Chesty Understands

Kevin of The Smallest Minority has a post up where he expresses surprise that a bayonet is attached to a pistol.

It's a new CZ 75 SP-01 tactical.

I recall reading about Chesty Puller. It was in the middle of WW2 & some big hats were anxious to show him this new model of flamethrower they had developed. They figured with his approval it'd sail through the proper channels & be adopted. Chesty looked it over after the demonstration & simply said "Where do you put the bayonet?"

So Chesty, wherever he is, is likely smiling at the notion. & I wouldn't be too suprised if ol' Stonewall was smiling with him as they spoke of the bayonet.
