    It could very well be. That would also be pretty funny. It probably isn't, though. If so, that's a pretty big coincidence. To be honest, there's also a bit of irony in the PC crowd getting offended by this. A lot of people in the PC crowd are anti-war and to think that they are getting offended over a couple of etched letters and numbers on a weapon to be used in a war that they most likely won't agree with is a bit silly.

    .
    Well over a 600 million dollar contract it could add up to a chunk of change in the 100's of thousands possibly a million or so bucks.

    I think you are grossly over-estimating the cost of adding a couple of numbers and letters to a serial number. If these codes weren't there, they would probably be replaced by normal serial numbers.

    I'm not the least bit surprised in the PC crowd's reaction.

    Doesn't matter as long as it meets spec's at the right price....
    A painfully weak arguement......

    The PC crowd is able to get offended at anything the leaders pretend to be offended at.

    I have an idea! All the PC'ers that are hacked off over this, should show their outrage by not buying Trijicon rifle scopes.

    Jesus codes?

    Another excellent example of quality journalism.

    I have an idea too. Let's change all the inscriptions to Islamic verses praising Allah. And let you pay for it.

    How's that work for ya?

    Remember this is your tax money being spent for something you may or may not support. Do you like it when some welfare queen spends your tax money on an abortion? How about an illegal immigrant using your taxes for free medical care? You cool with that?

    See the big picture here? You're dismissing the complaints of other based on some anti-pc nonsense. This isn't about Christianity or pc language. It's about our tax money going to a defense contractor who just happens to be stamping Christian messages on a gun sight.

    It's not my responsibility or yours to pay for that. The sight, yes. The Christian message, no.

    Get it now?
    Peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations; entangling alliances with none.

    That would be funny. I bet all these "Christians" supporting the unsolicited use of their gods on firearms would **** a brick had it been Islamic verses. I would have still said it would be inappropriate.
