  1. Aldi are selling neoprene fishing gloves for £4.99 at the mo' .Bought a pair and have tried them out shooting and they are quite good for the price , considering most shooting places charge about four times as much for them.
    Worth a look , particulalrly for wildfowlers.

    I prefer climatec, macwet by Barbour, if I need to wear gloves when shooting, thems the ones. Not great in the wet but neither is neoprene and they arent leather so wont shrink or leave green dye on your hands when wet!
     
  3. sorry for ignorance lads. other than not having gunshot residue on your hands in case the plod catch up with you, what exactly it the point of wearing gloves for shooting, unless if you are hunting polar bears?
