If you can drive the bayonet deeply into soft ground, you'll be fine. One of my bayonets is living proof that they bend when you try to pitch a dogtent this way. Anyone who's seen me fix bayonets on my Springfield has seen that wicked home-made scimitar of mine. (Or is it a Tulwar? Robert E Howard used that word a lot, and I just wanted to use it once in my life.)
