I don't think I've ever worn gloves when cleaning or servicing any guns. And I hardly ever, if at all, use them when doing any kind of automotive work. Not out of ignorance or being stubborn, but I prefer to be able to really feel what I'm working on. I feel more confident in noticing a problem without gloves.

I second the OP; wear gloves, period.
Organic chemists used to literally wash their hands in benzene even up to the early 1980s. The thinking was since the molecule had essentially no functionality it was harmless. It went from being a ubiquitous solvent to a pretty rare one just because of its toxicity.
