Trijicon

Strike Industries says this Jelly Fish is “almost a necessity”:

Considering Trijicon makes some of the toughest weapon sights in the world which even our military uses, I find it hard to wrap my head around an extraneous cover being “almost a necessity”.   You can see the dot through it if you choose to shoot with the cover on, and it also has a lanyard hole for quick detachment, and finger grip if you want to rip it off quickly.

Lets not get it twisted though, this cover is basically just to protect the lens of the sight if your operating in really inclement operational environments where you might otherwise need to wipe the sight off before use.  According to the FAQ link on the Trijicon RMR page, the sight is completely waterproof to 66ft (20 m), so that basically throws concern out the window for anything except if you’re worried about getting scratches on this $440-$600 sight.  Do real operators worry about scratches?  No, they wear those as a badge of honor on their operating equipment.  If you’re worried about scratches effecting the resale value of a sight you’re probably not operator enough to even own, then you probably should pick one up for $12.95 on the Strike Industries website.  Look yourself in the mirror when you put it on though, and admit defeat.  

Next up, a custom molded shoot through jelly full Glock cover?  A jelly Deagle brand Deagle cover?  I hope so.

Thoughts?

I definitely need a RMR milled into my slide some day:

A quick run through of the criteria needed to be an operator:

✔Noise cancelling hearing protection
✔Oakley sunglasses
✔Scruffy Beard
✔Polo shirt with random operator companies you’ve probably never heard of
✔Thermal long sleeve under the polo shirt
✔Paracord bracelet
✔Weapon light during daylight ops
✔Suunto watch
✔Raven Concealment holster

Yea this guy is an operator.

You gotta love the sound in MichaelBarnes‘ videos too.

More than two months after an ABC News report that rifle scopes used by U.S. soldiers are inscribed with secret Biblical references, troops in Afghanistan and Iraq are still carrying the so-called Jesus rifles – and the U.S. military says it could take a year to remove the Bible codes from all its weapons. (ABC News source)

A year? I wonder how many millions of dollars this will cost. :roll: COME ON…

These aren’t your average cheap rifle scopes.  If they want the verse removed just tell the soldiers to take a rock, screwdriver etc.. to the inscription.  Or make one guy in every unit, in charge of the task. Problem Solved. It’s not like the lettering stands more than a couple hundredths of an inch high. You just would have to be careful not to scratch off the serial number.

I talked about the story when it first surfaced in January on a post called Trijicon – Religious Aiming Solutions which got quite a bit of attention on forums for the photoshop I did.

So the ACOG weapon sights have references to bible verses on them.  Who cares?

What’s next? Criticism over the configuration and appearance of the reticle?

I whipped this up in photoshop today after seeing the article on SayUncle
