Default Gun Shop still Demoing your gun during 5 day wait period

Hey guys,

Just wanted to get some thoughts about gun dealers that continue to demo with your hand gun after you have paid for it during the 5 day wait period.

Cool or not?

Personally, I'd rather not have my new purchase used as a demo for their other customers during my 5 day wait, but maybe I'm just being too picky?

In my opinion, that's not cool as you've paid for it.

Once you have paid for it, it is no longer theirs. Leave on display, maybe. Hand it to other people NO.

Oklahoma doesnt have a waiting period either but...Hell no its not cool, i dont want grimey fingerprints all over my gun whenever i get it. Body oil can stain the finish or cause rust if left on there, and demo guns get fingered... ALOT

In AZ it is a moot point but I usually ask if they have a fresh in box one and buy that if they do. Once I buy it, I dont want anyone else handling it.

Definitely not cool. I pay for it, it's mine, take it off the shelf.
