(TFT) Re: Storing of pole weapons

The only storing of pole weapons that I have read about (and that doesn't
mean there are more) happened during the American Revolution, where early on
in the war some riflemen were supplied collapsible pikes that had a sling to
carry it with.  The reason they were supplied these was because the rifle
was not a military weapon and could not attach a bayonet.  Using this
collapsible short pike, the rifleman now had a HtH weapon he could use in
HtH combat or sling outside of that type of combat. (from the Book of the
Continental Soldier).

Yours in Cidri,
