I recently got a HP 9mm and maybe my hands are a little too big for the gun. I often get some friction between the second joint at the back of my thumb and the slide as it comes back. This results in bleeding after a few dozen rounds, and of course burnt gunpowder gets into it, etc - it gets quite messy and is very painful in that area. I don't want to bleed all over the gun, range, etc and I'm sure the range would be better without it, too. I've considered wearing some gloves, but I'm not sure what is the best kind to get while still preserving dexterity and freedom of movement. I also want to get some that will last for a while, without the slide chopping them up. Most of the "shooting gloves" I have been able to find in stores and on the internet offer only a thin layer of protection where it counts most - on that spot where the slide cuts my hand up. Any recommendations?
