Any Other Weapon. Technically speaking, the BATFE classifies the AOW as a smooth bore pistol...

Just sayin'! ;)
That's not true either... Many types of guns fit into AOW, many with rifled bores. Smooth bores are just one type of AOW's.

AOW - any other weapon, is a category of firearms which do not fall into any
of the other federal definitions: pistol, rifle, shotgun, destructive device,
short bbl rifle, short bbl shotgun, silencer.......and then, 'any other weapon'.

the wonderful tome, written by James Bardwell (attorney) remains one of the best NFA,

I should have been less vague. I've had discussions with ATF examiners(thanks to Coctailer for providing phone numbers) and they all stated that an AOW shotgun is considered a smooth bore pistol.

Mind you, this was about a year ago and the agency has a tendecy to change rules as they see fit, without advance and without warning.

Check your local listings, you mileage may vary, etc., etc. ;)
