I use my old "Class A" dress uniform gloves from the Army...just cut the index and middle finger on the right hand, good to go.
They worked on deployment, they'll work playing pball.

Cheap too...like 5 bucks at your local surplus shop.

Mechanix Mpact 3 gloves

Had them for a year now and I love them. Think oakley tac gloves with cloth covering the molded knuckle portion.

(and no, they dont cost $45, they just do on their website.)

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


SUG's are also my favorite choice, I have a couple pair.. cant beat the price

I went to Menards ( like a Home Depot) and got mechanic-type gloves. They make your hands black if you sweat, but it washes off in the shower. They're like $10. I can trigger just fine, and they're very comfortable. The leather portion is made of goatskin, which is very tough, but not as thick as cow hide, which makes them very nimble. I'll edit in the brand later. I also use them to work when I do man-work. :D Like construction....which I am about to go do....:D sucks working two jobs. :mellow:

EDIT: Dickies! They're Dickies.

Mechanix impacts are what I use and have for awhile now. The fit and function of them are the best I have found so far for under $30.00.

I have used many gloves over the years, and thus far the JT Team Gloves are the nicest. The best part is that they do not leave your hands black either.
Coming soon.

Used Mechanics gloves for a while, they bleed on your hands. Then switched to a NEOPRENE tactical glove that was fantastic but didn't stand up to the rigors of playing. Finally started using these tactical gloves, they are awesome.

They are both comfortable, and durable and complete the MILSIM look that I am going for very well. Also they come up on your wrist higher than most gloves so offer more comfort and extra protection.

I have a pair as well. I used to have the Walmart kind he's talking about until I got a hand shot. Those gloves are good for grip, nothing more, and it hurts to get a handshot with those little flimsy things. The SUG's have protection, grip, the option of solid black for us woodsballers, and freedom of fingers.
