FirstSpear Friday Focus – Operator Glove Sneak Peek

Friday, February 23rd, 2018

The FirstSpear “OG” is a 100% US Manufactured Shooting Glove, selected by a US Special Operations Command element as issued handwear.


Utilizing a unique core spun nylon US Merino Wool sourced directly from Open Range LLC and FS High Dexterity Leather (FS-HDL) with Touch Screen Compatible Thumb and Trigger Finger the OG gives inherent “No Melt No Drip” protection in addition to the natural anti-microbial properties of Wool. The design of the glove features an almost effortless flex that makes for comfortable grip during long shooting sessions. The OG puts protection where the SF Shooter needs it and keeps the overall function light and flexible. The FS-HDL is a Goat Skin, textured to provide enhanced grip during the tanning process this goat impregnated with carbon that aids in not only shedding water but once water saturation has happened keeps the gloves soft and flexible after they dry.

For the FS-OG, the US Merino is spun around a nylon core. In this manner, the glove is a low luster product with the next to skin comfort Merino Wool while still retaining burst strength of the nylon. This material will not shine or reflect in the field even when wet. During field trials with Army SF it was found that the initial Black dyed wool used in the test sample OG’s was too hot in the Summer Sun. For this reason FS and Open Range developed three color formulations specific to this new fabric. The first FS-Commando is a light greenish hue and has FS-HDL dyed to match it, the second FS-Sand is close to light Coyote Pantone 80132 with its own matching FS-HDL and finally FS-Manatee Grey which has not yet received a NSN assignment.

With production under way, delivery of the first FS-OG’s is beginning in late March.

Within its Commercial “Hands On” Product Line, FirstSpear will still be stocking its Non-Berry: Operator Inner Glove (OIG) and Operator Contact Glove (OCG) both of which have several of the OG’s features but in two different weights (OIG is slightly lighter and OCG is slightly heavier) however the Berry Compliant OG will also be in stocking inventory to support growing SOF & DoD needs.

Milipol 17 – EMD / S&S Precision

Tuesday, November 21st, 2017


Bretagne-based EMD has an awesome booth which showcases the products of their various vendors.


Above you can see a manakin set up as a K9 handler wearing kit from a variety of manufacturers including S&S Precision.


While the booth is awesome, something S&S Precision is exhibiting in it is very interesting. They have new handwear called WetWerx Maritime Assault Gloves. Like the name says, they are designed for use in wet environments and come is cold and warm models, with usage prescribed by air, rather than water temperature.


The following construction is common to both models. The palm is Axe Suede making it very grippy in wet environments and incorporates keyhole thumb construction for improved articulation. The wrap-up index finger construction removes the seam off of your finger pad for better trigger feel. The other fingers use wrap-over construction for improved feel in the finger tips. This also makes it easier to pick things up. The trigger finger and the thumb edge (Gripmax thumb construction) are also conductive. Finally, they offer quick don and doff.

The differences come down to materials. Warm Maritime Assault Glove feature water repellant open mesh offering quick dry times. The Cold Maritime Assualt Glove is made 2mm Neoproene with wind resistant patches at the back of finger and hand. Its gasketed wrist seal prevents water flushing in order to keep your hand warmer.

Offered in standard handwear sizing in Grey. The Black colored Warm is a sample only. Available December 1st from

XTech Tactical Releases The Pistol Training Gloves

Saturday, September 16th, 2017

Designed to teach the thumbs forward grip, XTech Tactical releases the PTG (Pistol Training Gloves)

Mesa, AZ- XTech Tactical, makers of the adjustable angle ATG AR Grip and their VP9 & P30 magazines and extensions announced today the release of their PTG (Pistol Training Gloves). The patent pending gloves use hook and loop to reinforce the “thumbs forward grip”.

Check out this quick video!

The Pistol Training Glove, or PTG from XTech Tactical teaches & reinforces the “thumbs forward” grip technique used by military, law enforcement, and professional shooters. With its grip interlock technology, the PTG’s hook and loop fasteners engage only when your hands are in the correct position.  The use of this training tool will develop habits and muscle memory that build shooting skills and confidence.


The gloves are breathable, comfortable and made from high end materials. They come in a full range of sizes ranging from XS-L to meet almost any trainee’s needs. The gloves are fully ambidextrous and address a problem we can all relate to. When introducing a beginner pistol shooter to the thumbs forward grip it is often quickly forgotten. And without the instructor by the trainee’s side and prior to muscle memory being established, the trainee becomes unsure of themselves. Also, in a training environment when handling a live weapon for the first time the trainee often forgets the grip and the instructor is forced to correct them, which often requires physical contact. This can create a dangerous situation but at a minimum affects the confidence of the trainee. With the gloves, you will find the grip will no longer need to be a major focus of training and they assist in building confidence and a more enjoyable experience!


The gloves are simple to use and are an excellent tool in your range bag no matter if you are a beginner, instructor, or just act as a 2nd Amendment Ambassador and introducing others to shooting pistols!

MSRP is $34.95. They can be purchased at Dealer pricing, and special NRA instructor pricing is available. Dealer and Instructor inquiries please contact
