XTech Tactical Releases The Pistol Training Gloves

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 [email protected].

    I’m not sure I get this. Everyone’s hands are different, in fact most people have different size right and left hands, long thumbs, short thumbs.

    Not using these gloves ever myself I see someone using them and focusing so much on “locking” them that they get frustrated because they can’t do it.

    Someone who has used them may have a different opinion and enlighten me/us.

    Looks like another attempt to shortcut experience. Probably a good tool for ROs and staff to have, though.

    I have mixed feelings about this concept. People have different hand sizes, and frankly not everyone holds a pistol the same way. Instructors need to allow for individual variance, as long as the student stays safe and shoots accurately

    Everyone has different hand sizes, hence they offer different size gloves.
    Not everyone holds a a pistol the same way either; but most instructors I’ve taken classes with advocate the same basic grip and finger positions, with minor variations (like pressure etc). I’d say that you’ll find more similarities in grip technique among good shooters vs differences.

    I’m going to try these out on my 9-year old son, who I’ve just started teaching to shoot a handgun. I noticed that he had difficulty maintaining a proper grip after the first couple of shots. We’ll see if these work as advertised/designed.
