For military purposes- Winchester 97 Trench Gun, with 16 inch bayonet. Few things can say STOP RIGHT THERE quite as loudly.

Whoa I would be concerned about the shot hitting the tip the knife.

If i were hog hunting with my Mossberg, i would be glad to have a bayonet for company. It might also be nice for those people in Alaska who carry shotguns for bears; who hasn't wanted to "poke the bear".

In close combat I could see it stopping someone from grabbing the end of your barrel. Who wants to grab a sharp bayonet by the blade?

They're just cool. And intimidating, yes. Research shows more intimidating than a gun -- people have a subliminal fear of being poked and cut. Shot is psychologically more an "either it's gonna happen or not" thing.

Anyone's take?
well when you dress up in camo and blouse your pants and hang at the range shooting buckshot at 25 yd sillouets you look cool. and if the zombies or apocalypse comes your ready if you have a rail a good 10,000 candle power light,a laser mounted and a good high point pistol on your side

Subliminal my azz...it's 100% liminal. I don't want anybody shoving 12" of steel in any part of me. Emphasis added to stay out of the Freudian thread...
