Hey, I did the same thing about three months ago. Great minds thinking alike, etc. :D geegee

Saw a guy in a Molon Labe hat at the Boise gun show last month. When he got to our table I asked him if he missed "The Firing Line," thinking he'd pick right up on it. He looked at me like I'd fallen out of a tree, then said something like "I rarely miss at the firing line" then turned away like he thought I was crazy.
I felt kinda dumb and didn't bother explaining or talking further - figured I'd "removed all doubt" in his mind and didn't want to make it worse.

One might wonder just exactly what one is going to "come and get." ;)

Has anyone ever made a ballistic vest with Molon Labe emblazoned on the front? ;)

Dump question of the night. What's Molon Labe?. I keep seeing it almost every where.

Don't feel bad I was just going to ask the same question. People, translation please?:)

Now I'm married, so of course I didn't notice this, but if I wasn't married I'd say that the woman wearing that tank top better understand what it means (and not just think it's a local frat. thing on campus...)

oh and one thing I didn't see anybody mention: the 'b' in romanized greek is pronounced the same way we pronounce the letter 'v'.
and no, I don't know why, but if you think that's wierd you should see the 19th century Wade-Giles romanization of mandarin chinese!

Yup, it IS everywhere, ostensibly. I just had the sideplate of my S&W 617 10-shot .22 laser engraved with Molon Labe in the original Greek lettering--looks great!

It may be springing up, but it's NOT universally understood, even by "gunny" people. A couple of weeks back, I went to orientation at the shooting club I later joined, and had several of the long-term members ask me what it meant, and where I got it. "It" was one of Corriea's green hats.
Being the sort of guy I am, I had to give them the full skinny. Some recalled hearing of the event, one admitted his Greek teacher would be annoyed that he hadn't been able to translate it. At least no one got that "Oh no, another gun nut" look.

A waitress at my fave lunch place asked about it. I have her reading Gates of Fire now. :cool:

Thinking about getting it engraved on a pair of Alumnagrips for my 1911.
