In my case, even if I'm able to make it in the same day the dealer gets the gun in & notifies me, I don't step out the front door to go pick it up UNLESS & UNTIL he also notifies me that it's logged in. That means he's opened the box (because he's very careful about regs & confirming numbers) & already gotten his part of the paperwork done before I get there.
Cuts down on the time I have to spend during the pickup transaction.
I couldn't care less about being the first to open the box, it's not like it's never been touched by human hands before.
I WANT it opened before I get there.
And I have no reason to distrust him for doing it.
