Pixel XL would be several weeks out, especially if you didn't preorder. And the marketing for it is a little confusing... Makes it sound like the pixel is Verizon only.
Yes. Just walk into a Best Buy, Target or even a Wal-Mart. They almost always have stock in when the carrier stores and the Apple store are on waiting lists. It's a bit more a a hassle dealing with the general phone reps in these stores, but they can get you the same phones, under the same carrier payment/installment plans that the carrier stores offer. I was easily able to get my iPhone 7 128 gig in matte black at a Best Buy Mobile store in a local mall. I know several Targets near by had them in stock too. This includes the 7 and the 7+.
EDIT: Only thing you won't find is the Jet Black version, but there is stock for all other colors.
