A Modern Slingshot Alternative

A common topic on prepper and survival websites is having the ability to hunt and take game in a survival situation.  Almost all would agree that a small caliber rifle would be best at taking game.  However, most don’t find themselves in those “perfect” survival scenarios when they are caught out with all their gear.  Then again, most of us would consider that a welcomed campout vs a survival situation.  I digress.  Since we know that it is important to be prepared and have options no matter where we are or what type of gear we get to take a long, doesn’t it make sense that we carry with us something that would make it easy to hunt and survive?  The Pocket Shot is a small compact slingshot alternative that you should consider.

Slingshots have always been considered something that a child plays with.  I mean, come on, didn’t you have one growing up?  But the fact that you can get pretty accurate with a slingshot, and that the Pocket Shot can send a projectile up to 350 fps (feet per second) hurling at a target, makes considering slingshots or their new modern alternative, the pocket shot, something a prepper might want to carry in their survival pack.
