arma virumque cano (et alia)
I wonder what the part is that is before it and not zoomed in on. To me it looks no more threatening than any other part number.
No big deal. I love the term by the way. If my wife hadn't put a moratorium on me buying domains, I would buy jesusscopes.com and point it to Trijicon.
The original story made it sound like full-length verses were inscribed on the scopes.This?Meh, no big deal.Those who would recognize the codes probably wouldn't be offended by them and those who didn't recognize the codes couldn't be offended by them.
kaveman said, "Those who would recognize the codes probably wouldn't be offended by them and those who didn't recognize the codes couldn't be offended by them."I agree with that. The problem is it's now become a public issue and we can no longer avoid it.
"I agree with that. The problem is it's now become a public issue and we can no longer avoid it."Are you saying we should be blaming the idiots who are making a big deal about it?
"Are you saying we should be blaming the idiots who are making a big deal about it?"Oh, yes, certainly. A DoD contractor violates the spirit (and perhaps the letter) of the law and we should blame those who brought it to the attention of the public. It's interesting that the manufacturer of the scopes says that:1.) We been doin' it, forevah--and there ain't nothin' wrong with it.and2.) We did it all kinda semi-secrety like.I have a sneaking suspicion that this situation was an open secret, long before the current complaint surfaced. Now the military will have to take a stance as to whether this sort of behavior is appropriate or even in violation of their procurment policies.
You do realize the military tests the shit out of these things before issuing them (or even awarding a contract)If the military didn't notice this and /or didn't bother to raise a complaint about it that is in no way Trijicon's fault.I suspect folks Like Democommie would be raising hell if the crosshairs on the sights looked like the cross, just so they could have something useless to bitch about.
mike w.:Since you are undoubtedly a mind reader guess what I'm thinking after reading this story:http://www.cnn.com/2010/US/01/21/rifles.bibles/?hpt=T2Obviously General Petraeus didn't get your e-mail.
And you think that article invalidates my position how?Nice try, but you fall short as usual.
As democommie has informed us, this big "problem" has now been solved, and no one even had to go to prison for it. Wish they were all this easy.
By the way, no discussion on this topic would be complete without The Onion's take. Those kill me sometimes.
mikey:Golly gee, even when you're wrong, you're right. You say things that turn out to, well, not correct and yet you can't just man up and admit it. And you really wonder why any sort of discussion on the subject of you and your obsession with gunz is doomed from the start?
Nothing in your article invalidates anything I've said in this thread.You have a SERIOUS reading comprehension problem Democommie.
No, mikey. It's you with the problem; the problem is that you're dishonest and a crybaby.Your comment at 8:09 PM on January 21st makes it quite clear that you thought Trijichristian had done nothing wrong. Their subsequent actions gives the lie to that statement. But as I've said elsewhere, for a man you don't man up much when you're in error.
