Cold weather range gloves?

Here in MA, today, I went shooting with friends for two hours, late afternoon.
By the end, we were pretty chilly, especially hands. We shoot every weekend.

Anybody have a good cold weather type shooting glove that they like?
I find them either too bulky, or too thin to be warm.
Any recommendations? I looked at tactical type gloves online, but not really seeing anything good for cold weather.
Thanks.

Good luck I have been searching for 5 decades.

I am lucky my ranges have been just out side the door.

So even at -30 or so I have been able to get a few rounds down range.

Hand warmers in the pockets can help.

Thank you. One week, one reply.
Going to drop the handwarmer packs into these gloves.
Thanks again.

I use inexpensive ski gloves with a slit cut in the index finger of the trigger finger glove. Everything stays covered until you are ready to shoot.

They do make gloves like that so one can get the trigger finger free. As to the hand warmers; in the 60's we had a product called Joe-E that looked like a big lighter + ran on lighter fluid. I still have one but haven't seen them sold in years.


Never mistake motion for action.

This with a hand warmer in my trigger finger/hand pocket.

I was pretty happy with those gloves:


Will not last long, but cheap enough to change every few years. I believe no more in production.

Air Force (or maybe Army?) mittens, with leather palms and wool (I think) liners.

I realized if I can just keep the wind off my hands, I'm fine. For that, some deerskin work gloves I bought a size small and stretched out over time work great. I also throw a pair of the Hothands mega warmers in my pockets. Those work better than any glove.

Ive never found a glove that worked for me...either too bulky if warm, or cold hands with the others,,I use the thin ones and they are better than nothing....eskimos and RCMPs in Canada use mittons that are warm on a string around the neck with very light gloves underneath..need to shoot pull the glove off and shoot with the very light gloves on...Seems the best option to me..

I've used golf gloves for years for trap & skeet, just cut the trigger finger off so I still can feel the trigger.


Remember, forgivness is easier to get than permission.
