Hey Mr. Robinson,Guys:
I've got to get the new stock in production. The FAGPUL stocks are making me sick. Nicely made but too darn thick. I have something which is very elegant looking and tough too. I'll keep ya all posted as soon as I can.

You've probably taken about as much grief on your Romney stuff as you can stomach and I'm not piling on, but I got to call you on this post. First off, let me say, I think you are a genius. I have owned a Vepr, I have an XCR and have a 6.5, and 7.62 on order. The participation of Robinson Arms folks on this forum is a huge plus and I admire your responsiveness to your customers. I think you have serious game at designing guns. Your products stand on there own. There really isn't a need to slam Magpul. In my experience they make pretty good stuff. There certainly isn't a need to use epithets and homophobic insults to do it. It doesn't make you look good, it caters to the stereotype of gun owners being a bunch of ignorant red necks, and it alienates customers. Here in the northwest, we have had several anti gay violent attacks and I have had many gay colleagues ask me for fire arms instruction. I think spreading the sunshine to all people, arming and training law abiding folks, regardless of their orientation is a good thing. The time is coming when the 2nd amendment is going to need all the supporters it can get. When a gay prospective customer searches this website to find out whether the XCR is a good choice for a defensive rifle (and I think it is), and they come across your post, do you think it will encourage them to buy your product?
Stepping off my soapbox! Have a good new year.
