RNDRSAFE I agree, that we are veering off topic. We can save this discussion for another time..




On Topic, yes I do agree bayonets have their place in combat, just not all places in combat.

Actually what I said part of US military bayonet training, (at least it was when I was in).

You practice hittng a rubber dummy.

As you do they ask you the question: WHAT IS THE BAYONET MADE OF!?

You answer: COLD STEEL!!

They ask you again: WHAT ARE THE TWO KINDS OF BAYONET FIGHTERS!?

You anwer: THE QUICK AND THE DEAD!!!

i heard that there was a bayonet charge in iraq, apparently the iraqi army(on our side) charged and killed the enemy. they wiped them out, bayonet fighting is still, i think a good way to fight!

The US Army does VERY LITTLE training with the bayonet. I served with the infanry for 4 years and did not train on the bayonet outside of crowd control training for Kosovo.

The British were reported to have "fixed bayonets" in May, down in Basra, http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/mid...st/3723731.stm and there were reports of a number of enemy casualties showing up in hospitals with stab wounds.

The use of bayonets in the Falklands conflict was also well documented, including the storming of Mount Longdon, where the fighting was hand to hand and in the dark: a classic "bayonet charge". It's worth pointing out, though, that the British at that time used self loading rifles, rather than the assault-type weapon they have now.

It's interesting that in both cases, use of the bayonet attracted some pretty negative coverage: as if it is somehow culpable to stab someone, rather than shoot them.

My view on bayonets is that every home should have one.

Will a Imperial (US made) M-7S do the work?

It will! Especially if the M1 comes with it. I'd love to own one of those.
