Question:

Are you allowed to play Apple Blasters at a theme park. Basically, you buy a bucket of apples and shoot them through cannons at targets! Can you hit the bulls-eye? Is this permitted?

Answer:

Jews are not allowed to waste food. While it is permitted to throw food that will not get ruined, if the apples will get ruined by shooting them it is considered baal tashchis.

Best wishes
