yup, from Bowers board legal info, courtesy of James Bardwell: Definition of an 'assault' shotgun.
(D) a semiautomatic shotgun that has at least 2 of- (i) a folding or telescoping stock; (ii) a pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon; (iii) a fixed magazine capacity in excess of 5 rounds; and (iv) an ability to accept a detachable magazine.

So it only applies to semi autos (no more than one of the above features), pump guns are unrestricted with regards to 'evil' features.

another wrinkle: a semi-auto shotgun with a fixed magazine and a capacity of 5 rnds or less can have whatever "aw" features you want.(even detachible mags IF no higher cap mags exist) [url]www.cs.cmu.edu/afs/cs/user/wbardwel/public/nfalist/atf_letter87.txt[/url]
