Great Gloves source
« on: Jan 13, 2010, 02:11 AM »
I've been eyeballing these gloves for years, and now that I've been bitten with the Mando-Mites, I think these would be great to accompany someone's beskar'gam, so I thought I'd share!
These are perfect! No labels, form fitting, futuristic looking, and best of all: 8oz of steel shot in the knuckles and finger tops!
These are actually self defense gloves, but for Mando uses, they're perfect!

Those are likely and possible to be banned in certain states and mostly likely not allowed in a good number of Cons due to the fact they have steel shot added to them for adding weight/pain to a punch.

A likely risk, yes.

It can't ship to NY because it's illegal there.

I was thinking about these as well.  They are considered self defense, non-lethal weapons.  But, to my knowledge, they are illegal in three states.

Edit: I decided against them because of this.

And will likely not be allowed in most cons, either.

Ij'ika, you're such a joy-killer, LOL.

I've looked at getting some of those before but don't have to money for that kind of thing right now. My only expenses are my Mando, school, rent, and snacks. LOL

Even if they are banned at cons, I doubt anyone would really notice if you are wearing them.

By most state laws, they are treated like saps (which they count as, especially named sap gloves), brass knuckles, and whatnot. I bet you could get through most con security with them, but I wouldn't push breaking weapon laws.

Oh of course. I'm not condoning anything here.

I do wonder though...if you were caught with those, would you pull your fake gun on them and tell them to leave?

I kid!

Seeing as these are non-lethal and cons usually only have rules against working airsoft, soft projectile, watergun, or firearms and sharpened (sometimes un-sharpened) swords and daggers...I have yet to see anything not allowing gloves.

I would just use discretion, and of course...remind you that you are using these for a costume...not for self-defense.

as was stated previously, they are classified as saps. specifically in california, they are called sap gloves. mere possession of them in california is a felony weapons charge. use of them is a felony assalt with a deadly weapon. i'm guessing new york is similar which is why theyre not shipped there.

that being said, i guarantee you that if push came to shove, those woulf not be as effective real worl melee weapon as my costume gloves are. ive never been jammed up at an event  for mine and EVERYTHING'S illegal or against the rules here in california.

personally, if your state doesnt have a law against them and youre using them for a costume i dont have an issue with and at 20.00 the price isnt bad.

another option that looks a bit more like the canon pic of the eu crushgaunt or just makes a cool armored glove are these...

half the price with free shipping. they come in black and green, full fingered or fingerless. search armored paintball gloves pvc.

They pretty sweeet. I can see why some states would mark them has illegal though. Still a great find in my eyes.  :)
