Shooting gloves should allow the shooter to maintain a good grip on the gun, and also control the recoil. Gloves made from Kevlar remain flexible and fit snugly, and gloves that have soft knuckles offer lightweight insulation and protection.
Any shooting glove should be tight enough to allow the shooter to pull the trigger easily, without material getting in the way. Some shooting gloves feature thinner material at the fingertips to ensure convenience for the shooter.
Some winter shooting gloves feature articulated fingers, to allow for finger mobility in a thicker glove. Some gloves feature a finger and thumb made from a different material so that hunters can operate their guns and handle ammunition with maximum dexterity.
