Standard pouches are designed to be the most durable but must be replaced after a period of use. We look at them like disposable razorblades-it's a good idea to have a few extra around.
Standard pouches are rated at around 275 ft per/sec. Users will typically get between 300-500 shots off with the standard pouches using 1/4 inch or 5/16 steel before having to replace them.
Instructions for Shooting Pocket Shot
Ammo will seat itself at the bottom of the pouch automatically when dropped in because of its unique design. Shooter should grip the pouch in front of the ammo (towards the open end of the ring) but behind the "power fins" when shooting while the other hand grips the outer ring. Aim at target while pulling back pouch approx. 8 - 10 inches, and let go of the pouch while keeping a firm grip on the outer ring. DO NOT over - stretch. Tip: It is best to pull back the pouch and let go quickly rather than to hold it stretched while aiming for any length of time. When firing, make sure when you let go of the pouch that it is aligned to go straight through the base ring and not to fire an object to the inner side of the ring. Doing so may result in your ammo hitting the side of the inner ring and ricocheting or exploding (in the case of a paintball)
mportant Safety Guidelines for Pocket Shot
While the Pocket Shot can be used recreationally, it is NOT a toy. Check your local laws for age restrictions. Anyone under the age of 16 should have adult supervision during operation. ALWAYS wear eye protection. You can order it from our website or at a local hardware store. NEVER AIM OR SHOOT THE POCKET SHOT AT A PERSON. Doing so may result in serious injury.

These products are made of synthetic materials and are subject to imperfections and possible failure at any time. Inspect the pouch, its assemblies and the ring/frame before each shot for any signs of wear, breakage or cracks.
Pocket Shot Care GuidelinesStore your pouches in a cool dry place. Pouches will dry out if stored in a hot dry environment. This will create cracked and brittle latex subject to tearing. Pouches will be less tacky if a small amount of baby powder is used inside the pouch before firing. Avoid getting pouch wet (If this occurs dry as soon as possible with a cloth). DO NOT over stretch latex pouch. DO NOT freeze pouch.Liability DisclaimerUpon purchase and/or use, you agree to hold The Pocket Shot LLC and its owners, heirs, or employees of any and all product liability.
