Some of you work in parts of the country where gloves aren't necessary, but most of us need to wear gloves at least part of the year. Obviously, gloves make it difficult to perform normal patrol and police work such as writing citations or taking notes, and of course, they can really interfere with shooting. The sad reality: Most of us don't practice enough shooting with gloves, and in really cold climates where thick gloves or mittens are necessary, shooting with them is all but impossible.
One trick I use in New England, where it can get down to -20 degrees F, is to make my winter default not wearing gloves. I keep them in a cargo pocket and only put them on when I need to. If I'm outside during a long enough stretch to require them, I don them then. And if I have to shoot in a hurry with the gloves on, I discard the shooting-hand glove as part of my draw stroke. I simply bring my hands together at my center, grab the tips of my shooting-hand glove with my off hand and withdraw my strong hand from its glove as I go for my gun. Note: Practice this technique extensively to make it effective and automatic.
