Yes, you can buy inventory for sale to LEO or for sale out of state. Some places won't sell anything not on the list, but that is just their rules, not the law.

If those pistols/revolvers stay in my dealer inventory and I never DROS them into my personal stash can I keep and use them?
Well, it depends on what you mean. You can use them for various purposes, but when you are inspected, the firearms would need to be available to show that you still have them.

If one day I let my business go... can I keep my non-DROSED dealer inventory or do I have to get rid of it or DROS it into my name?
I don't believe so. There is no CA exemption for the DROS when you close your business so the firearms would have to be on the list and you would have to DROS them to you.
