Whats up with the gauntlet that Clint wears on his right hand? I thought he was supposed to wear it on his left hand, because thats his fanning of the gun hand?

It could be just a brace for his gun hand wrist. Though others wear them for fanning.

Why would it be used for fanning?

Fanning a gun does no damage to your hand at all. It doesn't hurt or anything unless you mess up.

On a real gun, not a replica, ( a real gun has a much stronger spring) if you do it a lot and you don't have a calouse built up on the rim of your palm you will break the skin, the brace is used by some CAS to prevent this.

It stabilizes the wrist for less gun recoil,and a more accurate shot.

Kind of a  modern counterpart to the bowguard that a medieval archer would wear.  There's a moving scene in the first Lord of the Rings film where Aragorn takes the slain Boromir's bowgaurds and wears them for the rest of the trilogy, symbolizing the bond between the two men.  I could see Mortimer doing that for Manco, had things gone awry...but I'm glad they didn't!  :)

If I remember correctly, Tuco wears it in some of the scenes in GBU (after he robed the "gun store").

Pablo it would probably be eaiser to make your own out of cow hide, just sew it together with catgut it would look more like Manco's that any store bought machine sewed one anyway. O0
