    Why a little practice could help in a survival situation.

    When I was a child, I remember reading about settlers in the Tennessee area would "snuff" candles at night with their rifles as practice. They would trim the wicks on a burning candle with a rifle ball to make them burn brighter put candles out with a rifle ball, but my favorite was "barking" squirrels to save lead. They would shoot the limb beneath a squirrel and the fragmented bark would kill the rodent then they would recover the slug to remold into another ball. I'm calling BS, after having beaten way too many squirrels to death with my gun butt after knocking them out of a tree top with bird shot. Tough little bastards and tree bark just ain't gonna kill em.
