I'd love to have one, but unfortunately for us here in Texas, the "intended to be fired from the shoulder" text does not exist for shotgun definition under Texas Penal Code, to my knowledge.

So, while it would be unlikely under federal law for shockwave to be considered a short-barreled shotgun because of its pistol grip, under Texas law, it may fall under that definition.

As such, I suspect that it may fall under "short-barrel firearm", and possession without proper paperwork :yawn may result in a third degree felony charge, here in the free State of Texas.


Ah,the "shockwave" indeed...

The next question is:

When does this take effect so I can place my order?

I'd like to know an estimate, because I have multiple projects that need funding, and if this is available relatively soon, it will bump to the front of the line.

Sent to the governor today. Hopefully he will sign it and it will become law. :)
