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.

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.
