Those are real nice tactical gloves. I need a replacement glove and might place an order from them.

These gloves are supposed to be very nice; but they are expensive compared to the competition. That is a good thing anda bad thing.

The Hellstorm gloves are going to be 'released' at the SHOT show and even the samples aren't at Blackhawk yet (you will notice that they are not even on my site yet becaue I don't want to sell them until I know when I will be able to get them in stock).

Wow Brad - seems everywhere I post that same message of yours keeps popping up ;)

I placed an order today. I understand the unvieling will be at the show - but I think the gloves can be had sooner. At least I hope so, or I'll be out of country when mine come in :D

Retail may be expensive - but at the link in my last post Everything is 20% off retail :)

Happy holidays!!!

What tatical/shooting glove do you recommand?

What do you plan on doing? Just shooting or more?

For just shooting.....
The PeaceMaker Driving / Duty / Shooting Glove

The Peacemaker looks like a good basic glove.

I ordered a pair of S.O.L.A.G.s for use at work --

S.O.L.A.G. (Spec Ops Light Assault Glove)

Made of advanced synthetic composite materials, it is breathable, quick drying and lightweight with amazing durability and dexterity. Designed with full wrist support, double back of hand adjustment system, multiple stitch layer design for enhanced gripping power. Ideal for land or water ops

I think that they'll be just the ticket.

The nomex type are always good -

been operating with a pair of Army issue ones for years

Have fun out there!

I like what I see about the Hellstorm; but I have been around this business long enough to know that I am will wait until I have product in my hand before I start talking about how great it is. I am excited, but will hold off on praise until I see more out of these other than a glossy add.

I use Hatch which are a nice cheap glove (the Operator are even better than that); but the Woodland Industries gloves that were sent to me as a sample were very nice. I am thinking for the money (until I can evaluate the Hellstorm with my own hands) the Woodland Industries has the nod.

I will let you know for certain after the SHOT show.

I'd be hesitant to jump on the bandwagon if it was not a company like Blackhawk. I've been using their gear for a long time now - and have no problem vouching for the quality of any of their present or future products. :D

I'd feel the same way if Eagle or LBT had announced that a new product was coming out soon. Great companies make great products, I don't see why that would change.

Happy holidays :)
