Sand in my new 10-22,

Is there a probability of sand getting further into the lens?

Sand in my new 10-22, I've had it for a little over two weeks, i went on drive around town with some friends, which resulted in us going to the river and getting stuck in the mud. So at that point i put my camera away to help push, but later i heard some strange noises when trying to focus later that night.

I'm still within time to return it.
Is it that big of a deal though, could it effect in the future, sand getting further down into the build? it doesn't affect the auto focusing to slowing down much, and my images still look stellar, but I'm not sure what to do. I'm almost afraid of when they get their item back, they could easily hear that somethings in there and in an end result of me not getting my refund?

Didn't know where else to post.

YOU got the sand in there, it is absolutly unethical to return a product 'damaged' by the user! You needed to ask?!

You shouldn't do it. It's not about getting your money back. It's about being a decent person...

Another case of "it is not my fault" and somebody else should pay. Returning an item because of your damage.

Well, its a good point. but non of us really "decent" people, as much as you might think, & i might think either of us are, this is just a temporary existence for both you me and everyone. So i dont really think its about being a decent person, its more about what your intentions are and what kind of person you are and could be.

This is amazon were talking about. Somewhere i somewhat regret buying from sometimes.

And fine, im just saying i dont care to much about sending them not that damaged of a product because its such a huge company,
If this were any other transaction with a person, a human, i wouldn't exclude the fact that it had sand it in it. Im not some child from hell.
