I need a new shooting glove. turns out the one i used to use for my old longbow couldn't take the increased stress of my new #40 recurve... that and it's old and rotten... long story short, it's dead and i need a new one. we're talking "not even fit for doggie chew toy" dead.
trying to not have to get the dura-glove off 3rivers... because that's expensive as all hell. 30 bucks plus shipping.. yeesh.

Keep shooting bare-handed and you'll adjust after a couple of months :lol: High quality gloves go up to the hundreds, but some economy gloves do a perfectly suitable job too. There are a couple on the first page of your link? Have you considered using a basic finger tab instead? I always prefer them because they don't hinder finger dexterity.
The variety available for manual labour related work gloves is kinda staggering. All sorts of special fabrics, fibers, materials, shapes and purposes. At my local home depot they have a wall of gloves about 5'X7' in size and I can't help but look it over and think of using them for swording- I'm sure something there would suit your needs for archery and maybe be able to double as a sword glove for b.y.c.
edit/add: I just thought I'd add these in since I know you already can look up archers gloves but these are little more off the beaten path to think of

Artelmis wrote I have to be able to shoot regularly... turkey hunting april 28 and i can't do that with my fingers purple... i really don't wanna have to resort to my shotgun.
How many times do you shoot in a session? I can get off a couple dozen arrows easy before my fingers get sore, not even close to purple with my #45 ELB...and I have 100% city hands, no callouses on my fingertips at all...
If the glove is necessary I'd just plop down the 20-30 bucks for one. But the feel of shooting natural is worth it IMO.
I had just been using a pair of work gloves but after trying out a friends Cordovan Shooting Glove I was sold on it. It was a great glove, and felt perfect. I liked the open design a lot though thought I would hate it.
My favorite quotes from Rorschach from the comic Watchmen
"Once a man has seen society's black underbelly, he can never turn his back on it. Never pretend, like you do, that it doesn't exist."
"None of you seem to understand. I'm not locked in here with you. You're locked in here with *ME*!"
