My shooting gloves are a cheap pair of Uncle Mike's that I probably paid 10$ for years ago but they have given up the ghost. I live in southern SC and despite the ice and snow outside at the moment, it is usually warm (or hot) and humid during hunting season. The old gloves were very thin and not bad for hot weather.

I am looking at gloves on line and they look like something I would wear if I were a special operator on Seal Team 6, or involved in some kind of mixed martial arts. Very big and heavy looking. Maybe if I saw them in person they would look a little lighter weight.

I need a suggestion for a fingerless glove that might be tolerable in warm weather.

My favorite to date are by ProAim. My hands are still holding up and I blame the ProAims.

Do you want a glove with some padding in it or just a non slip glove.Golf gloves batting gloves no padding. Weight lifter gloves, anti vibration, shooters gloves have padding in the palm.If you have short fingers the padded palm can interfere with a good grip. Some mechanic gloves have padding on the back of the fingers protecting you from the trigger guard biting your knuckles .Carhart even makes a couple with padding on the fingers. I use a cut resistant glove from work with a rubber anti slip coating on the front no padding. If you can wear a large pm me and I will send you a pair to try.

Weight lifter gloves at Wally World are under 10 bucks. I bought some work gloves there that are red and black, and cut the thumb and index finger off and they work great.

Best shooting gloves I ever used were Blackhawk Firestorms. Unfortunately, they are now discontinued. Padded knuckles and palms. Made if fire resistant Nomex and Pittard leather. Impervious to barrel/cylinder flame spitting (454 anyone?). You simply washed them off if soiled, and they would dry soft. Sixty bucks a copy and worth every cent.

I have used The Gun Glove for years. I use them shooting trap, sporting clays, waterfowl, handguns, etc. Alabama doesn't get extremely cold in the winter but in the teens my hands stay comfortable. You can feel the trigger and have a good non slip grip.

I left a pair in Louisiana and my friend called and said I'm not getting them back. He loves them, they are not bulky, warm, and comfortable.

I use a pair of Caldwell shooting gloves. They're not fingerless, but you could fix that with a pair of scissors. They're not bulky either, but they definitely make heavy kickers more pleasant to shoot.
