    An easy sentence for you!

    Hey,
    I bet that's very easy for you, but I must honestly say, I don't know which version is correct.

    Tom can shoot through walls with his new pistol.
    Tom can shoot with his new pistol through walls.


    I mean, pistol and the walls are objects, aren't they?

    Theoretically it is the same as this:
    I go to the park with Veronica.
    I go with Veronica to the park


    I think this topic belongs to 5th class in school

    P.S. My guess: Sentence 1 (for both examples).

    Cheers!

    They are all grammatically correct, although I would rephrase the second one as follows:
    With his new pistol Tom can shoot through walls.

    Of course, this will depend on just what kind of walls you are talking about!
