The Hammer looks like an old-school wrist rocket, without the wrist support, but instead of surgical tubing it has a patented latex pouch. There’s no pinching a projectile inside a piece of leather. Drop ammo into the pouch, draw, and shoot. The company says they can fire steel up to 350 feet per second. I believe them. The bearings I shot punched through every one of my soda cans, and the many more I’ve shot since—out to, and including, 20 yards. You could absolutely use it to hunt small game, if slingshots are legal to use in your state, or silently put down a nuisance critter in a trap out by the trash cans. (Don’t ask me how I know.) To be clear, the Pocket Hammer and smaller Pocket Shot are not toys. My son doesn’t shoot it and won’t for several years. Even a ricochet off a misplaced shot could crack a car windshield.
