    I don't think they will fly straight, but have a try!
     
  4. Take some washers and see what they make, they are as coins?

    I remember trying that as a kid and I recall that the coin flew erratically and smacked my hand on the way through the forks...if I remember right, my father also was not at all pleased with me shooting coins. I believe he hit a lot more than my hand!! Over all, not a happy experience for me!

    I tried it and to be honest they fly pretty good and have nice sound when they fly :)

    I glued 7 pennies together. Still waiting for the glue to dry, I think I should have gone with superglue instead of craft glue. 20 grams/.7 ounces. Will hopefully get to shoot it early this week.

  16. Studer1972 do you have too much money?

    Then send it to me!

    Papermoney is the best to send per post!

    This is an interesting experiment, but following my first experience using coins as ammo, I think I will stick to the more traditional route!

    supper glue would have been better. it would have dried faster. but most likely not not as strong

    if you have a high speed camera it braking apart would have been a cool video clip.

    I think shooting washers(with sharpened edges) could work great and make some serious impacts with this kind of pouch...
