    I have other firearms that fit the role of self defense and home defense as well as enough hunting firearms. This would fill the fun gun good and I think it would pair well with my mares leg 45. Something just to say I have one I guess is the more practical term I guess.

    I shot one that belongs to a friend of mine. IMNSHO, it's a piece of shit made for the sole purpose of selling.
    I wouldn't buy one with someone else's money.

    Best thing bout the shockwave is trying to talk your buddies into shooting it with 3 inch shells
    It is alot of fun and suprisingly manageable with 2 3/4 shells. I intended to use the aguila mini shells in it but I can't seem to find them anywhere.

    This is a helpful thread. I looked at it as a gun I wanted because it looked cool, but not practical or one I would ever use. I have been fighting the urge to get on on impulse. This thread has killed that impulse. Thank you.

    I bought one. Sent out my Form 1. Waiting on my stamp for an SBS. It's sitting in the safe until I can put a stock on it.

    Many years ago, I had a Remington Witness Protection shotgun, basically the same thing with a 12 in barrel and had to be registered as an AOW with $5.00 tax stamp. I glad I sold it before the shockwave and 870 TAC came out. As some prior posts said, they are a range toy and the novelty wears off quick. Without a stock their is not much you can do with it. Use it in a self defense situation and the media/ police will say you used a "sawoff shotgun" the same kind street thugs used in the 70s. My suggestion;don't buy.

    If you are going to buy, you might consider this option^^

    However, the PSP has pretty much put their blessing on them and determined them to be "firearms", which is classified the same as a handgun. ..requiring a PSP Record of Sale. Which also means your LTCF allows you to carry them concealed or in a vehicle.

    Pretty much all of the gun shops around here sell them, or have them listed on their websites, or will order you one if you want it.
    I was asked about carrying a shockwave in a car, loaded and didnt know the answer. I only completed the long gun form when I bought mine. Can you cite the source? Then I can pass it on to my friend at my LGS, who asked me. Thanks!

    Moses: Is this a $5 tax stamp or a $200 tax stamp? Adding a butt stock does not sound like a bad idea really. Maybe a SBS will fill the void.

    I believe he’d need the $200 stamp. The Shockwave magically transforms from a firearm to an SBS when a butt stock is attached.
