    Anyone know of anywhere local in the vancouver portland area selling shooting gloves ? I can't find any suitable for pistol shooting at the hardware store and I'm worried about buying the wrong size on line.

    I use Beretta half fingered gloves. I was troubled by the thought of getting the wrong size online also until I read the Amazon reviews on those Beretta gloves. They run real small, so by ordering a size larger I actually received a perfect fit. I know that I wanted those particular gloves and searched high and low locally.

    I did find a few shooting gloves at NW Armory. Sorry, don't remember the brand. Good luck!

    I prefer (please don't laugh) Isotoners. Easily available, cheap and do the job. (If you don't have really big hands).

    I just picked up some mechanix gloves at auto zone for 16 dollars, they work nice. The oakleys look pretty sweet and comfy tho, but 80 dollars is a bit much IMO.

    I use my dirt bike riding gloves when its cold out. I'll bet you could use golf gloves, football gloves, any glove in the sporting goods section.

    I got a nice set at Keith's. Just thin leather (no carbon fiber knuckles or other 'combat" stuff) They did not have a big selection, I just happened to find a set that fit perfectly.

    I too have been looking into getting a few pairs of shooting gloves for the range, this is what I did.
    I looked online first just to see what was out there and found that the retailers really thought their gloves were stitched with magical golden threads.....
    I then went looking locally and found some thinner summer gloves from H D, the mechanics type, gray color that got used in between range sessions. The finger tips came apart so I made them into fingerless gloves and they work perfectly.

    Now the cold weather gloves proved to be the hardest choice because of the glove thickness and the trigger guard opening. I am contemplating making a Franken pair by combining the trigger finger of a thinner pair & sewing it on...... Will see how it goes this winter..o_O

    Mechanix utility gloves are nice and thin.
    Home Depot sells firm grip gloves for $13.95 that are just about perfect. Fantastic grip.

    I go to Andy & Bax for stuff like that.
    The prices aren't bad and their winter wool clothing is reasonably priced.

    You would win that bet. I use my winter golf gloves for shooting in the cold. Did that yesterday in fact. I also use Little Hotties had warmers sometimes.
