The Pocket Shot Review

I was asked by the team at The Pocket Shot to see if I would be interested in reviewing The Pocket Shot. I was slammed but agreed to put my hands on one and give it a fair review. When it arrived, I took it out and shot a few shots through it at a can. I thought it was a little hard to figure out how to aim it effectively so I sat the whole contraption on my desk and let it sit there for a couple of months.

This weekend I picked up The Pocket Shot and spent some time with it during an hour of free time. I have one of the black pouches, the blue pouch and an orange pouch with a whisker biscuit specifically for shooting arrows. After spending a little bit of time shooting The Pocket Shot and figuring out how to aim, it was pretty great.


What is The Pocket Shot?


The Pocket Shot is a slingshot on steroids. It was meant to be small and compact and provide an always ready-to-go or EDC (Every Day Carry) tool in your pocket. It is small and compact and fits easily in your pocket or your pack so it is always at the ready. The Pocket Shot is handy but like anything else it takes some practice to figure it out and learn to shoot it. I practiced with the black and blue pouch and I got pretty good. I could easily hit a soda can center punch over and over. With a serious enough force I believe I could take small game out to about six yards.


The real fun came when I put on the orange pouch with the whisker biscuit along with the arrow nock caps and broke out a few arrows. This thing is a ton of fun with arrows. I have no idea of the speed of the arrows, but it was a blast to shoot. Now this is a tool I can use in the field. I am already looking forward to the opportunity to hunt rabbits with it this fall. The arrows were easily punching holes through a soda can so with a broad head it should easily be able to take a rabbit or two.


The arrow pouch is a must buy with this unit. For backpackers, hikers and those in the prepper lifestyle, this is a pretty good back up tool to the average fishing rod and line, hook and sinker. The great thing about the Pocket Shot? The base model is $25.00, the arrow pouch is $15.00, and a pack of arrow nock caps is $4.00. So for under $50.00, you can get an arrow-shooting slingshot on steroids. What’s not to love about that?
