    It is barely long enough to disembowel someone now.

    Not to mention, a butt stroke with that set up could be problematic.

    Wood and steel, baby!! A 10 pound wood and steel rifle is the way to go for bayonet fighting.
    RPD Thanks I agree with you sir not much choice with this set-up but better than nothing if I run out of ammo or jam big time!
    I think hell is coming to breakfast soon and getting every advantage I possibly can! This a back-up to a back-up anyway.
    I think you like M1A's and mine is right next to me now!

    I think not.
    I didn't mean buy cheap as in buy poor quality, I meant buy while prices are low. I assumed that most people with a certain degree of intelligence would've understood what I was saying but it looks like I assumed wrong. And don't call me son, I am not your son, thank God.

    No need to reply with any snarky comeback comments because I am out of this place for good after this and I won't be reading them.

    Dammit @Slippy , you done scared off another one.
    @GoodSam , he means well, but does like to take jabs now and then. Don't let his newbie initiation push you away.
    Your point is sound. Buy while the buying is good and prices are low.

    Touchy huh? Maybe we need a beginner's class where one can be coddled until they are groomed for the real world. It's ugly out there.

    Semi-auto is good has it's place. But don't forget the simple almost fault proof bolt action rifle. The basic shot guns. Both generally half the cost of most semi auto's and very effective. That 30-30 marlin at the local estate sale or gun show that is in good shape and selling at a low cost.

    We understand that. many read these threads that do not post. We must from time to time point things out for the benefit of all
