i am no expert, either, but I believe the federal definition of a shotgun is "a weapon designed or redesigned, made or remade, and intended to be fired from the shoulder, and designed or redesigned and made or remade to use the energy of the explosive in a fixed shotgun shell to fire through a smooth bore either a number of ball shot or a single projectile for each single pull of the trigger." This is confusing since many smooth bore shot guns can be fitted with a rifled barrrel.

Going further, I think the reason the Circuit Judge is not considered a shotgun is its rifled barrel cannot be replaced with a smooth bore barrel. Read the warning at the Circuit Judge web page about how it is impossible to do as the parts are not available in the USA.
