AOW's are also verboten in NY right?
Ironically many of the places that design and produce weapons, also prohibit sale/posession of weapons.

I believe SBR's are considered Pistols in New York and other than the Federal paperwork required would also require a New York Pistol License.

SBR's are illegal in NY. There are two NYS legal AOW's that are classified as smooth bore pistols in NYS.

The ATT 8-Ball:


The Serbu Super Shorty:

I like the 8ball. is it 4+1 or 3+1. says 4 shot but I've seen that interpretted both ways.

Because of the difficulty of carrying it concealed and the security issues of leaving it unsecured in a motor vehicle I can't see going through all the hassles to get one in NY.

In the house an 8 rd 18" Winchester Defender with a pistol grip and a sling is more practical without the sign off/registration hassles of an AOW.

it'd still be neat to be able to drive around (legally that is) with a loaded shotgun though
although I make it a rule not to drive around areas where I might need the intemidation factor/firepower of a 12 gauge at a moments notice

Keep in mind that it requires two hands to operate, kicks like a mule and will be unwieldy to move it around in a MV. Unless you're driving around with it in your lap (not very likely or recommended) chances are you'll never get to it in time to be of much use in an emergency situation.
