Nice try.
No doubt somewhere there's a scene in a movie where a lighter is indeed lit from a speeding bullet - from 300 yards.

What would happen if the choke is smaller than the diameter of the coins?

Have you ever loaded any fletchette darts in a 12GA round and fired them for effect? Pretty cool to see what they do to a man sized target.

Not sure if you can have them in your country?

You can Google them, correct spelling is flechette dart.

They're best used as an anti personel weapon in a human wave attack, they get fired out of a howitzer at the enemy. They look like a small nail with fins on the rear to help them fly through the air.

It's not surprising that the thinner doors can be breached with an air gun.
Even the ones that didn't go completely through the doors would be dangerous enough.
I've managed to put holes in all kinds of things around here with pellet guns.
None as powerful as yours.
Anyone who thinks of airguns as mere toys is greatly mistaken.
Thanks for the demonstration.

You would have an easier time shooting through our doors.
Most of the doors in our house are hollow, even a couple of the ones to the outside.
Wonder whose great idea that was.
Makes it easier for little old ladies to open and close?

Great video, I was laughing with you!

I think it might've worked better if you cut the fins down so that the dart could be stuffed into the shotgun shell.

You have many fun toys.
The sound in my computer isn't too good, so I clicked on the closed caption button on this video.
And it was in Greek!
No fair.
Thanks for the night vision review, though.
Very cool.
