Do you have a Pocket Shot? — 10 Comments

  1. This is a toy. No practical use for it really other than fooling around. Are you going to tell us now that you can hunt with this and bring home game? Just selling a cheap product…….but that’s fine, its your site. I personally don’t like it being presented as something that it isn’t to make a sale.

    • May be you should try one before popping off like an assclown. Based on the one other comment you have made so far, well, not so sure you don’t have you own agenda here.

    • Dave,

      I’ve got one of these and if you think it’s just a toy then I suggest you and a couple of buddies grab a few of these and form a Mexican stand-off with them and go to town on each other. “Toy” implies fun and I doubt that kind of fun would last long.

      No, you’re not going to sell your .22 and start taking it squirrel hunting, (then again, you might if you’re up to that kind of challenge) and it does take some getting used to, but if you can hit a small animal with it then yes you could kill it, depending on what it is. It’s just a new take on an old idea that’s been around for a long time and there are people in the world who hunt with more primitive versions. And yes, it’s also fun. I think they’d be a blast for kids and even then I think you’d want to give the safety talk.

  2. We used to make these in junior high with an empty tape roll and a balloon. I imagine with stronger rubber than a balloon offers, you could get some decent velocity.
