What is The Pocket Shot? Well, it is what I call a modern-day sling shot, but a little cooler, has an interesting design and is quite portable but make no mistake, this is not a toy!
Let's get the statistics out of the way first: The Pocket Shot is a closed pouch made of latex with a base and locking ring that compresses the latex ends. This design allows for a solid grip on the front end and a clear line of projection for your ammunition in this case a steel slug.
Pocket Shot claims that it has a projection rate of 350 feet per second, and while we did not actually use a chronograph I can say that we had to seriously tone down the amount of pull force we were using, because this little thing is deceivingly powerful. Read the rest of this review of pocket shot slingshot.
I hope the faral class doesnt find out.
Hope it doesn’t come to this
I’m sure it’s illegal to have in New Jersey.
I have a ticket, a court summons and a case that I lost..
... in connecticut....
.. for playing with a slingshot in the woods behind High Rock Range.
So yeah.. this stuff happens.
Sling shot don’t poke someone’s eye out...people poke someone’s eye out.
OK I want one. No, I want two. One for each car. Maybe three—my golf bag could use one. My mother bought me the first Wham O slingshot in the late ‘50’s. It had a white plastic handle with an ammo container in the butt of the handle. A surgical rubber sling with a leather pouch. I was pretty accurate with ball bearings and would use a pinch of BB’s for the scattershot effect.
I remember something similar in the early 1960s in MECHANICS ILLUSTRATED in which a slingshot is made with a special pocket to use lead bird shot. It worked at close range.
Jeez, it reminds me of a female condom.
On the other hand 350 FPS is quite a lot of velocity (about 250 mph).
I wonder how durable the latex is over time. Surgical tube slingshots oxidize over the course of a couple of years.
Ugh, I hope the a-holes from Antifa don’t see these things...
Looks interesting. Wonder if it’s as accurate as the old Wrist Rockets ... they were good for knocking varmints off of power lines ;-)
