Hey everyone my names John. I'm from the Hampton Roads area of VA. I'm 27 years old and married. I'm new to here but have been reading the forums for quite some time. I ordered my first XCR in 7.62 Nov 26, 2008 @ approx. 11am...( I consider this my child). I'm very excited about getting it since the wife finally approved. I have been overwhelmed by the vast knowledge of everyone here. I've honestly learned more on these forums than anywhere else. I'm glad I waited and chose the XCR over other rifles simply because it appears to be able to do all the things I want or need it to do. I'm also extremely impressed with the companies outgoing customers service that I've read about. On a final note it wasn't just the company that sold me on the XCR but the people who post daily and expanded my knowledge. So for everyone pat youselves on the back for a job well done. All the brothers in blue stay safe.
