so, its time to upgrade my gloves.

are all gloves the same? or does one brand stand out from the others?

If there was a fire in your house, and the first thing you would grab is your paintball gear, put this in your sig. (good thing i keep my bible in the car)

uhm. I went with Empire Gloves just because it went with all m other gear, I'd recommend just going on Action Village and checking them out. They are generally the same, but some have interesting features.

I use weight lifting gloves. Their fingerless and have pretty good padding on the palms and fingers.

I use some glvoes I got in the Hardware Department at Wal Mart. They are fingerless and have padding on the knuckles. Which is nice for those hands shots when your a drummer and your career depends on your hands....

I wear the same ones. Theyre only like 5 bucks a pair, and they work great. I believe SUG(sport utility glove) is the brand name

You are correct. They are very nice gloves, and very comfortable. But last I checked, I didn't see them at Wal Mart anymore. They may have just been out of stock.

What kind of gloves are you looking for?

Blackhawk gloves are extremely comfortable, and a pair will last you for years. They're also $50 or more per pair.

I really like Extreme Rage's gloves. They're $10 a pop and feel great. I've heard that they have turned people's hands black before, but I've never seen it.

Well, it depends what you do with your trigger. If you can walk it, you need those two fingers bare. I pump, so I use the "FG" firm grip fake leather gloves, with all fingers on. It stops my hands getting dirty if I touch a painted bunker, dirt, and it gives me a nice grip on the pump handle. I don't really need to pull the trigger that quick, so they work well. They have knuckle and top hand padding, and if you need, you can easily cut off fingers. They're like $10.

EDIT: BTW, they;re from home depot.

are they comfortable and still let you move your hand easily? what about a nice grip on your gun?

I have a pair of invert gloves, and a pair of Empire SE Gloves, and Empire LTD SE gloves, and the empire gloves are much better than the invert gloves. The Empire LTD SE has to be the best glove I have ever worn.
