I LOVE it!
Trijicon makes good stuff but I can’t imagine why they would jeopardize what has to be a lucrative contract that way. The world is the way it is not the way we wish it to be. I’m not a fan of mixing Jesus and killing anyway. It’s like the Teutonic knights of the middle ages singing “Christ is Risen” while butchering pagan Lithuanians at the battle of Grunwald (they lost).
So what if there is an innocuous stamp with a reference to the Bible on their product. It does not seem to stop the optics from functioning properly.
With or without an inscription Trijicon makes some damned fine optics. Personally, I like the idea of an appropriate inscription. I’ll have to check my Aimpoint to see if anything’s there or not.
Everyone has a complaint. Even if it is ill founded.
Before the athiests complain they should try out the goods, pick them us, use them ... and then have an involvement.
Athiests? $! Need to get a grip on life.
Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition!
If the Marines aren’t objecting, then the atheists need to shut the heck up.
Oh my gosh! Please tell me there are no “cross” hairs on the scopes also. I am now calling up all schematics for every piece of equipement used by the military, including port-a-potties, to make sure there are no crosses of any kind whatsoever incorporated into the design and construction of said equipment even though removing them will weaken the integrity of said equipment. I see a crosses in the shape of airplanes. I will also make sure runways, roadways, etc, military, foreign, federal and state, will not contain an offensive cross-representing structure known as intersections, especially those Celtic-cross-looking traffic circles. Damn those telephone poles! Now removing 100-year-old oak tree with naturally-growing, offensive, cross-forming branches.
Non Developmental Item- Commercial Off the Shelf
Searching around on the internet, it looks like the Trijicon contract is for an NDI product. If the government buyer did not specify it in the contract, and failed to spot it, too bad.
It’s Off the Shelf just like you’d buy at any gun store.
Brian Ross acted as if he had just discovered a fraudulent birth certificate or something.
His reaction to this “ scandal “ was akin to Abu Ghraib.
He was apoplectic that some Afghan solders may have been trained on weapons with these sights.
He also had a video of Bibles (allegedly ) in Arabic
being unboxed in Afghanistan and he accused US soldiers and chaplains of proselytizing.
The inscription is tiny , you really have to look for it and it’s been a long standing practice of Trijicon .
The Marines and Special Ops prefer the sights, the company just got a big defense contract and Ross definitely wanted that contract
voided because of Muslim sensitivities.
What I’m seeing out there in the Internet Gun Forum Pooled Ignorance System, and on the gun bloggers, is that most people think it’s cool, it’s funny, and even the hard core atheists wouldn’t let it keep them from buying Trijicon.
