No. My aim is too good, and my arm too strong.
I once knew someone I thought deserved a good slap (or worse) across the face. Sometimes just imagining it brought some satisfaction.

Yes. Multiple times. My fuse is long, very long and prone to fizzle out before detonating, but when that temper DOES go off . . . . it is explosive. Most people I know have never seen it and would tell you I don’t have a temper, but those who have seen it know to duck for cover!

Funny you should ask. I swear, I was thinking about this incident just yesterday. It happened some 40 years ago, approximately.
To set the scene -
I had come home from the grocery store. My (first) husband was sitting at the dining room table. Across from him, I had bags of groceries on the table and I was standing there, pulling out the items to put them away.
It was the short side of the table, so he wasn't far from me at all. He made some cruel remark (which I don't recall) that just caught me horribly wrong.
I had cans of food in my hand and started hurling them at his head. I don't think I set out to do that, btw. I don't know how it advanced beyond that, as all I remember was that I began hurling the cans at him and the next thing I knew I 'came to' on the floor.
First - he did NOT hit me or hurt me in any physical way. I was on the floor, on my back. He was straddling me, holding down my arms. I guess I fully blacked out or something.
I'm not a physically violent person and never have been. I do have PTSD so some kind of rage thing took hold and I guess I responded accordingly in that moment.
Fortunately, he was not hurt. I don't recall specifically, but I don't think any of the cans actually hit him so, in retrospect, I'm glad for that.
That's the only time I ever got fully violent.
