So there's this guy who sets up at our local gun shows. He always has cool militaria. The good stuff is spread on the table: Long Garand bayonets, a Patton sword, US & German WWII flotsam and jetsam. That's not why I patronize his table, though. I'm there for the three 5-gallon buckets of old bayonets he keeps behind his table, all fairly reasonably priced. Every show, no matter how odd the gun I'd just acquired and needed a toadsticker for, he'd always come through for me:
"Got a reasonably priced WWI German Gewehr 98 bayonet?"
"Arisaka bayonet. WWII vintage. Got one?"
"Do you have a cheap Garand bayonet I can use to cover up the lug until I can afford a good one?"
"How're you fixed for Argentine Mauser bayonets?"
"Bayonet. Azerbaijani M1887 Mauser. How much?"
Okay, I just made that last one up. Still, he was batting 1.000 until this most recent show when I asked "Do you have any bayonets for a Brazilian 1908/34 Mauser?"
*Rummage* *Rummage* *Dig*
"Nope. Not here; I'll bring one next show."
I was floored. Anyhow, I did some digging around on the intarw3bz to get an idea of what I'd be looking at, price-wise. (Don't worry, I'm not going to cheat on him. He said he'd bring one; I'll buy it from him.) While surfing, I came to the site that is the point of this post. ("Point". Ha, ha. Get it? I kill me...)
"ebayonet". That is just too clever for words. Wish I'd thought of it...
