That is an old western trick from back in the day, it can be done, and people still do it to this day.
In the old days, the bullet would not pass through the coin, the ammo was not that powerful, but with todays ammo a .357 or larger will easly penetrate a coin, If you are talking about rifles, a 22 won't do the job, maybe a 17 hmr not sure, I think I will see for myself, and get back to you on that one, any other rifle cal should have no problems
Most people think of a quarter when shooting coins, in the old days the trick was performed with a silver dollar much, much larger, just the same I personaly have seen exebition shooters shoot a 325mg asprin out of the air with a pistol, as for me I would be happy to hit a dinner plate with a pistol!!! now with a persision rifle I shoot dimes at a hundred yards consistantly and two hundred yards with in two or three shots
If you run your just going to die tired!!!
