Three pocket-sized slingshots from SimpleShot are (from left) the Axion Ocularis, the Torque and the Scout.
The SimpleShot Hammer XT (left) and Hammer LT are modular designs that allow you to swap heads for shooting ball ammo or arrows.
Slingshots come in many styles and can add game-getting potential to any readiness kit.

I thought it would be like taking a trip back to my childhood, but I found the toys had become tools and they were much more sophisticated now.

In testing an assortment of slingshots to see which might be worthwhile additions to a survival pack, I found that modern slingshots had gone far beyond simple rubber bands fastened to forked sticks. Lots of thought has gone into their design and those designs vary greatly from company to company.

MANY BENEFITS

Besides having lots of fun, I gained an appreciation for just how useful a slingshot can be. No, realistically, you probably aren’t going to be able to shoot enough small game with one to sustain yourself in a long-term survival situation. But you could use one to supplement and extend your food stores and add a little needed protein to your meals.
