    I've been toying with the idea of using a proper glove for a while, but so far I've not tried one.
    I always use the form best I wear when I'm hunting, which are Mechanix work gloves with a slit in the thumb and forefinger on each hand.

    Using a hamster gained me 5 or more points at each shoot, would a proper glove make a marked difference?

    Id say yes Pete,
    When I first started comps an experienced shooter told me to buy a glove and don't buy cheap cos it will earn you that extra point or 2 when the borderline shots happen.
    Ive got an Anschutz 110 which I bought and rarely used as I felt out was too snug despite following the size guide at intershoot..

    I should just man up an stick with it

    Open sights and a Anschultz shooting glove, :D. You star, credit mate.

    I have just started to use a glove, on my springer it definately helps.

    When I saw this post last week I didn't quite understand what the anschults gloves were, I thought they were just posh expensive gloves!
    However, I saw some being used at a shoot on Saturday and now I understand why people use them. They're like someone has stuck anti slip tape all over them! I can see how they would help in certain circumstances like gripping a peg or tree.
    It's not for me just yet I think I'll stick to learning the basics first & go from there.
