Ok, I wear batting gloves regularly, but wanted to get a warmer glove for the upcoming winter (DC area).

1. warm
2. firearm/weapon control
3. able to write with

Any ideas?

Thanks and best, Coop

Rubber gloves under your regular leather/kevlar gloves would work great and also the rubber gloves would not ad a noticable thickness to your regular glove size.....

Just try it before you try and debunk the idea .... it used to work for me on cold winter days and nights in Tennessee

Gloves

Neoprene dive gloves. Make your hands smell terrible, but warm enough for Minnesota before I moved to warmer territory. Block wind and cold very well and are thin enough to shoot with.

Thanks for the replies. When you say rubber gloves, do you mean latex?

I have tried this but my hands sweat like crazy.

Thanks for your time, Best -Coop

I used to wear "Isotoner" gloves, they were thin enough that you didn't have to cut out the trigger finger. However, whichever glove you choose, consider doing not only some dry fire practice, but run through some speed and tactical reloads just to make sure you can manipulate all the controls with the gloves on. BTW, during a reload, its easy to get a pinch of material from the palm caught in the slide...
