Default Re: What use is a bayonet?

ABOVE and beyond all of what has been posted, it has psychological value far beyond its reach or value just by being there.
At some point in their lives, EVERYBODY has been CUT,
not everybody has been shot.
They do NOT want to get cut again.

Call me Bayonet Guy.

When confronted with 6 unarmed crazies one will be crazy enough to charge you even if you're armed, once they've worked themselves up. Odds are one will reach you.

With your friend Mr. Bayonet (especially a long spiky one) it is possible to put said crazies to flight with a few aggressive stabs below the waist (thigh, crotch, belly button).

As they flee give one a round in the dooky hole.

I make a point of carrying a rifle in my trunk. What if the shtf while you're at Homedepot and you have to drive 20 miles home through GKW? What if they are stopping vehicles and impounding weapons?

I don't want them taking one of my first line rifles, and I wouldn't leave one in my trunk - so this trunk gun is a cheap military bolt with a bayonet. If the 20 rounds I stow with it go bad I still have the pigsticker.

IF you swap out the Bayonet for a good up close and personal knife there are lots of reasons and uses.
Most of the bayonets I have ever handled or used just didn't have the blade quality for what I considered my missions to be. The grind was wrong, the steel wasn't up to par and the balance sucked.

Yeah, you could stick someone with one but not as effectively or efficiently as some other choices.

But in a balls to the wall hand to hand live or die I would find a way to stick and kill you with a rat or a sand bag.
