    I doubt it was hurting Remington but it's definitely a no brainer to offer it to the public. What I find interesting is the split between the folks that enjoy hacking the NFA regulations and the folks that think you should just pay the tax.

    I also think it's been demonstrated that these tools are more than just a novelty.

    How can these be sold through FFLs if not legal in the state? Not like that would stand up in court. Just asking. I can't walk out of a shop with an SBR or SBS without a lot of paperwork after waiting. Do they know something we don't? or are they just winging it?

    So these were also illegal in Texas until they passed a handy bill yesterday.
    Seems OK should follow suit.

    That would definitely go a long way toward clearing up the confusion regarding OK's statutes where "sawed off shotguns" are concerned.

    It would also really be interesting to see who opposes it and tries to torpedo it. Buncha RINOs will probably lay low, the smarter ones at least.

    We definitely need a law like that here, whether or not the Shockwave is legal or not already! I'm afraid it won't happen though.

    My local gun store had several Mossberg 'Shockwave'(s) for sale recently and I was able to shoot one on their range. It is definitely fun to shoot and, with reduced recoil loads, not at all bad to handle [for an old guy like me]. Though it could be classed as a niche or novelty gun, I could see where it would excel as a HD weapon in close quarters (an apartment or RV) or as a truck or boat gun.
    As MadDogs and several other posters have commented, a laser sight would [significantly] aid in aiming, though I would tend to be wary of the 'Center Mass' laser which doesn't seem to hold up to recoil well (according to the majority of user comments that I've read).
    I wish our legislature would address the legality of this 'firearm', but I guess if wishes were horses, we would all own a herd!

    I know an Individual who just ordered one and purchased it through an FFL here in OKC. Sounds like they are good to go as far as what I was told.

    They should be GTG. However, we Oklahomans don't exactly have that in writing in the legal sense. As I've said before in this thread, technically an LEO or DA can create a stink for the owner of one of these Shockwaves if he/she wants to. Will they? Probably not, buuuuut.....

    I agree with you completely. All it would take is for one LEO having a bad day and one DA with dreams of becoming the next State Attorney General via aggressive prosecutions, to ruin ones whole day. Unfortunately, this 'firearms' State legal status will not be address anytime soon because our politicians seldom vote based on need, but rather on personal career enhancement or by which way the political winds blow at the time.
