Common Questions.

What does RedLegg mean?
Well, nothing, it is the company’s name. But “RedLeg” (one g) is slang for field artillery personnel. The term goes back to the American Civil War & referred to the 2” red stripe that was sew on each pant leg of their uniforms. Artillery soldiers were considered to be the elite back then. Most likely because the number of casualties that they inflicted on the battlefield. Artillery killed the lion share of the enemy (around 75%) so they were known as the king of battle. While Lynn was at Fort Sill for his artillery training, he was shouting instructions to fellow redleg’s. He then started to use redleg & his favorite football number as his password for everything. When thinking of the company name, he decided against his name initials but why not a name from a password that would not leave his head? He has since then changed his password & thus the birth of redlegg.
