    Hello
    This is my first post. I've been advised to get a shooting glove but haven't the faintest idea what to look for. Can anyone recommend a type or brand they have had a good result with? Thanks in advance

    I'll second Greg's choice! Excellent glove for the money. The 110 model is the same design, just a different colour if you prefer a blue/red combo!?

    Agree with the two Gentleman above.

    I have had mine for over a year now and it has been uesd in all weather's, I shoot HFT and the glove can get very muddy at times, and I either throw it in the washing machine or use a pressure washer to clean it and the glove still stands up to all that abuse

    Excellent bit of kit, especially at that price. I have had cheaper and they haven't lasted, had one from another maker and as soon as it got wet the dye would run, ending up with you having a red hand.

    Totally agree with you had anschutz 110 because of material they made of not forgiving esp ones that are part leather that why picked maestro design glove made of stretching material bit more forgiving especially for big hands

    Tip: Buy 2. Gloves can change, and if you have a design you like then it's life span will be twice as long if you swap it each shoot. Plus on days where you get wet and have to shoot the next day then you'll have a dry one.

    Got my glove(s) from sure shot airguns. Both are still holding strong a year on and they’ve been subjected to everything from mud to glorious sun!
