If htey're willing to have me pay for a gun they don't have in stock and keep my $$ interest free for 4 months (on 3 guns!), there's no reason they shouldn't hold a gun for you till you can DROS it.
It was not a threat. It was an exaggerated response to an uncompromising stance. I was taught never to make a threat unless you are prepared to carry it out and I am not a fan of carrying anything. Even watching other people carrying things makes me uncomfortable. Mainly because of the possibility they may ask me to help.
