To anyone in or nearby the Seattle area, stop by my place I’m handing out bayonets for the next half hour.
@ProfWorr What kind?
My dad and I have a … well, genuinely massive collection of authentic bayonets dating back to the very first ones to the latest modern ones. Even some obscure prototypes, experimentals and at least a handful of “ersatz” ones.
You lucky, mine are nerf
My Dad was a marine, and we found an old bayonet. It was cool, but the side edge was dull. Me and my brother (like, 12 years old) sharpened it. Then found out that it was against USMC orders to do that, which is why it had that dull edge. Oddly, my Dad didn't make us grind it back down to dull USMC spec.
Hmmm, I'd guess you haven't had many Marines in your life. Typically, once you know what the Corps has decided, your immediate next step is to get busy complying. I'd say my Dad was mellowing out, but that isn't how Marines are put together, even after they return to civilian lives.
@ProfWorr I live in Ohio. Time to grab the popcorn!
