Would this stop terrorists from using our weapons. Hey I think they should dip our bullets in bacon fat to make them go faster but what do I know.

After the initial news report, the Muslim Public Affairs Council called on Defense Secretary Robert Gates to withdraw from combat use weapons that have sights with the biblical references.


Remember-we don't want to offend any one!

The manufacturer should have used 2COR4:6 or JN8:12 as the model numbers. Problem solved.

Come on guys.....

You know for damn sure that these guys planting booby-traps along side roads aren't scribbling any Allah messages on them! They've all been sternly counseled by the MWJKTAAHWC(Muslim We're Just Kidding This A'int A Holy War Council). I can't believe they would violate their own foundations while whacking our Men and Women.

Botton Line....One Shot,One Kill.....Always....Goal #1.....Take a G.I. to the range and make sure He/She is qualified toward this goal. It may save their Life. You may be surprised at some of the poor Marksmanship Skills Military Folks are forced to release our people with. That's why the CMP(Civilian Marksmanship Program) was formed so many years ago.

Trijicon made a mistake on this one. I too love the company and their optics, but they screwed the pooch on this one and have no one to blame by themselves. If they didn't get explicit okay on these sorts of inscriptions as part of the contract then they are at fault here and should have known better. I find it very difficult to believe that the military signed off on this as part of the procurement given the sensitivities around religious pressure within the military, the logistical problems of maintaining and distributing marked and unmarked equipment on soldier request, and the broader "crusade" accusations that get thrown around.

That said, I hope the response to this from the military isn't over the top. First, the claim that these inscriptions put a "crusade" type spin on the whole war effort is complete BS. If the inscriptions said "Death to Allah" or referenced something of that sort then maybe that complaint would have merit, but that isn't the case here. There are two complaints that have merit I think. First, I think that soldiers that do not wish to have the inscriptions on their equipment should be allowed to swap it in for un-marked versions, at Trijicon's expense. Second, if the military knew of these markings and did nothing to rectify the problem until it made news, there is a valid "promotion of religion" issue to be dealt with through the command structure through normal disciplinary means.

I can understand the intent of the company, as well as the desire by many soldiers to have an optic with this kind of inscription, but supplying these on a government contract was a poor decision by Trijicon and they need to own up and make it right. If the military knew of this and contracted for them anyway, Trijicon is off the hook and the procurement and command structure of the military needs to disciple those responsible.

Lastly, why wouldn't Trijicon offer this as an option on their civilian and direct sale LE models? Seems to me there would be a sizable market for this, or at the very least would work well as an online or retailer special order option.

I can only imagine the delivered units were indeed inspected,reviewed,tested,x-rayed and looked at by "Gunny" himself.

our money says " In God We Trust" on it.

our money bought them.... I say screw those muslims that dont like it.

if thier our soldiers then maybe they should resign and move the hell out of the US and go join thier buddies on the other side of the scope.

the powers that be couldnt have let a thing like this get past unless they wanted it to.


just my opinion tho..... ;)
