Shooting with a glove

Post by 1joel1 on 3/14/2013, 10:17 am

When I shoot my .45, the gun tears at my trigger finger and the gap between my thumb and first finger. I have small hands and it is a stretch so I shoot with an old glove that offers protection. I don't know if I could shoot a whole match with my .45 without a hand in sore shape. My question is, is it legal to shoot with a glove on the shooting hand?

Thanks in advance,

Joel

NO is the answer to wearing a glove, it is not allowed, but you can put a band aid or a piece of duct tape works good in the web of the hand to prevent hammer bite. Sounds like you need to get some thin grips and have a gunsmith install a beaver tail grip safety, that should cure your problems.

good thing you dont shoot a beretta, those things have a really fat grip.
Try a trigger with a shorter length also. Can you post a picture of your 1911?

Here's a quick pic. Nevermind, I keep getting an error. " I reduced size to less than 600 x 600, but it won't load.

Could not upload file : exceeded total storage space. (Free space : 5)"
