The Hathcock Target Sniper

     This is our most popular production level slingshot model...
With finger grooves for positive and repeatable grip placement and a nice wide and forgiving fork interior... it's designed to be the ultimate side shooter and is the one we recommend for most beginners because it's so easy to use and master... and YES it is named to honor one of the greatest of all Snipers to have ever served in the Marine Corps, Carlos N. Hathcock.

        Ergonomics is a very overused term in design... for slingshots many believe pretty much any canted handle slingshot is "ergonomic". But that is not necessarily the case. For a slingshot to be ergonomic the holding wrist needs to be in a neutral, unstressed position yet at the same time the pull forces on the forks need to be evenly distributed so that the shot itself is symmetrically released for better accuracy.... The design itself should feel comfortable, having no sharp or abrupt edges for your hand or fingers to rest on, and that's what the "HTS" does better than almost anything else!

        These slingshots are made from purpose engineered ballistic resins with internal steel reinforcement. The material is custom made with the purpose of withstanding strikes from slingshot projectiles like lead and steel balls without being easily damaged.... while at the same time providing optimal heft and rigidity so that a proper feel in the hand along with it's inherent ergonomics make for a super easy to use and aim slingshot, insuring superior accuracy right out of the box.
Featuring our extremely versatile Universal Forks, you can tie on flat bands, squares or tubes and shoot through the forks or over the top... and use ammo ranging from marbles to steel bearings to lead balls or even arrows, without any modification or alteration of any sort to the frame!
The Hathcock is offered in Jet Black with a slip resistant finish. The frame is a full inch thick X 3" between the thumb and forefinger and is very comfortable to grip for most men's hands. If you can shoot a bow... you can shoot this one!

Comes to you banded up ready to shoot and includes ammo!

ATTENTION, this is important!
Because these are our most popular, in demand slingshot... It usually takes a little while to get your order made. Sometimes up to 3 or 4 weeks depending on variables such as how many orders are ahead of you or if our raw materials suppliers are dragging their feet. So be patient, it's coming and it's worth the wait! BUT we do have many of the other models that can be out much more quickly...

Also, this slingshot is made from extremely fork hit resistant material... BUT don't store it in a place where the temperature gets over 140 degrees (F)... as the rubber-like properties of the compounded material tend to soften at that temperature. If you do get it hot and it seems soft to the touch, just let it cool down and it will be fine after that. If you MUST store in a hot place, then we recommend you consider one of the polymer slingshots from below, as they do not have that same temperature concern... They're good to go all the way up into the 200 degree range before needing to be cooled.
And just so you know, non USA orders ship without ammo due to weight and customs concerns.

The TTF Sideshooter Series

     Since our introduction of TTF OTF slingshot fork configurations in 2010... the concept has really caught on all over the world and is now quickly becoming one of the most popular methods for attaching bands and tubes there is. TTF stands for "Through the forks" and describes the flight path of the ammo, OTF is "Outside the forks" and that's how the bands are tied so when aiming you have one clean line for easy "point aiming"...
These two slingshots are designed to be shot only in a TTF band or tube configuration, for a safer and more pleasant shooting experience... They are 3/4" thick and have a smaller grip area than the Hathcock Target Sniper, about 2 1/4" between the thumb and forefinger, so they fit a greater variety of hands... From small to extra large pretty much any hand will be able to get a good firm grip on these.
Designed with perfect ergonomics and made from high density polyethylene... HDPE, same as industrial cutting boards but thicker and stronger... these are perfect "take along" slingshots.
Inexpensive and compact, you can stow one in your backpack, a tackle box, or any place that might be convenient for when you need it on the go.

The Sideshooter Standard costs less and is more basic in that you simply tie on the bands... Whereas the Sideshooter Advanced uses the titanium plate system to hold the bands in place. Both shoot exactly the same, the major differences are the advanced is a little easier to change bands on for most people and the standard has a more pocketable width due to not having the attachment hardware sticking out.

For right now, the Advanced will only be in Green and the Standard will be in Red... in time this will change but for right now it will help to speed up the process of making them.

We have a fairly large variety of HDPE slingshots and we do try to make enough in advance to fulfill orders as soon as possible... but sometimes we unexpectedly sell out of one, two or a few designs... When that happens we try to get them made as quickly as we can... but it may take a while because of other types being already ordered ahead... So don't fret if it takes just a little longer to get to you than you might be expecting... it's coming!

Basic Sideshooters

    These are the type of slingshots we usually make for the troops of Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts that order from us.

The Cub and Boy Scout series of slingshots are designed for those who prefer a touch smaller frame, yet still want superior ergonomics and precision accuracy. Made from HDPE and sporting a tool free titanium band attachment system... these are also a good choice for those who find the standard HTS just a touch to big. The Cubscout is 2 1/4" between the thumb and forefinger indentions, and the Boyscout is 2 3/4 between the thumb and forefinger.

    On request from the SERE instructors at the SERE school in Washington State, this slingshot was designed and built for their specialized needs... this slingshot is for those who need something they can count on in an emergency situation and doesn't take a huge amount of specialized training to use proficiently. The ergonomics of this slingshot allow it to be consistent and accurate "right out of the box". All one needs to know is how to hold it sideways and use the one line aiming system... within a mere few minutes of practice a person should be able to effectively use this slingshot for their light hunting needs.
The slingshot is light in weight, extremely portable (fits in a ditch bag, or bug out bag very well), extremely versatile, can use any suitable elastic and can be set up for shooting round ball ammo, rocks and or arrows.
Both the grip and forks are machined from solid half inch thick 6061 aircraft aluminum bar stock... so this is one of the strongest slingshots you can buy of this type... and because it is aluminum it's also lightweight, for those to whom weight really matters like soldiers, pilots and backpackers.

          The slingshot comes complete with the PredatorPro Attachments, the adjustable quick attach/detach arrow rest, and all the rest of the stuff you will need to get you out and shooting just as soon as you receive it.
We HIGHLY recommend watching the videos below as they describe the use much better than what we have space for right here.

Only $119.95, it comes to you banded up ready to shoot and includes ammo for all domestic orders.
To comply with laws regarding slingbows, plus worries over weight and customs concerns, international orders may prefer option 2 on the drop down menu... comes to you unbanded and does not include the PredatorPro Attachment or ammo or arrow rest. Regardless, international orders do not include ammo due to weight anyway, so this might be the best option.
Option 3 on the drop down menu is for the DIY crowd. It's the 1/2" thick cut out slingshot/forks blank just like we receive it from the waterjet company, sharp edges and completely unfinished metal.

Due to high demand and a lot hand labor involved in the production of each slingshot, there may be a lead time of a few weeks.

The TubeMaster Sniper

     This is a very popular design... and we got a good deal on getting these cut out by our waterjet guys... less work and more time savings for us means we're able get you an incredible deal on a slingshot made from premium material at a price pretty much anybody can afford!
Made from REAL carbon reinforced Ballistic Grade G10, it's light, it's strong and it is dead accurate. There's not a whole lot that we can say about this one other than stating it's size (3.95" wide X 5.25 long, 2.37 fork gap) and then referring you to the videos below... pictures are worth a thousand words, and video is worth even more. Check them out and see for yourself how this design is all about hitting the target and EDC function.
Even though it has an attractive look and feels tremendous in the hand, this one is not a "shelf queen", it's a take anywhere, shoot anything and have fun always... Sniper in your pocket!

Only $64.95, it comes to you banded up ready to shoot and includes ammo for all domestic orders. Non USA orders include the bands but are sent unbanded (Customs regulations) and do not come with ammo, due to weight and Customs concerns.

The PFS (Pickle Fork Shooter)

     Pretty much every day we get requests for this particular model/type of slingshot... and as it so happens we managed to get a special deal on getting these cut out by our waterjet guys... so we're passing the savings along to you!
The first thing you should know about this slingshot is, it is NOT a slingshot for beginners but it is a favorite among minimalists.

Made from 1/4" thick 6061 Aircraft grade aluminum these have an incredible strength to weight ratio. Even though it's only 2.5" wide X about 4" tall, it's able to be used by experienced shooters with large hands.
This slingshot does require a special way to shoot it safely and there a numerous videos on youtube that demonstrate that.

The blank model comes to you just like we get it from the waterjet company. Sharp edges make it perfect to finish out yourself if you want to add fuller grips or maybe you might want to get fancy... it's a perfect base to be creative with.

The finished model is cleaned up, then all edges are beveled for comfort and finally bead blast finished to take off the shine and look more attractive. It also comes with a regular bandset and includes ammo for domestic orders.

The BoyShot

     This is our most popular small slingshot model for people who prefer a very discreet carry slingshot.
Made from 1/4" thick 6061 Aircraft grade aluminum this is a very strong slingshot that is capable of shooting with full size hunting bands yet it can easily disappear in a pocket. Even though it's only 3" wide X about 4.5" tall, it's ergonomics and shape allow even shooters with very large hands to comfortably shoot with it.
This slingshot can be shot equally well in either a side shooting or upright forks hold, so using even large ammo with it is possible and because you have a decent fork gap there's no real need to change your pouch holding style.

The Micro Ranger

     This is also one of our most popular small slingshot models for people who prefer a very discreet carry slingshot.
This one is similar in shape and size to the BoyShot and it's also made from 1/4" thick 6061 Aircraft grade aluminum. It's also a very strong slingshot that is capable of shooting with full size hunting bands yet it too can easily disappear in a pocket.
It is only 3" wide X about 4" tall... and like the BoyShot, it's ergonomics and shape allow even shooters with very large hands to comfortably shoot with it.... you really should check out the videos below.
This slingshot can be shot equally well in either a side shooting or upright forks hold... it is preferred by many who favor a "PFS" sized slingshot.

BoyShot or MicroRanger
          Both of these models are cut out of 6061 high strength aircraft aircraft aluminum with an abrasive waterjet machine. You can choose either blanks to finish yourself in whatever style you prefer (add grips, decoration etc.) or you can simply get the ready to use models for a little more.
The blanks are just what's pictured... whereas the ready to use model is rounded over, tube holes chamfered, finger and thumb inletted, then fine sanded and bead blasted to take the shine off so that it doesn't alert game. After that it's banded up... ammo is also included with it, so it's ready to go out and shoot as soon as you get it!
Non USA orders usually ship without ammo due to weight and customs concerns.

The Polymer Range of budget priced slingshots!

     Some time ago, when we first started making slingshots for sale... pretty much all pocket type slingshots were made from a type of wood or from plywood (multiplex). We felt that with modern materials it might be possible to create stronger and more resilient slingshots than what were available at the time. So we spent a lot of time and money doing experiments on various materials and then settled on HDPE as being the best all-around material for modern designs while still being inexpensive...
At first not many agreed with us, and we did suffer more than a little ridicule for introducing "plastic" slingshots to compete against the more popular, at the time, plywood slingshots... But we stuck to our guns and kept at it because all of our testing indicated HDPE was superior in so many ways.... Because of that, since our introduction of the polymer series of slingshots in 2010, there has been a sort of worldwide recognition of how tough, versatile and useful HDPE is in slingshot production... as a result, HDPE is now one of the most used materials in pocket slingshot production.

These HDPE slingshots are hand crafted from a special marine grade board that is practically impervious to the elements... They're light to carry, easily fit in a pocket and take up minimal space in a tackle box, tool box or glove box and have good resistance to abuse like being dropped, scratched or getting fork hits.

The deal with these is, they are much tougher and a lot more resilient than almost any plywood or hardwood... but are fairly fast to make using our heavy use tools designed for working on G10 and G11 composites... since they don't take that long to make and are not polished to perfection like our high end custom pieces are... You get the benefit of a tremendous design that's comfortable, strong and dead accurate, while still being budget priced!

Solid G10 slingshots

Nothing else quite compares to the way a properly finished solid G10 slingshot feels. The weight is just perfect, the texture has just the right amount of tactile feel, strength above and beyond... the confidence these instill into the shooter.... well it's just really hard to describe... once you've shot with one, you probably won't want anything else. They're really just that good.

G10 is extremely strong, many times stronger than the strongest wood.
Think of how plywood is made... a thin layer of wood and glue with the next layer of wood/glue turned 90 degrees... glue, wood, glue, wood and so on used to form a laminate....
G10 is sort of like that, sheets of high tensile strength fiberglass and epoxy or phenolic resin are used to form a laminate then it's subjected to tremendous pressure and heated to form a board that is so strong that it can only be worked with by using special diamond or tungsten carbide tools.

Thin layers of G10, usually 1/8" - 1/4" thick are sometimes used on custom tactical knife handles to provide an almost indestructible yet attractive grip. With these slingshots you're looking at 3/4" to over an inch thick of G10... very expensive but worth it for the final product.
The black ballistic grade G10 has the addition of carbon and carbon fiber in the laminates, which increases strength by about 30%. Ballistic G10 costs more is also harder to work with.
Canvas Micarta is created the same as standard G10 but uses cotton canvas in place of fiberglass sheets. Layered effects can be created in Micarta and or G10 by using alternating colors for each layer.

The Ranger Tactical Practical Slingshot (TPS)

     Rangers lead the way!
Custom made from 3/4" thick high tech G10 composite, featuring Universal Forks, lanyard hole and simple yet effective gripping surfaces. The Ranger slingshot is tough, versatile and extremely accurate.
This design allows for shooting comfortably in either the side shooting style or in the upright hold. Because of the depth of the thumb indention and the width of the finger to thumb support being well thought out, tested and modified many times until it's just right... the slingshot although not being as bulky as many of it's larger counterparts intuitively centers and is able to shoot many types and varieties of ammo, while providing a firm and stable platform for extreme accuracy.

The G10 Pocket SEAL

So named to honor our good friends in the teams, this slingshot is one of the favorite designs of those who serve.
It fits a large variety of hands and is a little larger than the Ranger. It has a little more stability due to the wasp waist on the handle and greater weight overall.

The SEAL Sniper is a real custom at a production price. Perfectly sized to fit a wide variety of hands, it features a proper ellipse shaped pinky hole for a locked in grip and an assymetrical canted handle to relieve pressure on the wrist while aiming.

The G10 Pocket Hathcock

The most requested and favorite design, this slingshot is about 90% the size of the ballistic resin version so it fits even small hands and stability is increased with the wasp waist on the handle.

The Pocket Hathcock can be had in either a jade like green G10 or in the black ballistic grade.

The G10 BoyScout

This design is the one we gave to the BoyScouts so that they can get accustomed to aiming and shooting methods that will allow for carry over into other weapons.
Sized perfectly for the younger shooters, this is a favorite of many.

The BoyScout can be had in either a jade like green G10 or in the black ballistic grade.

The SideShooter Standard

Same size as the HDPE version but in your choice of Black ballistic rated G10, or Regular colored G10.
With it's super simple, "idiot proof" design that allows the bands to line up perfectly with or without gloves, and being the most pocketable of all the G10 slingshots... This slingshot in black G10 is the "go to" hunting slingshot for Bill and has brought home the game more often than any other design.

All the G10 slingshots come to you banded up ready to shoot, and include ammo. Check the pull down menu to choose your favorite.

G10 Slingshots

Each of these are made after being ordered and are NOT easy to make. It can take up to 3 weeks to get your's made depending on how many are ahead of you... but since they are some of the highest quality production slingshots ever made, they really are worth the wait.
Non USA orders usually ship without ammo due to weight and customs concerns.

Custom Slingshots

        Custom slingshots are priced according to the materials and the amount of time it takes to make them. In general terms it takes over twice as long and uses over twice the materials not counting exotics and the like. Because of that, and the fact some people do not follow through with their orders... the minimum price for any custom is $150 USD.
The more complex and time consuming customs will of course cost more.

        Occasionally we do have customs available that others have ordered and haven't followed through on their end of the obligation.... and other times we will sometimes retire an older slingshot that's in perfectly useable condition due to just trying out new but not necessarily better models. In these cases we will put them up for general sale... if you are interested in a custom, or one of our tried and true shot and loved retired models... you might like to contact us at and see what we have available. You will most likely get a better price and not have any wait.
Who knows... You might just get very lucky!

Everything you need to know to get you up and running with your new Pocket Predator!
Obligatory Warning:

Slingshots and slingshot shooting is dangerous. About the safest thing you can do with a slingshot is to leave it unbanded, store it in your closet, occasionally take it out to admire it and then put it back up.
However, if you do decide to actually use your slingshot then following these numbered rules will help to keep you safer, although there is nothing specified or implied that will guarantee you will be safe even if you do follow these rules...

Rule number one, make sure you're an adult or you are using the slingshot only under close adult supervision. All the same safety rules that are commonly associated with the use of a firearm are applicable.

Rule number two, ALWAYS check your band set, pouch and connections to make sure they are all in perfect working order. If there is even the smallest imperfection change out your band set to one that has no cuts, tears, holes or other problems. Then stress check your attachments to make sure there is no slippage or other undesired movement.

Rule number three, ALWAYS wear safety glasses. Slingshots use rubber and or natural latex compounds... Due to naturally occurring variances, there are NO guarantees either specified or implied about how long a band set will last before failure... no one can tell you how long a band set will last before it breaks... and they ALL fail at some point. SO always be safe, if you're going to shoot with a slingshot, wear safety glasses and always check your band sets and attachments before EVERY shot. If it is not perfect, put a new one on.

Rule number four, NEVER aim your slingshot at someone or something that you do not want killed or destroyed. Slingshots are capable of inflicting serious injury or even death with even the "lightest" of band and ammo setups. Treat slingshots the same way you would treat a loaded gun.

Rule number five, before EVERY shot make sure there is no damage to your slingshot itself. If there is any damage including but not limited to: cracks, dents, scrapes, breaks, or any other signs of damage, DO NOT use the slingshot without thorough testing being done by a competent professional first... and even after testing always use the slingshot in a cautious manner.

Rule number six, you are shooting at your own risk. We already recommended the safest course of action is to keep the slingshot on a shelf in your closet and to never use it... if you do decide to shoot even after we recommend differently... then refer to rules number 1 - 5 as reference for a possible safer way to accomplish that.
