Date Published: 08/03/2015 9:22 AM (Updated: 03/15/2017 11:22 AM)
The Pocket Shot is a circular weapon/survival tool/toy that works as a slingshot, a fishing pole, and even a bow. Even though it may look like a balloon tied to a cut up Gatorade bottle cap, it's actually an extremely compact yet powerful tool that's able to whip a variety of different shaped and sized objects at up to 350 feet per second. The patented circular design of the Pocket Shot allows you to load the device, aim it, and hit different projectiles at two to three times the rate of a regular slingshot.

The Pocket Shot is extremely compact as it measures just 1.3 inches deep when closed, which makes it perfect to carry around in a pocket, backpack, camping gear, or tackle box (hence the Pocket Shot name).
The Pocket Shot can essentially shoot anything that you can fit inside of it, but in order to not tear the pouch, it's recommended to use 1/4 inch to 5/16 inch steel slugs, marbles, or small paint-balls to use it as a slingshot. You can also use it as a bow by attaching the whisker biscuit and loading in an arrow. But best of all you can use it as a fishing rod, by flinging your hook out into the water, and reeling it in by winding your line around the outside of the rim. Granted you'd probably only use it as a fishing rod in a survival-type situation.
The Pocket Shot is made from a latex pouch, and a fiber reinforced composite outer ring that holds the pouch in place. The slingshot comes with two different types of latex pouches, a standard pouch which are the most durable and will last for up to 300-500 shots with speeds at up to 275 feet per second, and then there's the pro-pouch that's made to be more stretchy, easier to shoot, and will inflict more damage, but will not last as long as a standard pouch. The pro pouches will last for up to 200-400 shots, and will allow you to shoot at speeds up to 300-350 feet per second. Click here to see the different types of pouches.
With the waterproof pouch you can easily store your ammo right in the slingshot itself to assure your ammo is safe and dry. Click here for a 250 count package of ammo that's meant to be shot by the Pocket Shot slingshot.
