Believe it or not, the likelihood of you getting in trouble for shooting a penny is next to none.

Based on this you can get in trouble for using a penny to scratch a lottery ticket..

I often see pennies nailed to roads by city workers as surveying marks. Never heard of trouble over that. Hey, someone has to use them up, what else are they good for?

They're great to put on railroad tracks (or so I've heard :lol: )
Any of you guys went to the US and see those machines that you put a penny and 4 quarters in a machine that squishes the penny and prints something on it, I have a few of them.

When I was a kid, that was one of our favorite things; putting pennies on the railway tracks and they would squash out to about the size of a quarter, if memory serves me right...very thin of course.
note: no TV or computers then - just simple pleasures in those days :]

Also, at Blackpool England, you can put one of those big pennies into a machine they have at the Blackpool Tower - it comes out of the machine squashed in an oval shape, with the tower printed on one side and some printing on the other side.

A prairie cousin introduced us to squashing pennies on a railway track at a family reunion, by Kalamalka Lake in the early 1970's. We hid in the trees, and I remember being quite scared that the row of pennies might derail the train. My cousin wanted to put rocks on there as well, but I insisted not. I was imagining the trouble we'd be in if we wiped out the whole campground with a crashed train. Probably not though, eh? Those copper pennies sure squashed out flat! I doubt one would shatter like the above-pictured copper-plated zinc piece of junk.

I used gum to hold them still on the tracks, I was PISSED when I would put some of my pennies there only to see them fall off when the train was too close for me to go put them back. Good times.

Funnily enough, today I was cleaning up after the 2 year old and picked up a magnet and some of her "monies". Pennies from 2008 and newer were magnetic! They must have changed over to something cheaper than zinc.
