    "The psychological reaction of any man, when he first takes the smatchet in his hand is full justification for its recommendation as a fighting weapon. He will immediately register all the essential qualities of good soldier - confidence, determination, and aggressiveness. Its balance, weight and killing power, with the point, edge or pommel, combined with the extremely simple training necessary to become efficient in its use, make it the ideal personal weapon for all those not armed with a rifle and bayonet"

    My wife got me this "Encyclopedia of 20th Century Weapons" for Christmas. And I'm not sure why, but I have this weird feeling that I need to go buy one of these.[​IMG]

    I like the part about the "extremely simple training required". Plus I generally don't have a rifle with/bayonet on my person. It looks like I could that around in my britches. Kind of like a CCW without all the hassle.

    As far as your truck goes - Just don't buy the cheap beer, and we'll be fine.
