Slings & Things: GLOVES

COATS

This is actually contained within the "Sling Use" segment in the book. I gave it it's own page here because there's a lot in that chapter and catalog portion of Slings & Things. I put it inside another segment because that's where it made the most sense. After talking about getting into a sling and how to find the best place on the rifle forend to place the hand, the logical next question to answer was then how to keep it there, effectively and comfortably. Gloves!

GLOVES
As with coats, I have a large box full of gloves. I did count them and there were 15. I have worn all of them at different times and usually change gloves when I change rifles. Depending on whether it's a Service Rifle or Match Rifle, and the offhand hold used on different ones, and on the handstop, and on so on, different glove styles and also options from different makers within those styles influence choices. I even have a few for my grip-hand. What in the world does anyone do with 15 gloves? Write about them. You shouldn't need that many. You won't after you read this.


New standards. Newer options.
Old standbys. Unique favorites.
Making sense of it all, for yourself. Until you find the right one, you won't know what you're missing!

Radical close ups of every gripping surface known to modern shooting gear manufacture. Somewhat because they look really cool, but mostly because it really matters! Knowing what you are, and sometimes are not, getting for a no-slip surface can make all the difference in how effective it will be for you. No kidding. Rubber compound, texture, and even color has huge effects on suitability.
This information, of course, is also discussed with respect to mat and coat coverings, and all other things that can have it. It is ESPECIALLY important for the Service Rifle shooter to learn which coverings serve best the unique needs we have in getting traction on the rifle.
