    Interesting, if true. Never heard of it before, and haven't handled an ACOG, either.

    I have handled hundreds of ACOG's, and never even noticed. I guess that in this respect, ignorance really is bliss.

    As a point of defense to the maker, it is claimed that the founder of the company was a devout Christian who died in a plane crash, and keeping his memory alive in this manner is not only respectful, but also heart warming. I see no problem with such an endeavor personally. Wow, did I actually just say that?

    Quick, Broker has been abducted, and replaced with an brain altered sim. Find him and save him. [fnny] Or, he is just in a good mood this morning. In that case, Relax.

    One of mine does, other two nothing. TA11-E MT5:15

    Mathew 5:15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

    Heard yesterday that trijicon said they will take the biblical references off the acogs even though they have been putting them on since their inception.

    I know with the economy we're in now they have to do whatever's necessary to keep business, just hate to see a vocal minority assert their will again.

    Well to be fair, if some other company like Nike decided to start quoting Anton LaVey and including them etched on the sides of shoes...I bet we would have the Christian Coalition marching Washington. :)

    But It does make me a little upset to see some fool protesting this Acog quote thing. There are much more important issues to protest. Trying to get rid of the 700 Club would be an excellent start.

    You're probably right.

    I guess I just favor a free market place where companies have the freedom to market products their customers want and we the consumers decide whether they succeed, not some group of whiners out to make the world more PC.

    You don't like the companies politics, religious views, what they have written on the side of their merchandise, FINE don't buy it. It's the people that are constantly whining because either they or someone else may be offended by a product they probably don't even use that really tick me off. Can you tell I don't like whiners.

    Can't wait to see the whining from CAIR and the ACLU about these guys if they ever get any publicity

    I agree, if you don't want it, don't buy it. [winkthumb] That said, dot gov wanted the ACOGs and have procurement rules you have to follow if you want to sell. Nobody thought to include a "no biblical references on your products" when they issued the PO for sights. Betcha they will henceforth. And if they do, it's one more rule the suppliers will have to follow if they want to sell. Said another way, if you want to sell it, make it the way I want it.

    PC=PIA in general. (But you knew that.)

    Does this mean if you have an ACOG with said referenced bible verse, that it is a pre-ban and now worth more? [OO]

    Just dip all your ammo in pig's and be done with it! Who bloody cares what shoots you? Dead is dead. Complain about being shot? Stop firing! Don't like that our God might be watching us? STOP HIDING IN A HOUSE OF WORSHIP AND FIRING AT US!
    I don't bloody CARE if you are offended by my God! Your's pisses me off! Are you going to tell me you have no god on your side? Or has Allah Walked out on this war?
    Let's try this....Texas is being overrun with wild boar. They are begging hunters to come and help kill pigs. Let's capture most of the pigs, and paint a red line around the whole dang region with the pig's blood. With pig heads on stakes at the borders!
    I'm sick of this crap, and I couldn't care LESS about their bloody feelings. <end rant>
