Is playing with a water gun for fun allowed or is it a problem of baal tashchis (wasting resources)? (assuming for adult playing with kids or with other adults)

This is really a general question of where do you draw the line between recreation and baal tashchit.

  • right good point. where do you draw the line though? – ray Aug 11 '13 at 17:07
  • Especially in Israel. – Double AA Aug 11 '13 at 19:38
  • @ray so essentially that's your question. If I were you I would change it (but that's why I'm not you:)) – Hacham Gabriel Aug 11 '13 at 21:37

    I think the issue of baal tashchis is completely relative... I could be wrong though. That's just how I remember it. – rosenjcb Aug 13 '13 at 4:30
