I don't understand what "don't use scalars" means.
I think that your problem is with the word "stored"? *How* are these
values 'stored'?
If you have
b1 <- 3.14
s1 <- 1.41
then
rnorm(1000, b1, s1)
will not produce NAs.

This is a bit worrying - why would you consider dnorm when you want a
random sample? Or do you just want to plot the Normal curve with mean
equal to b1 and SD equal to s1?
