I am probably late to the party and I hope the subject hasn't been brought up before, but I was reading Jerry Hill's book on Howard Hill's shooting style and I was struck by the fact that Howard Hill, according to Jerry, cut the tip of his glove so he can feel is anchor point more accurately.

Any thoughts? To me the idea seems sound.

I make both styles but prefer the open tip because I feel like I don’t anchor as close to my face with the closed tip. If may just be my perception.

Study the various photos and videos of Hill and you'll notice he used stitched closed-end gloves, wrap-over-end gloves and open-end gloves. In the instances of the videos showing his open-end, his fingers do not stick out the ends. I've found no visual evidence his fingers came out the ends of his gloves. Not saying he didn't tell others to do it that way, I just cannot find evidence he did it, and I've found lots of evidence he didn't. Just sayin' ☺

It definitely is something that is not that obvious. Though I only spent 8 hours with Mr. Schulz, he never mentioned it and I do believe his glove covered his finger tips.

Thanks for the replies.

I do my HHA gloves that way.  I don't touch the top stitching, merely angle back the bottom part of the finger stalls.

I like mine open, but only because it allows my hand to be closer to my face.  The closed tip leaves 1/4 inch of empty glove to make mischief.  I don't need/want my finger touching my face.  The feel of the glove against my face is all I need.

So you think the open tip reduces the 1/4 play but you still like the closed tip. I guess its a matter of personal preference.

I shoot the Hill gloves better with the open finger tips.

Well, as we all know talk is cheap, so I took the plunge and cut the tip off the glove for the middle finger. I feel, with the indirect shooting style, it helped me group better because I got a little longer draw and was able to be slightly more consistent with my anchor point.

I cut the tip overlays off of a Black Widow Stick Tite glove. Been going that a few years.

It might be the beers but is your glove on backwards?

Its not the beer Mike. He is wearing the glove backwards. The reinforced stalls are on his fingernails.

Like Rob, I cut the tips of my Hill gloves back at an angle. This exposes my finger tips and I can easily feel my anchor. Otherwise, the glove tips are too long and my hand winds up too far from my face. Just my $0.02......

Bloody heck, you are correct! How embarrassing. Well live and learn.

I had to remove the pictures. [eek]

Thanks for the education.
