Correct in that it is a French word, but.....
If pronounced in French it would be Lou-pole. Very slight "L" sound at the end. The "d" would be silent as there is no "e" following.

Trijicon?

"Tri" is pronounced like "trip" without the "p". "ji" is pronounced like "Jill" without the "ll". So so it's pronounced, Tri-ji-con


Crap, I thought it was Spanish and was pronounced Tree-he-cone.

Luckily I have never had to say it out loud. :)

Leupold may be a French name...But they pronounce it Loo, coz that's where you'll always find the French hiding when there is danger:D Ah... The French, always right there, when they need you.;)

Maybe this is why I bought a Burris?

Speaking of...they are on sale at Natchezss right now.

$200 shipped with the spotting scope. Sounds like a good deal to me.

I believe Garand is pronounced GAIR-und, kinda like errand w/ a "G."

Ga-RAND is what most people call it (or M1), so that's what I say as well. Clear communication is of greater importance to me than being Dr. Correct-all. ;)

just say it the way it sounds in your head, if they give you the scope you said it right. :p

If they look at you like this:confused: then you might want to rethink it.:D :D

Taken from Trijicon's FAQ:

Trijicon is pronounced: Trîj-î-(kòn)
