Hey! So amongst many other things I am in the market for, one of  them is a good pair of shooting/tactical gloves. As much as I enjoy my lightweight nomex flight gloves, I often find myself figeting with  them and its annoying at this point. I heard the PIG gloves were great (there was an article on here about them) and I have heard good stuff about camelbak's line of gloves, and mechanix, but not really sure whats all to go with...whether it is either of these or something completely different.Any suggestions?

Aren't the PIGs on BO until the end of summer?

I have a pair of Kinco #2031's, which work well. 3 fingers are cut off, pointer, middle, and thumb, and they are great for shooting. Take a bit to break in, but they work well, and are cheap ($20). Made in Pakistan, unfortunately, but good quality none the less. Only other glove I would recommend would be a pair of folding mitten Carhartt gloves. These are mittens, but the mitten part folds back to reveal cut a cut off glove, where it only goes halfway up your fingers. Same thing on the thumb as well.

I have a pair of Mechanix gloves that I've been using for awhile and love them.

I get the normal aviator nomax gloves on eBay or where ever, for about 5-10 a piece, and send them to a lady close to me, she cuts them Down to just paste the wrist for 2 bucks a pair, so I end up with a glove that works wonders for 7 to 12 a pair

I used some Oakley SI assault glove knock-offs for about a year and still use them today for screwing around with but I loved the look so much that I ended up buying some real ones and though you pay a premium for Oakley they are pretty bad ass gloves.

Check centcomsurvivor's review on the pig alpha gloves. I don't have the link handy, but you should be able to find it on the ITS site easily enough.

hmm. having small hands make the glove fit really difficult. I always end up with cycling half gloves, but the gel pads along places like my thumb really reduce fatigue.

I have embarassingly small hands for a guy. I was a runner up in the BK Whopper commercials.
I wear small mechanix gloves and small PIG FDT-A gloves - come to think of it most gloves I'm a small in.

You can only buy the PIG gloves through SKD. Measure your hand using their sizing guide to choose the right size.

You might also want to hit a golf store and try on golf gloves. You will quickly gain a pretty good idea about both hand size and finger length. They are the thinest and most tactial feeling glove that I have found. Just not too much protection in the brush.

my biggest issue is that my fingers are short, and thin, so I can't stretch width wise enough in the fingers to lose the tip gap. And nothing is worse than gloves that fit like a bad condom. so, stick with half glove, and if it's really cold, slide a pair of the childrens magic stretch gloves under the bike glove. silly? probably. but seems easier than learning to sew.
