Bayonets

My dad told me a story the other day of when he was hunting with an SKS that had a bayonet on it. He shot a deer an wounded it bad enough where it couldn't move, but it wasn't dead. So he desided to stab it with the bayonet. He said it was harder than he expected, but it worked. So I was wondering if any body that was in the service ever used a bayonet for anything?

I figured

I figured that. The only thing I had ever heard of them being used for was digging.

Hadn't thought

Hadn't thought about that. Guess that would work. That's the best use for it I have seen yet.
