    The pocket shot

    https://youtu.be/ASJeKomD3io

    So i picked up a few of these on a whim, and they're pretty great. I've shot slingshots, atlatl, sling staves etc and the pocket shot is something special. I've got the arrow kit but haven't been able to try it out yet. Anyone else try one of these things?

    Do you think it is a worthwhile piece of survival gear? What do you think of it as a weapon? I think its definitely the most low profile arrow thrower out there.

    I have been waiting to get my grubby paws on one.
    In theory they seem like a great idea.

    What do you think of them? Do live up to the hype?

    They look like an innocent flaccid butt plug.

    I have the original "made in America" one and the Chinese knockoff. The American one's cap is also a wrench to replace the pocket, not so for the knockoff. However the fake was $4.99 and came with an extra pouch and a bag of steel shot. Impulse buy of the year. You got $5? Get you a Chinese pocket shot to see what the fuss is about. Buy American later if you want the good one. You probably will.

    I find that my reloading rate is a bit quicker than a regular slingshot once you get it down.
