I can see times were a bayonet could come in handy. Some manufacturers do offer them as accessories.

I'd hate to miss when re-holstering

I think I can see a use for a pistol bayonet. I just couldn't imagine a holster that would work, and I wouldn't be taking the time to fix bayonets in a SD situation.

Chainsaw bayonet? I would get that in a heartbeat.

But the chainsaw grip for a shotgun...

Read up on Operation Paul Bunyan, that would have been useful for that mission.

But yeah it definitely should be in the running for most useless.

So the hottest gun on the market is the S&W Shield you say...what about the original Shield-gun.

7 round mag in a Glock is about as stupid as it gets.

Sorry, but I have to say the Slide Fire stock...I see so many of them for sale second hand.

If I were a rich man, I would buy a few dozen and rent them out at local gun ranges. Let people get their jollies for $50 a pop. And you know I'd get it too...

That's really not a bad idea at all...

Cleaning rods are still issued with firearms today. Its not just for ramming a bullet onto black powder

Early ww1 there was a lack of blade makers to keep up with need so the rod bayonet was born. It wasnt ideal but it met the criteria of a pointed object to stick in the enemy when they got in your trenches.
I'm pretty confident saying that the Arisaka anti-aircraft sight never was the root cause of successfully taking out a plane if they were ever actually used. They're right up there with the dustcovers...

A Trapdoor had to look like what came before or it wasn't a proper gun -- needed a rod of some kind under the barrel and the action had to mimic a caplock. The silly rod bayonet in the (breechloading) Trapdoor replaced the cleaning-rod-only long before WWI (and even The SPanish-American War for that matter) and they never found their way back here. Not into the Krag, the 1903, the Model 1917, Garand, M-14, M-16... I know cleaning rods exist(ed).
