improve glove friction?

I got a pair of MPACT gloves. These are definitely the older gen where there is no grove on the trigger and thumb fingers. So story short, when I try to change mages, I tend to drop them as they slip way.

At this point I am considering to cut off the fingers (NOT my own fingers, the fingers on the glove, and not while I am wearing it) but before I go that path, are there other options I can try?

Grip tape on the magazine, around the bottom of the mag should help

which model and year of mpacts? I've had several and they weren't nearly as slippery as you're describing.

Grip tape on the trigger and the magazines. Or man up and dump the gloves.

grab harder? If there's not grip on the gloves, change gloves. I recommend outdoor research gloves.

I'd start off with the one on the very left.

I use those gloves at work, and for airsoft. I have not dropped anything or lost grip on something.

I'll start with the one on the right. LOL

I am going to agree that maybe loose the gloves. Unless you are scaling stuff and pulling on jagged metal/splintery wood its more a fashion thing than a need in airsoft. (yes i have taken quite a few BBs off the hand and they do hurt like a bitch)

If you wind without gloves you are still having issues with holding your stuff and it slipping.. Well then start cutting off fingers

Get the right gloves my friend. And I know mages are pansies, but I don't feel bad about dropping them.

What are they some sort of plastic storm trooper gloves? Those guys can't shoot for beans.

Are they mittens?

I can't comprehend how its even possible to drop a mag that has a base plate and blame lack of friction

Also, not for show or you're not crashing through the brambles and/or crawling through the mud enough. The back of your gloves should be able to dent a car door and the palms should be able to grab some boob and still get something out of it... Does that make sense?
