctuating heavily, some days and the price of potatoes is also going up.

    I got mine from Importer. Like JT mentioned, only use it for the standing and kneeling.
    Sometimes the hand is a bit sweaty and the rifle slips. Now the rifle sits in the right spot on my hand each time so I'm more consistent with position and the end result of hitting the target. The wrist is also more stabilized as mentioned.

    Maybe we can glue the glove to the stock, then your hand will be in exactly the same position every time.

    Only problem there is, some guys would need about 1000 gloves, no names mentioned.

    You can also glue or tie the pad to the hamster or under your rifle stock, like some guys in the UK does. They use the bags that goes on a BR and tie it to the hamster so that the curve fits over the knee of the shot. Now, maybe SA might ban it here as well, as not everybody can afford a leather BR bag and it will give those that can an advantage.
