A very good question. I'd be all for it...then, I would use the long gun that it was attached to....to blast the scumbag off the end of my blade.

I need one of those bayonets for my Glock. Then I could attach my C4 LED to the bottom of it as well and be totally ready for anything...

Seems like a shorter pump action shotgun without a stock and with a regular sized bayonet wouldn't be too unwieldy indoors, assuming you live in a state where you can have a pistol grip.

I don't think that long rifles or full sized (Rem 870 type) shotguns are practical for home defense and adding a bayonet just makes it that much more impractical. Besides the issue of round penetration (if you miss) there's the problem of clearing doorways and rounding corners with the barrel of the weapon. I was always trained to keep the weapon close in when breaching an entry to avoid the possibility of the invader grabbing and controlling your weapon. A 13in LOP stock attached to an action and barrel that is considerably longer would seem to make for a difficult tool to use in a home defense situation.
Just my thoughts. Maybe now the reminder that I should post more often will get off of my screen.

I think a claw or ball peen hammer would be even better.

Being confronted by a blade was a lot more shocking to me than a rifle. My father, in all of his paternal need to protect the family, has pulled both on me. The blade was a katana. The gleam of light on the steel definitely jarred me more than staring down the muzzle of his rifle. Of course, he was ass naked when he had the katana, so that may have played a role.
