Watch: Pocket Shot Compact Slingshot and Arrow Shooter
Russ Chastain 04.14.16
I think all guys like slingshots, at least at some point in our lives — but they can be awkward to carry and take up a good bit of space. Plus, they can be slow to use, and trying to load the projectile in the leather portion can be tricky.
Enter the Pocket Shot, a small slingshot-like tool that’s easy to load, shoots steel balls as fast as 350 FPS, fits right into your pocket, and can even be used to shoot arrows. Sweet!
The Pocket Shot is the evolution of the slingshot. Our patented circular design allows users to load and shoot different projectiles at two to three times the rate of a regular slingshot. Perfect for hunters and recreational use as its tiny size allows you to keep it in your pocket, tackle box, or backpack while storing ammo in its watertight compartment. Up to 350 feet per second, the Pocket Shot is not a toy. Created and built in the USA, our team takes pride in our invention and hopes you enjoy it as much as we do.
The key to the thing is the circular rigid plastic part and a rubbery pouch that attaches to it. Just drop a projectile into the pouch — they recommend smooth spherical objects such as marbles or ball bearings, between 1/4″ and 5/16″ in diameter — pinch the pouch ahead of the ball, pull back, and let ‘er rip.
They say NOT to use very small projectiles such as BBs “as they will tear the pouch and may be dangerous.”
And it’s made in the USA!
I want me some of this.
