    Winter Pistol?

    Like most of you, Iím invested in Glocks, but they have one real negative for me, the trigger guard is very small, too small for winter gloves. Is there a favorite out there that can be used without shucking your gloves??

    Change gloves, not guns. Several products from high quality outdoor tech gear makers fit HG, SG, rifle trigger guards. I am particularly fond of several Black Diamond variants I've been wearing this year, -20 and up. Buy once, cry once. http://www.blackdiamondequipment.com/en_US/mens-gloves

    Most of the guns that have trigger guards large enough to use with lobster mitts and the like are going to be DA/SAs: USPs, HK45 (NOT USPcs, HK45cs, P30s, or P2000s), Beretta 92s, Px4 Storms, SiG P220-series, old Smith DA autos, and Ruger DA autos.

    Actually, the P320 might have a large enough trigger guard.

    A flat-faced trigger in a Glock might give you enough space, too.

    Having said that, I have a pair of Black Diamond gloves and they are shockingly warm, considering how thin they are (I have cheap gloves that are about as thick that don't keep my hands near as warm as my Black Diamonds do).
    " Political tags ó such as [...], communist, democrat, [...], fascist, liberal, conservative, [...] ó are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort. "

    Don't get these.

    Material is stiff and I don't think they are as warm as their standard material gloves.

    I roll two different gloves as base layer inside bigger mitts or as aroundtown gloves.

    1) OR Storm Track, you donít always feel the trigger break but pretty close - https://www.outdoorresearch.com/us/e.../2448810001007


    2) Cabelas Kangaroo Shooting gloves, looks like these may have fell to the BassPro lowest common denominator approach, but awesome feel/warm - https://www.cabelas.com/ensemble/Sho...loves/4217.uts

    Donít wear gloves. Place your hands inside your jacket pockets if they get cold. If you see a potential threat, take your hands out. Simple

    Kinda what I was thinking. It gets cold here but the only time I wear gloves is when shoveling snow. Otherwise, going from car to building and back the gloves are actually a pain in the ass. I just either put hands in pocket or just tolerate it for the min or so it takes to walk

    I think for activities such as walking the dog, for one example, one would want to wear gloves.

    To make a good decision the OP needs to define the temperature range he wants the gloves to suit.

    You can go with lighter gloves if you keep the wrist and back of the hand warm, so insulating the lower arm, back of the hand and wrist area is important.

    Bare or pocketed hands are not an option in many conditions and circumstances. I understand where that idea comes from and why, but it simply isn't practical sometimes. And there's less/no need for it when acceptable products are available.

    Good advice on keeping wrists warm. Snugpak and a few other companies have put thumb loops on cuffs of insulated jackets for that reason. Keeping the torso warm in general can keep extremities warm as well.

    In addition to walking the dog, etc. requiring hands out of pockets, cold often goes with ice and hands in pockets may cause some time dependent issues on regaining balance or breaking a fall in addition to non ice footing hazards.
