No federal license is required, but illinois has pretty restrictive laws compared to anywhere in Dixie.

I had one years ago. it was a toy, and a relatively expensive toy to play with.

I would like to get a Short barrel 12 ga pump shotgun to mount under an AR, that would have real utility with buckshot, flares, or other specialty rounds.

If it is a flare launcher you don't need any license (unless your state requires it, each state is different) If it will fire bullets or any deadly projectile it is a Destructive Device and must have the tax stamp to go with it.

willie how does that attach? to the rails? but it looks like it screws on?

They can either mount up on a rail or you can clamp them to the barrel (of an AR anyway) with the M203 fore grip. I've looked into them a few times and intend to buy one when I start trying to put together a clone of my old service rifle.

cause i want to do the rail mount if i can along with a grip. but it looks so long i prolly wont be able to do the grip. i just cant wait to get my AK done an see the looks i get at the range!

The one that Willie posted says it clamps around the barrel and gas tube.

what would be a more secure way to attach it? to the barrel or the or a rail?

I had a full sized one that attached to the barrel with a clamp and two aluminum spacers, and it walked forward every time I shot more than a few rounds. I had fabricated various replacment clamps that mostly worked but I eventually sold it because of PITA factor.

I'd mount it to the rails, if possible. The barrel mount is nearly impossible to secure. That's just my experience. I have one - phase I went through. Phase is over and I have no use for the heavy flare launcher.
