Mag thumb, “Garand” thumb, “stick-yourself -with-a-target-tack” thumb – forget all that. Every shooter knows you need a good pair of mitts to protect your digits at the shooting range. We live n’ breathe gloves at Range Often, so we set out to find the best shooting gloves available now. Our guys and gals took ‘em to the local skeet shoot, the hunting blind, and everywhere in between.
Field-Tested Shooting Gloves
That’s what we set out to find when we picked our selection of shooting gloves. We sourced top contenders from Magpul and PIG (loved by operators), focusing on gloves that see use in the field and on duty with favorable reports. Of course, we tested, designed, and made our own pair of shooting gloves based on our combined experiences at the range, in the blind, and behind the scope.
Measuring Your Glove Size
When you pick out a pair of gloves, be sure to record the length and width measurements of your hand. Nobody wants a frumpy glove, or one that’s too tight. To determine your length, measure the distance from the tip of your middle finger to the base of your palm. To determine width, measure the circumference around the widest part of your knuckles.
Reference the chart below to determine your glove size. This chart is specific to PIG's Full Dexterity Gloves but can be used to determine your hand size for all other available shooting gloves:
