Heck, back in the day I had an uncle that used a BB gun to discipline his dogs and his kids, I remember he always kept it ready on the porch and would pepper the tail end of the dog when it wouldn't quit barking. He would also fire it at the kids when they were fighting or weren't paying attention, most of the time he would miss, but ting the BB off something close enough to get their attention, a couple times he didn't miss... Of course, that was back in the good ole days in rural West Virginia, now days shooting either your dog or your kid would likely land you in jail.

I went through ROTC at a time when all of our cadre NCOs were Viet Nam vets struggling to impart their wisdom on a bunch of know-nothing cadets.
MSG Anderson happily imparted upon us the concept of the 3-5 second rush with the assistance of a Red-Ryder carbine. It worked, and a few years later I was absolutely honored to receive my first salute from that man :-)
