from upper management when I suggested we needed bayonets for the M4s for Nuclear security force. Not to stick Tango's but to provide a PERCEPTION that we would stick tango's and protestors if need be. there is a psychology of the bayonet, and it's use in hand to hand combat. the Marines still teach it's use I think. I would prefer and M1 Garand to bayonet fight with instead of an M16, but the concept is still there. Needless to say, it did not get approval.
Neither did my plan for a shot up burned out car for the entrance way road as a perception warning for all the sites.
Great adaptation. May be a little long for the rifle, but probably effective.
