Those gloves that have steel shot or lead sewn into the knuckles. I saw some on copsplus.com & was wondering if anyone actually uses them on a regular basis?

I beleive they're called slap gloves, but I could be wrong.

They have been known to get someone's attention.

Gloves with weighted knuckles? Never known anybody with a pair, but I can get a pair of kevlar-reinforced leather cut-resistant gloves with steel shot sewn in the knuckles. They're sold as "police gloves" and are designed to protect a cop from sharp objects while searching a suspect. The built-in saps are a bonus.

Heck, I'd love to have just a pair of old-fashioned brass knuckles. The gloves jut make it a concealed defensive weapon that's literally always at hand.

Years ago I used them - they were quite effective and would also protect your knuckles and the backs of your hands. I would hesitate using them now - they might get you sued. We also carried blackjacks - leather saps with a piece of lead in the striking end - back then. But those would also probably get you sued now. We rely more on expandable batons and OC now.

Are they any good for full power shots

They are quite effective for full power shots but the threads holding the shot in the glove eventually broke on mine and the shot started falling out. They might be made tougher now - this was probably 25 years ago.

Yes, I use them to train my nuts and scrotum to take full power shots.

I had a pair. I think I lost them though.


They were great. Mine had lead powder so it would absorb shock and weight your knuckles. I could hit a wall and it not hurt.

The paid I had was pretty tough, Got a few peoples attention also. They didn't come apart but the leather sap I had that came with the gloves came apart after one use.

They were originally developed for Donkey-Punching. Really.

I had a good pair a few years ago. Very durable and very effective.

You coudl be wrong, you are wrong, and have been wrong many times before.

Come to think of it, i tihnk you're wrong more than you're right.

I had a pair. They were pretty neat, I could punch a brick with them. They're not really good for cold or wet weather, though.

Leather is low quality too.

Care to tell us where discriminating ARFCOMmers might find such merchandise available for sale?

Roll of quarters in the pocket has worked for me in the past. No I am not LE.
