The Perfect Shot Operating Instructions

 

The Perfect Shot is sanitized and checked for leaks at the factory. There may be some water still present in the tank, this is normal. Use only 80 proof (40% by volume) alcohol to ensure continued sanitization. Never fill with a pre-mixed drink (screw-driver for example).

20160529_113504Do Not place The Perfect Shot in direct sunlight. If accidently Filled with something that will eventually mold or mildew your warranty is void and you must discard The Perfect Shot immediately.

The Perfect Shot does not claim to keep you from drinking too much. Never use The Perfect Shot as your guide for drinking alcohol. The Perfect Shot should only be used as a tool to help you dispense, secure and regulate your alcohol.

Do not tip The Perfect Shot or transport with alcohol in the tank. The Perfect Shot has compressed sponges inside to absorb any minor drips from its internal pin-hole venting system.

The Perfect Shot programming is simple. When the display is blinking a value, use the up or down arrows to change the display to the value of your choice, then hit PROG/ENTER to select it.
