What do you guys do with a sweaty grip?

1673 Views 9 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  ORCA
Welp, I've always had problems with my palms sweating. When it comes to holding a mouse, playing a game, driving, or shooting, when I grip something, my palms get all sweaty. Obviously this results in a very very poor grip over my gun, which becomes quite annoying. What do you guys do to get rid of this problem? My only thought is gloves, but I might look a bit odd shooting in 90 degree heat with gloves on.

Any suggestions?

I've been wearing the Blackhawk S.O.L.A.G. line or tactical gloves for shooting for a few years now. I already pre ordered of desert version which are built for hot weather adn better heat flash protection with Nomex:

So as far as looking odd, nah. We gotta whole army out in Iraq wearing gloves in 100+ degree weather.

Other then that I've used the alumagrips system, but not sure it will help with your sweaty hands, but they make an excellent rasp.
if it is a glock, throw it in the dishwasher, wash off the sweat, dry it and fire the damned thing! :D
I have skateboard tape on my grips. It helps with recoil

Too abrasive for me. It tears up clothing and skin.

Try Made from the taint of a female panther!

Ahahahaha! Man, you just made my day.

Anyone else wear gloves? I was thinking about picking up these at Galls:

Seem like they'll give a good grip, and I'll have my fingers left for the tactile sense.
well those are bike gloves. and very paintball/glam metal half finger-esq... But the Damascus brand's quality is realted to their price. Cheap. They fall apart pretty quickly.

Here's some links to Damascus tactical gloves that also have customer reviews:

I'd still suggest the Blackhawk line. My oldest are over 3 years old and are worn for shooting and helo flying at least twice a month.

Don't let the full fingers fool you. these and later models are built for hot weather, but also provide flash/heat protection from the firearm.

Hatch is another decent manufacturer. I have a pair of their short cuff flight gloves, that are my backup in the helicopter and help keep your fingers warm at altitude.
