    So my question is what type of glove do you use when wanting to dismount your hot silencers.
    Leather or something different?

    Do you let the cans cool down first?

    Are the One-Gloves rated high enough for silencers or would the silicone melt onto the can?

    Just looking to see what others use. Thx

    I vaguely recall using a therma-glove at one point because something went sideways, but as a general practice do not remove smoking hot suppressors. It is just easier to let them cool off all on their own.

    Most of the cans I shoot through don't get super hot. One exception is a very abbreviated, SBRed AR-15 (10½" barrel). That thing gets more than a little toasty. But I digress. :s0112:
