    And lefties wonder why the MSM is losing credibility? There are SERIOUS issues that affect our country, but a 28 year old "issue" is suddenly worth reporting on?

    Oye.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Because they're gunsights, not fatigue-critical or life-limited airframe parts. Inspectors are going to check fit, form, and function, and the addition of some random stamped letters in an inconspicuous spot is probably not going to raise any flags.

    That being said, it shouldn't have been done.

    Oy vey, as the Chosen say...

    Look... when you're in the ****, you want the best weapons, sights, etc you can get, regardless of who makes them.

    There is a company called Kahr Arms...it is owned by Justin Moon, who is the son or grandson of Sum Yung Moon, founder of the Unification Church or Moonies. Supposedly at one time, the UC owned some of the stock in Kahr Arms.

    It is my opinion that Sum Yung Moon is a huge fraud, and that he is taking advantage of gullible people for his own benefit and so forth. To say I have a very low opinion of SY Moon and his "church" would be putting it mildly.

    I own a Kahr .40 Compact, had it for most of a decade. It is one of my favorite carry guns, because it is a quality firearm: accurate, reliable, plenty of firepower but readily concealeable, with a number of features I consider important in a CCW.

    Yeah, it chaps my assets a bit that some of the money I paid for that pistol probably found its way into the coffers of the Unification Church. BUT, that wasn't as important to me as having a firearm I could depend on to fulfill certain criteria that might save my life or someone else's life one day. Who made it, what their religion was, and so on was a trivial concern by comparison.

    The soldiers in the field, whether they are Christian, Jewish, Islamic, Pagan or Atheist, are probably FAR more concerned about whether their Trijicon sights will help them put rounds into the enemy than whether Trijicon inscribed JON3:16 on the sight.


    This issue is trivial.

    Yes, the issue is trivial in that I'd not recommend replacing or rejecting these sites because of this extra lettering.

    I would see that future contracts be a little tighter about the product being bought to stop this. I mean, you know someone is being paid to stamp the letters on, and that's coming from the taxpayer.

    Outside of the Hello Kitty M-16 I'm not a big fan of cutesy in weapons.

    The only reason this was made a issue was because of some non religous group. It goes back to being Politically Correct because it might offend people.

    A propaganda weapon? Is it as powerful as Gitmo and Abu Graib?

    Actually, our weapons should be inscribed with the image of Odin, God of War.

    $660M for up to 80K gun sights. Hmm, that's $8,250.00 each.

    Would you pay that for one of these?



    They can likely make them for less than $1K a piece. After PAU16:21 they should stamp: RIP0:FF

    Hey, ya gotta make a profit & I assume they were the best choice mechanically.....
    All the GUBMINT needs to do is put 'no religious symbols or text' in the specs & that will be the end of it.....
    They paint messages on bombs & such all the time...
    Personally, I like it a lot.....

    It's a friggin' gun sight, not a prosyletizing campaign button. The government should stop accepting shipments that have this grafitti on them. It shouldn't do anything else, since the sights apparently work to spec, but the bad habit should stop.

    So long as the damn pacifist liberals don't start claiming the cross hairs are a religious statement.
    The customer--American soldiers--asked for reliable equipment. If that's what they're getting, then it doesn't make a hill-a-beans what's stamped on it.
