    OK, that all makes sense, but what about smaller, startup manufacturers, or custom gun manufacturers? This is a device that's both designed to be safe for the user, and yet pack tremendous power to inflict the maximum damage in the lightest, easiest to carry and most aesthetically pleasing package. The concern in my mind is that a less skilled or talented freelance gun designer could actually possibly underestimate the explosive force of the gunpowder, and that could disrupt and break a component that is poorly engineered or incorrectly hardened, resulting in backfire.

    Even professional gun manufacturers can make dangerous mistakes. Take this one, where the safety must be set to "Fire" in order to unload the gun. In this case, it resulted in paralyzing a child when the babysitter was unloading the pistol and it went off unexpectedly.

    "The same gun continues to be made by Bryco, now operating as Jimenez Arms.
    Brandon did not receive a cent from the jury verdict. The owner of Bryco Arms, Bruce Jennings, declared bankruptcy, and spent 1.3 million in legal fees to claim bankruptcy and avoid paying the judgment and other creditors.
    Mr. Jennings spent over $900,000 last year on a new house, car and aircraft."

    Yeah, I know. I used guns as an example of regulatory oversight, I was corrected and it fell off the rails from there.

    After being on hold for a long ass time, someone at best buy says their computer said they had a bunch, but they don't. So, the warehouse wasnt sending them any. So, mine will be there late next week. Then I get home, eat, get settled in, and bam, an email. Your phone is at best buy. Wtf? Too late to go get it. Hopefully they still have it tomorrow.

    I'd hope, if they emailed you, that they'll hold it for you.

    Well, better than next week but you'd think they would know better what the inventory is and when it's arriving. I'm happy to hear your replacement is coming soon.

    We already get either a $25 credit on our bill or $25 credit towards accessories.
    As for the device arriving at different stores at different times, and after speaking with a number of Note 7 users here and various other forums, it appears that customers who ordered directly from Samsung & and/or their respective carriers are receiving their replacements a day or two before big box stores like Best Buy, Costco, etc.
    Regardless, replacement devices are here and if you don't happen to have yours yet, you should receive it very soon.

    When I made my best buy recall preorder on the 19th, they said those that came in to set theirs up right away, got them the week before. Turns out of they didn't have inventory errors, a lot of other people would have had them way earlier too. Going after my kids baseball game this morning.
