Whats wrong with the issue black ones? How on earth can you burn yourself on the pistol grip. Admittedly the handguard can get hot after putting a few hundred rounds through it but in my experience such opportunities are very few and far between.
Do you need a piece of sponge for your bayonet as well in case you cut yourself
Burning yourself on a sa80 Guess SF isnt for you (thats sustained fire
gpmg not special forces ).Those gloves are gayer than a gay thing though
and you can probably get some cheaper at the local market.
I was joking about the intensity of the burns - they're not 1st degree but the pistol grip rubs against my skin and causes it to blister. It's because in my desperation to reduce recoil I hold the rifle extremely tightly...
You can just about make out the burn - it's pretty much healed now, but it was very nasty...
I've been told not to hold it so tightly, but at the end of the day, I'd rather be accurate and blistered than dead...
And the DPM isn't a joke - I've seen yank soldiers with camo gloves.
Just apply a corn plaster to said area or better still adjust the hold so you do not get friction burns. Incidently the weapon has sod all recoil. May I boldy suggest you stop using feminine moisturising creams.
