Then they will order from the manufacturer, ship to them then to you. Thats why they are sux!
Impact does tend to stretch the definition of "in stock."
Not exactly a defense of their policy, more of a clarification: If they can lay their hands on it from either their warehouse, one of their stores OR... (get this) their distributor shows it on hand, they consider it in stock. I don't agree with the distributor interpretation. But since Impact (Ogden) is my LGS and every one of their employees I've dealt with has been great, I'm willing to let that one go. I order a gun, it comes in in a reasonable amount of time, good enough for me. Opinions vary of course.
