The Cop Shop has 7 G30S' in stock. I was just in there a few minutes ago contemplating a purchase between the G30S and G30SF (which they do not have in stock). I still don't know which one I want.
I do not believe they are releasing on the 8th day. Sam believes if you have your paperwork IN before 10/01 that you will not need the HQL. He thinks that makes the most sense. He won't find out for sure until the 27th though, when he gets to meet with the MSP.
