ABC's story on the 'secret Bible codes stamped on some US weapons' is apparently old news. The military person contacted may have said they did not know anything, but it was fairly well known among some civilian shooting communities for years.
"While ABC News would like to pretend that its investigative team is breaking new ground, the knowledge of scripture notation on Trijicon products was widespread in the civilian shooting community no later than 2006, when posts about the practice were noted on various Internet shooting forums. At that time four years ago, the general reaction seems to have been mild bemusement.
The story then seems to have gone cold for nearly four years … until an entry two weeks ago on Richard Dawkins’ forum expressed incredulity as they rediscovered old news"
