I know a dealer who claims his policy is that if he runs your 4473, you've already agreed to purchase the firearm. If you fail, he'll hold it, and you owe what amounts to a 20% restocking fee (20% consignment fee, up front). He'll even sell it to someone else for you.
I would tell them to shove it. There are a multitude of clerical errors, that are out of your control, that could lead to a denial. And if they haven't sold you anything yet, how can they charge a restocking fee? That firearm isn't sold until after you have been cleared, you have paid, and that firearm has been logged in their book as sold.
Ask him why he isn't ensuring he isn't selling a firearm to someone that isn't qualified before he sells it to them. Sounds like a felony to me.
Have you guys ever noticed that dealers don't fill out the 4473 with the firearms being purchased, until AFTER they get an authorization number?
I think that warning is his way of telling you that if you won't pass, don't waste his time, or he will charge you for it.
