I was sure this was a weird urban legend, till my buddy DoubleTapper told me all about it and posted all the details on his blog.
Apparently, the code JN8:12 which is encapsulated in the Trijicon Rifle Scope's serial number is an intentional mention of the book of John, chapter 8, verse 12.
Now, that's NOT going to stop me from using these rifle scopes (since they are the best marksman scopes out there), but I would perhaps scrape off the numbers.
What would be a good replacement pasuk from the Torah for an IDF rifle?
(I wonder if the Nachal Chareidi Batallion will do anything about this).
Going to Israel?
