The Pocket Shot

Shoot 350 Feet Per Second with The Pocket Shot

It’s always cool to review a new product that I’ve never seen before. I was surfing the web and ran across this nifty device called The Pocket Shot. Essentially it’s a slingshot alternative that uses a rubber latex pouch attached to a circular casing to launch the ammo into the target.

Until recently it never really occurred to me that they could be used in self defense and not just hunting small game. In a survival situation, ammunition will be scarce and most will eventually run out unless they have a means of making their own – even then gun powder is hard to reproduce without certain key ingredients and those will also be in high demand. Therefore you must learn to utilize unconventional tools and alternative means to protect and hunt.
