I usually don't wear gloves unless my arthritis is acting up. It helps dull the pain of recoil. As far as driving gloves, I don't race but I drive 600 miles a night. I wear driving gloves when arthritis acts up.

I actually prefer to shoot with gloves as it provides more grip for my sweaty meat sticks. I have several pairs of "Shooting Gloves" several pairs of work-gloves but my favorite thing to shoot with are a pair of batting gloves. The batting gloves have the smallest profile and also provide the best grip.

Driving gloves are to prevent your hands from getting burnt to a crisp when your car crashes, rolls 8 times then catches fire. Same reason they wear a racing suit.

I see what you did there.

If it's done correctly, the sling doesn't come into contact with either hand. The primary two purposes of wearing a shooting glove(s) and/or mit:

1. Help prevent slippage of hand on stock once in shooting position, especially during rapid fire, and

2. Help prevent the pulse of the shooter's hands being transmitted to the firearm, hence, a better and more stable sight picture.

Both of the above are very important when shooting long distances out to 1,000 yards and beyond.

I haven't, but am going to start. Bad psoriasis on my hands. Nasty cracks and so forth are even worse after a bit of shooting.

Paddys Pub! Home of the ORIGINAL Kitten Mittens! I wear 5.11 gloves with a great grip when I shoot outdoors in bad weather because I don't want to somehow slip and drop my gun. I tend to trip over things. I'm paranoid about scratching some guns.

I've worn gloves during combat because I was told to. Doing so protected my hands from all sorts of scrapes and burns, and I continue to wear them to shoot. It all do comes down to personal preference.

I wear gloves when I hunt because my hands get cold. Sometimes I wear gloves under shooting mittens.

I wear gel filled fingerless gloves when shooting magnum revolvers. Keeps my shooting hand from hurting.
