I've had the same pair of Mpact Mechanix gloves for probably 5 or 6 years now - got them on sale at Canadian Tire for like $30. Best money I've spent.
I've been shot in the fingers/hands several times - they take a lot of the impact out, stings a little, but not nearly as bad as bare hands. And yes, they can be a little warm in the summer, but they're not really that bad. I've used Mechanix gloves both at work (as an auto tech) and on the field, and I swear by them.

“But Lord,” asked Gabriel, “Is this not too generous to these Canadians?”
And God replied, “Just wait and see the neighbors I shall inflict upon them.”
